Trick or Treat

Yes, I realize it's November 18 and these are a little late to the Halloween season. But since we were traveling home from Dallas on Halloween, the kids didn't get to dress up or trick or treat. Now to be honest, they rarely actually trick or treat anyway since we don't exactly live in a neighborhood, but we do usually let them get dressed up and at least take them to Gram and Gramp's house.

When Becky arrived the weekend after Halloween, she came all stocked up with Halloween candy and a big idea to let the kids trick or treat at our house using both the front and back doors. We spent a frantic 10 minutes as she raced back and forth between the doors (she was changing hats; I was just taking pictures).

I kept asking him why he was holding his hand like that, and he informed that he's holding the force. Okey dokey.

Yes, that would be Becky in Camden's old Darth Vader costume. Not to be confused with the Darth Vader costume he has this year.

Pretty sure Becky and I laughed as much as the kids since we both found it kind of hysterical to run back and forth between doors.

And why not follow up Halloween pictures with a scrap page using last year's Christmas picture?

Please forgive my wife for her lack of Star Wars knowledge. Camden was "using the force" not "holding the force." I'm just proud that she knew he was Darth Vader!
