This was Ben when we went to his office:
He found some weird metal thing and put it in his doorway, and then he would reach out and creepily scare kids as they came to get treats out of his bowl. He would use this growley voice and say, "Oh... they put this up to keep me away from kids. I love eating children..."
He's such a dork.
You can just call me the Halloween Scrooge. I totally hate dressing up. I hate that my kids fight over candy for like two weeks after Halloween. I hate spending money on costumes. I hate spending money on candy for trick-or-treaters. I know, I am such a party pooper. I guess that holidays are a little more stressful when you're the one in charge, you know?? I used to love Christmas, but I haven't been a fan for several years now. Too big of a pain in the butt. And too expensive.
Anyways. Ben wanted to go around and see the other peoples' costumes, so after he scared our children, he walked around with us from office to office. And scared children in the hallways. :)
Sadie picked this costume out at Wal-Mart - a pixie:
Dylan was a ninja (look at that adorable, toothless smile):
Gage was a chili pepper:
And Bruiser was a cowboy. Who wouldn't wear his hat or cowboy boots:
He's so stubborn. Or maybe he got his mom's I-hate-dressing-up gene.
