Trick or Treat

Ah, Halloween. It's that time of year when I spend more money on making costumes for the kids than I intended, which is usually more than buying a costume at the store would be.
However, it is usually worth it.
Tye was Jeff Hardy this year. In case you don't know who that is, he's a WWE wrestler. The most important part of his gear is the cut up arm warmer things he apparently wears. Tye showed me a photo of them weeks ago and I knew they would be fairly easy to create. He tried them on tonight and said to his friend, "Dude, check em out. They are so sweet & perfect. And my mom made them." That made it so worth every dime.
So here is is all dressed up with purple hair & face paint.

Then he did the Jeff Hardy pose.

A G.I. Joe character named Snake Eyes showed up (a friend of ours).

Then a demon tried to attack us (another friend)...

And from out of the shadows, rose a werewolf (also a friend)

But then another WWE wrestler, John Cena, aka Bodie, came to the rescue. First he showed off his muscles...

Kissed his guns...

Showed off his championship belt...

Then defeated the monters!

Actually, Bodie satyed back with Grandma & me to hand out candy. He's never been big on trick-or-treating. Tye on the other hand lives for it. He and the other boys went out for a bit & came back with a bucketful! They were worn out & went to bed early. Thank goodness we get an extra hour of sleep tonight!
