How about a Pink Pig for ABC Wednesday?

This Halloween was interesting….

halloween-014 My favorite Pirate Detested (with a capital D) his costume.

halloween 001 Here he is at the Halloween Parade next to a Whoopie Cushion!

How fun is that?

halloween 002 And here are two of his favorite friends!

An I pod and a Transformer!

I heart those children!

Don’t you LOVE the i-pod’s creative mother?

She is my neighbor and I think she is SO so cool!

halloween 003 Here are the Cutest football players on the planet : )

halloween 004 And some cross dressers…..

halloween 005 Our sweet friend Kevin as a tiara wearing Woman : )

My neighbors are so cute.

It is Ridiculous…!

halloween 007Oh my gosh! Is this witch the cutest or what?

(Jonathon’s little cousin)

halloween 013 The Whoopie Cushion, The Mad Pirate, and Hannah Montana!

halloween 008 And last of all-

but certainly not least-

the Pink Poodle that does not love her Aunt at all….

halloween 009Here is another shot of the i-pod

(because I know you wanted a more detailed look!)

Spooks
 Sandra Liatsos
There's a goblin at my window,
A monster by my door.
The pumpkin at my table
Keeps on smiling more and more.
There's a ghost who haunts my bedroom,
A witch whose face is green.
They used to be my family,
Till they dressed for Halloween.

I want to just THANK the Lord

that the last of Kaishon’s tempting candy

is gone.

Ay yi yi….

What age do most kids stop trick or treating?

I think I was in 9th grade.

I can’t remember for sure though!

Love the pictures! The iPhone is my favorite. I impressed that a young boy had the confidence to wear a tiara. I will admit that I participated in trick or treat through my sr year of High school.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, I love all your pictures! They are just marvelous. And all the kids are so cute, so precious, I just wanted to hug them all! It brought back so many fun memories of my four when they were that age and all the trick or treating we did! Great post!

Hey, and no more candy till next year -- right? Yeah, sure!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Great photos! This year it seems a lot of people got very creative with their costumes! I'm very impressed. (And your Mad Pirate was the handsomest!!!)

Ruby Red Slippers said...

Love the pictures, and the Ipod was so unique...but I love the pirate the best!!!

Anonymous said...

Oh my gosh those pictures are the BEST! I have had a costume every year of my live...well...at least as far back as I remember....and I am 50....since we have a party in class each year I have to dress up...but I don't really trick-or-treat but I do wear my costume to pass out candy :)

Alicia said...

LOL, love the Iphone costume! So high tech!!

You take the best close-ups, Rebeckah!

Everyone is adorable!

Traci said...

Everyone is adorable including the less than thrilled Kaishon! I have to say, though, I especially love the whoopie cushion.
:-)

i don't know what ABC Wednesday is but i really love all your photos today! Really incredible. And I love Kaishon's final costume decision. His face while sitting next to the Whoopee Cushion (hilarious!) is great.

Hildred and Charles said...

Wonderful post, - ain't it grand to be a kid on Halloween!

Baloney said...

Tons and tons of candy around here. I've already picked through and put some in the frig for me (I love cold chocolate!). I think I was 9th grade last time I trick or treated?
Kaishon looks great in his pirate attire. Why did he hate it?

Joanna Jenkins said...

Awesome pictures. All the kids look great!
Thanks for sharing.

Erin said...

Kaishon looks so great! He's going to be a heartbreaker!

All the costumes are great!

Sonya said...

WOW those costumes are fantastic!!! I have a special spot for the not so happy Pirate. I think he looks fantastic.

photowannabe said...

Terrific costumes and great closeups too. I think Kaishon looks handsome as the pirate, even if he didn't like it.

BoufMom9 said...

LOL! He sure wasn't very happy, was he?
I didn't let my oldest 3 go this year. they can dress up for parties, but no trick-or-treating once they hit highschool. (that's my mean mommy rule.)

Liz said...

If I had dressed up for Halloween I would have REALLY wanted to be that iPhone! That is too cool! Sorry Kaishon was upset about being a pirate. He looked great!

Suki said...

You never stop trick or treating! At least we never did.

Maggie May said...

Brilliant outfits....... especially the iPod. And who is that handsome pirate?!!
Nuts in May

Run DMT said...

Great costumes! The iPod was my favorite! That was brilliant!

I think pirates ARRRRRRR awesome! Kaishon makes a handsome one too.

Nessa said...

All of the kids look great. Why didn't Kaishon like his pirate costume?

Jules said...

What great costumes! I love the iPod!

Marilyn said...

I think 9th grade is about right.

Very handsome pirate! Our little sugarplums were: A dr.(he went to his first dance and had FUN!!), A phantom ninja, and Darth Vader (this one was dangerous with the light saber)

Busy Bee Suz said...

I think they all look wonderful. I would have kept all his candy if he did not smile and have fun!!!
I think 8th grade is the end for us...sadly.

blueviolet said...

What wonderful costumes! Terrific group of happy kids.

I quit going after 6th grade myself. I was just over it.

Happy W/W!

The OmniCouple said...

Those are really great photos! The one of the kiddo named Kevin in a tiara is hilarious, but also actually a really neat pic.

Jen said...

Wow, those are some great costumes!

Mighty M said...

The costumes are sure creative - that ipod is amazing! I think your pirate looks pretty good. Hopefully next year he will decide on something a little earlier! :)

JennyMac said...

Love the pics...cutest pirate ever.

And the whoopie cushion? Hilarious.
iPod? Genius.

Lolli said...

I seriously love those creative costumes. I am going to have to do a search next October through all of these posts so I can re-create some of these brilliant costumes for my kids. Then I can be the cool mom. :)

Reader Wil said...

Okay...KEVIN is an awesome, fun, amazing kid!!

But this sentence should win an award, my friend..."Here he is at the Halloween Parade next to a Whoopie Cushion!" I needed a laugh and you provided. XOXO!!

Why can't I ever think up anything as cool as an iPod costume???


Cute pics! Your candy is already GONE? Do you want some of ours? LOL!

Tumblewords: said...

I love the mad pink poodle! Well, AND the pirate, AND the i-Pod AND the - - These are terrific photos! What fun!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

All the costumes are creatively cool! How fun!

I think I stopped trick-or-treating when I hit the tween years...then us kids were relegated to staying home and handing out candy instead... :)

Happy WW! :)

angie said...

What fantastic costumes! THAT IPOD costume is so creative. These photos are really exceptional.

jay said...

I love Kaishon's costume, but then I would, wouldn't I? I just want to know where his Cap'n Jack braids are! LOL!

Also love the iPhone and the cross-dressers! Amazingly, I've seen more than one picture of cross dressing teens this Halloween!

Live.Love.Eat said...

Great costumes. And Kaishon is just looking so grown up!!!!!!!!

Jennifer Bowen said...

Kaishon looks awesome as a pirate! Love all the costumes! My kids stopped trick-or-treating by age 10... don't know why, but they just didn't feel like doing it anymore. Crazy, right? =)

Judi said...

That is one handsome pirate, IMHO.

Yaya said...

Oh my gosh! That iphone costume is priceless! Do you think I could post that on my blog??

SKELLER said...

yikes! how can he detest his costume?!? he's so utterly swash-bucklingly handsome in it!!!

Sarah said...

A bunch of cuties for sure! I just love the freckles on Kevins face...adorable!!

I thought I would stop by and say hello.
Kaishon has grown so much!
