Alvord/Merrill Halloween Party

Last night we went to Josh's mom's house for her annual Halloween party. This party usually falls on Halloween night but this year it was the day before. Usually everyone dresses up but we were the only cool ones who showed up in costume. It is tradition for Bonnie, my mother-in-law, to make home made donuts, bread sticks and chili.


She makes these completely from scratch, can you believe it?


Here we are dressed up again. We are going for a record # of costume changes this year. Josh is an old school basketball player and I'm a ballerina. I miss dressing like this. I want to start taking dance classes again.

We were trying to teach Kennedy what to say when she knocks on people's doors for candy. She didn't quite get it. This is her best "Scooby smile". She is going to be Scooby Doo for Halloween.

Our niece Rylie dressed up in her costume. She is a lady bug. She and Jayden are carving their pumpkins.

Sammy and Cole working on their pumpkins.

Lauren can be quite the sassy pants sometimes. She told Josh he needed to go in a "poop time out." This is them having a time out war.

I know. Josh and I both better hope she doesn't see our costumes. We'll be scolded for being the horrible people we are. She can bite me.

so is a "poop time out" where you go and sit in a room with poop, or is it where you can't go poop until your time out is over?
