Trick or Treat!

We had a great Halloween night! A mom from our homeschool group hosted a Halloween party at her house. It was so much fun. Everyone brought a potluck dish (lots of yummy food), the kids got to run around and play games in the dark- mummy tag, pumpkin races, they swung from a giant tree swing, and then we went on a trick-or-treat trail through the woods behind their property. At the end of the trail, they had lit a fire and the kids got to roast marshmallows. We didn't leave until almost 10 and the boys did NOT want to go home yet (but this momma was exhausted). I didn't get a lot of shots b/c my camera doesn't take very good night pictures, but I was able to get a shot of the boys before we left.
Our group is amazing. We have all become such good friends and it is great to have such a large support group for not just homeschool stuff, but parenting in general (we all have the same parenting and life philosophies). Peter was a bit skeptical about the boys having fun without receiving typical treats (all the treats given were healthy-muffins, organic lolipops, fruit leathers, granola bars, trail mix), but the boys did not ask once about junk candy, nor did they complain about their treats!

Before the party. Parker decided at the last minute that he wanted to be Nemo, again. Since he is such a peanut and never seems to grow much, the costume still fit perfectly. I will let you guess what Blake is!
