This was the year. The year the stars aligned and everyone wanted to be a Star Wars character. You might think that I pressure my kids into a theme. I don’t. I used to – but honestly there was very little pressuring and much more excitement at new costumes. These days I’m surprised that the theme idea is still a big hit. The kids are coming up with more ideas that we’ll ever have years to do. Mario characters was a big contender – but in the end they decided on Star Wars. I was pretty happy with that idea since Matt and Luke already own Star Wars costumes and have never worn them Trick or Treating. Ryan and Katie did not want to be left out of this years fun either.
Ryan – Obi Wan Jedi Master
Katie – Awesome Jedi Girl … she told everyone she was Luke Skywalker’s girlfriend. “It’s recent” she said.
Emily – Princess Leah – Of course Emily was Princess Leah. She definitely has the best hair for it. She loved her costume. So perfect for her!
Megan – Padma - Love this girl
Luke – Luke Skywalker of course
Matthew – Darth Vader – Matthew loves all things Darth Vader. Matt sure loved dressing up and really ‘getting into character’. He was battling everyone and took down Jedi Katie a couple times. Man, that’s a cute Darth Vader!
Such a fun Halloween week. On Wednesday we had the Ward Trunk or Treat and Carnival which was really well done and had a lot of fun activities. On Friday, Halloween night, we had 9 families of Cordera friends over for crock pot soups and then trick or treating, games of pool, pumpkin bars, hot apple cider, Hotel Transylvania movie for the kids and lots of talking. Such a great night. I love that we have so many good friends here!
