Halloween 2016 - family of super heros!

I'm in shock that it's already Halloween!!!  How did it happen that October is over now and we are onto November?  This fall is flying by.

However, it sure doesn't feel like October in Kansas City.  With these hot temperatures, it's CRAZY! Do I dare say I'm almost looking forward to some cooler weather?

We are excited to trick or treat and go to a few neighbor's houses, but I'm guessing we won't be in our full family super hero attire.  Maddie decided she wanted to wear the Elsa dress instead of her Bat girl costume on Friday and Mikey's Robin costume is fleece - which I figured would be excellent considering it's usually freezing....not 80 degrees.  So we will see if I make him wear that.

Super hero's was an easy and obvious choice this year because they picked out their costumes in August when CostCo had them for sale.  Score.  And just order me, Jimmy and Mikey's costumes on Amazon and throw a dress up cape on Toby- done!!!  I actually had our cards ordered well in advance (impressive, right?) but of course didn't get around to addressing them super early. Oh well!!  Such is life!!

We used my new bluetooth phone clicker to take these family pictures ourselves...which is insane they actually turned out!!! :)

I then made the kiddos go inside and try to take ones of just the three of them.  ha.  Easier said than done!  

Poor Mikey though - was NOT a fan of his mini-mask at all.  I thought it was hilarious but so adorable.  I swear this kid melts my heart!

And here is our card from this year!

Seriously though, wishing you a very happy halllween!!!

What's so crazy is to look back at our card from past Halloweens and how different our kids look and how much they have grown up.  I seriously cannot belive it!  And to think that Mikey will be 15 months this time next year blows my mind!!!
