Grant and Cole decided that they wanted to be Harry Potter and Ron for Halloween and they begged Mark and I to join in. They wanted Mark to be Sirius Black and with his long hair and beard he does look really similar. I got assigned Bellatrix...hmm... all the boys were good guys and I was assigned the evil crazy one? What does that say? ;)
They always have a Trunk or Treat each year and you KNOW Mark and I have to have the funnest car around right? Ha, no... that actually was not the plan but a close friend called and convinced me that everyone was expecting something great so we threw our costumes and trunk idea together the hour before we needed to be there! I'm pretty sure we were the only parents dressed up. Awkward? Yeah. But the kids had so much fun and the boys were really happy we went along with their theme so it was worth the embarrassment. We gave away glow necklaces instead of candy and they had to play a ring toss game to get one. Mark spoke in his best British dialect/Sirius Black accent the whole night. I think the kids really loved it although most were a little afraid of me!
I wish we had, had time to take real pictures but we were running late so here are the instagram snaps.
If we showed up at your Halloween party would you be friends with us?
