Since I'm still surrounded by boxes, I broke with tradition and did not make costumes this year. We dug through our boxes of costumes, and the kids all found something they were happy with. We ended up using costumes from 4 different years. There were a bunch of different activities at the Trunk-or-Treat, including pictures with a professional photographer. The kids had a lot of fun.

In 2011 we were all either vikings or dragons from the movie "How to Train Your Dragon" and in 2012 most of the kids did a "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" theme. Lana and Gwyn were Oompa Loompas, Everett was Willy Wonka, and Emma was a blueberry. Maddie chose to be a fairy queen. Next year I'll most likely be making costumes again. I have a lot of fun with it, but it was nice to have an easy year this time!
