Star Wars Halloween

I am neither a Star Wars fan or a Halloween fan but this year I had a really fun Star Wars Halloween with my kids. This summer we bought a trampoline at a garage sale. While Garth was diligently taking apart the trampoline (that he didn't even want) the kids and I killed time browsing the tables. Carter found a Darth Maul costume and just HAD to have it. I thought since Sydney has the long hair already, I could make her Leia pretty easily. My mother-in-law Theresa caught wind of that and went nuts! I am so grateful to her for these awesome costumes. It started with Leia, she made this great costume (it even had a hood).

Then when I told her I wasn't going to dress Derek up (because I'm too cheap to buy costumes). . .She showed up one day with this! I am so impressed with her sewing skills and the funny thing is, she actually thanked me for letting her make these fun costumes and said all she wants for repayment is a picture of the kids wearing them. I am so spoiled!

Halloween was busy with Carter's kindergarten party, a visit to Dad's office, party at Beneficial (my mom's office), then pizza and trick-or-treating with some neighbors/kindergarten friends.


Happy Halloween! Watch out Theresa, I might "hint" what my kids want to be every year!

What great costumes! I love themes for Halloween. Theresa did such a great job. Such cute kids!

We're trying to save money, so we will not be traveling anywhere for the holidays this year...plus my mom is coming to UT to visit in December. But most likely sometime next year we'll come to Spokane.

So cute! I think we should get our little boys together every year for a "We were Yoda" club meeting. :) Theresa is so talented and your kids are darling.
