I thought I should hurry and post my Halloween pics before December officially starts. Check the post date, it's still November for 4 1/2 more hours.

My kiddos wore a few different costumes over the 2 days of Halloween events because they just couldn't decide which one they liked best.

The pilot and pirate. This is what they wore at Nanos school while watching the parade. I'm diggin' the kids' mustaches, but the poor Black Pearl has seen better days...

Nanos and his best friend in their class. They are so freaking cute.

On our way to the church for indoor trick-or-treating. The kids love this because they know most of the people, and they hit the sugar-coma jack pot in less than an hour. Honestly, they walked away with several pounds of candy each.

Jojy looks so cute as Elvis!!!! He loved wearing it too. Even though he has no idea who Elvis is, he proudly declared it when asked. I also taught him to tell people "Thank yuh, thank yuh veruh much"- surprisingly he actually said it a lot and soaked up the laughter and attention. Not usually his thing, so it was even more fun for me to watch.

Bear as a "Wild Thing". Very appropriately dressed. ;-)

The baby "King Max" and his Daddy. Sure the baby is adorable and all, but look at Jeff- swoon! He is so handsome!

My niece as Minnie Mouse. Awwww. I especially love the cartoony shoes! I wish I'd gotten better pictures of her.

My nephews as Mario and Luigi. Why do I think mustaches on kids are so HI-larious? And yes, my mother made every costume you see here. She's pretty awesome.

These two pics were after our outdoor trick-or-treating with Jeff's family. I just love this costume, this is my third child to wear it because I love it so much!

We still have a ridiculous amount of candy left. I'm ready to throw it away. Thankfully the kids are good about it and haven't throw one fit about me mixing everyone's candy together or restricting it's consumption. Whew. My kids are awesome.

Love love love freaking LOVE these costumes. Your mother is a sewing genius I tell you!

Ridiculously cute children don't hurt either, I LOVE that Jojy was being so funny about his Elvis costume!

Smart idea, mixing the candy. My kids always fight over somebody getting something that they didn't get. I'm totally doing that next year. I love the costumes, you always have rockin' costumes thanks to your talented mom, so jealous.

Now you just need to post our Thanksgiving day 5K pics and show the world how hot two sweaty mommies can be!!

...better late than never! These pictures are darling and I can't believe your mom made all these costumes. My mom bought all our costumes so it was a treat for me when my aunt created a handmade costume just for me. Dave's mom made elaborate costumes for all 7 of her kids. I told Dave not to hold his breath when it comes to costumes for our little ones. :)

Awesome costumes! When I grow, I will make costumes like that...

HOLY CRAP! I'm DYING over Elvis!!! Those costumes totally rock. Glad you have to deal with the mountains of candy and not me.

Amazing!!!! I loved seeing your family during trunk or treat. Elvis is ridiculously cute and him saying "thank yuh..." is just over the top!

Cutest costumes ever. I wish I was in Utah so I could have raided your costume closet and not had to sink to the Target candy corn costume.

Your mom is so talented! She could start her own business & make a ton of money.
Love the pics. Such handsome boys! Love Cathy's little girl-looks exactly like her.

I see that Elvis is alive and has been using some reverse aging cream.
