Family Halloween Party

This past weekend, I headed to the valley to see my Uncle Mark and his family. He is in the military and being transfered to San Diego so he stopped here for a few days. It was great to see him again. We also had our family Halloween Dinner. It's so much fun. All the kids dress up and we have a dinner where they are given a menu with things like witches brew, goblins eyes etc. and they order off of it and are given real food. This has been a tradition since I was a kid. Then they end the evening with a little trick-or-treating inside the house in all the doors down stairs.

I was way excited about finally breaking out the costumes and figured since Cambree couldn't stop talking about hers, that she would be excited as well. I think a lack of sleep added to the drama of the night and just made me extremely frustrated. We put on her costume and then attempted to try and take pictures-my first major mistake. She was being such a diva. These were only a few of the pictures I got of her being a stinker.

This is my sweet, gorgeous 7 year old cousin Olivia. She was so cute with Cambree and Brecklynn.

Here's part of the trick-or-treating. Notice Ridge is without costume....and so goes my luck of the night.

Here's my Uncle Mark with Brecklynn. He was so great with her. She was constantly smiling with him.

Here's the great dinner. This is the youngest kids of the group.

Here are some of the kids of the family. Notice Cambree is MIA along with Ridge.

Ridge did make it into this one.

Brecklynn being a cute pumpkin

Here is what Ridge's costume is supposed to look like. It was a construction worker. He hasn't wanted to put this all on since first getting it. We'll see what Halloween brings but I guess I at least got one picture of him before he took it off.


Grammy Suzzy and DJ Doran said... are such a great Mommy! I would have thrown a fit bigger than the little ones...You handled things just perfectly. Cambree's costume is just lovely!!! Kids are just so interesting when it comes to costumes...some want to sleep in theirs, and some can't stand them, even if that is the one they picked! Go figure!!!
