Our Costumes!!!

I have been bugged to get a post up for this year's Halloween costumes. Really, not too creative or exciting this year. The kids have realized they have minds of their own and mom's control is a thing of the past!
I decided not to try and fit exercise in my schedule today, because getting myself, Trent, and 5 kids in costumes is enough of a workout. And we have to do it all over again tonight.....
My Oakley. She is so funny. Whenever I asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween she would say, "Spiderman, Tinkerbell, and Superman...so much costumes!" So, here is our version of a TinkerSpiderSuperman Fairy!

I had to get a shot of the back so you could see the Superman cape. She had a Spiderman costume underneath the Tinkerbell one. Hilarious!

The boys have been really into the movie Speed Racer these days, so of course they had to be characters from the movie. Aiden is Speed Racer himself and Andrew is the good bad guy Racer X.

And I just found the cheapest costumes that would fit for the girls. They are supposed to be Bat Princesses. I think they are pretty darn cute. It was hard to get them to sit still for the photo shoot though...

And I just had to throw this picture in. Isn't that precious?

We went to Trent's work to do some Trick or Treating. Everyone there is so nice to have so much candy. The kids came home with bags full of yummy treats!

Trent and I dressed up as some Harley bikers. You may have to enlarge the picture to appreciate Trent's facial hair. I love it!!! Thanks to my parents for the leather chaps, Kimmy for some sweet earings, and to Ross for selling some rockin' T-shirts!
So, after taking my kids to 3 different places and to lunch I have settled everyone down for quiet time. I hope I can get myself motivated to do it all again in just 2 hours.

Oakley's costume is hilarious - I never thought you could pull something like that off, but she looks ADORABLE! I also love your's and Trent's costumes. You both look pretty tough!

I never thought I'd see the day wher Trent would be wearing jeans and you would have so much makup on. You guys really look good. Love it. Your kids are such cuties and I love that you went with Oakleys request.

Your costumes look great! I like your red biker t-shirt. I would seriously wear that normally, though. I think it's cute.

Your kids are the cutest things!!
You look HOT!! Love the biker costumes, great idea.
Do you dress up the dogs too?
I can't imagine having the energy to want to after dressing up 5 kiddies.
