"i'll get you pan!"

"if it's the last thing i do!!"  this is finn's quote of choice lately.  he says it in this throaty voice in such a way that massive amounts of drool come pouring and spraying from his mouth.  its fantastic.

so, obviously we have been on a bit of a peter pan kick around here.  the kids decided with the speier girls in august that they all wanted to be peter pan characters for halloween.  thus, there has been some serious planning and discussion going on for the past two months (and yet, i was still somehow finishing up costumes the night before...).   they all looked perfect (and the dads a little creepy) and were quite into their parts.  the older kids cared a bit more this year about hitting up as many houses as they could, which in turn caused lucy and audrey to care more.  finn was extremely eager to run up to the houses, pound on the door and yell "trick or treat" but then got about two pieces of candy and decided he was ready to go home and eat them.  it was another fabulous halloween.  our kids are so lucky to have such fun friends to enjoy it with.

*deep breath*  prepare yourself for a massive picture dump, but just think it could have been so much worse...  i have a lot more...




















finn stole miss allie's crocodile costume and ran around after captain hook ferociously clicking his tongue...



and then little bo peep stopped by looking for her lost sheep...




the end.

except for all the delicious food and drink...





and if i may request a brief description from christine on how she made her lovely appetizer as i have been craving it ever since...

Horray! I need to get pictures from you and post a few of my own as well. Jimmy still likes to talk about it and looked at these pictures for awhile and when we read his Peter Pan book, he likes to tell me who everyone dressed up as. He says, "Costumes again!" which means he wants me to ask him who everyone was.

PS- When he gets in front of my computer lately, he says, "I want to look at pictures... pictures of Aunt Emmy."

Eva says: "I like your costumes!" But she more than likes them, she a little obsessed with looking at them over and over. And she wants to tell you that "She was Susan and Felicity was Lucy." And "I really miss you." And "I want to see the costumes again...." Here we go...
