It's a bird, it's a plane...

No...it's the THE SUPER HERO FAMILY!!!
Meet Super Hero Dad and his Three Loyal Sidekicks...
And Super Hero Mom and her Little Apprentice!
We had such a fun Halloween this year!! Of course, my big boys have been anticipating this day for weeks now, but surprisingly enough, even the little ones were eager for it to arrive! 
Seriously though, who doesn't get excited about all that FREE candy-right?!?
 I had a ball making our costumes this Halloween. 
I really didn't set out to do homemade costumes this year, but after one look at the prices of a store bought one, my mind was made up!!
I think I made ALL six of our costumes for the price I would have paid for just one from the store;)
Each year, I do my best to come up with a theme that everyone can get excited about! I realize that as my kids get older, the less thrilled they will be with the whole "themed Halloween thing"--sigh, 
but I was delighted to be able to pull it off for at least one more year! 
It's tradition now, that my sweet sister-in-law and her family accompany us for trick-or-treating first and then dinner afterwards. Our good friends (and neighbors) the Robinson's were able to join us for the evening too.
Corban and his buddy Dr. Micah!
Sweet Leah and Super-Hud!
The streets in our neighborhood are literally just a sea of trick-or-treaters!
Kids run from door to door, and as they get their candy they quickly throw out a "Thank You" over their shoulder and run off to the next house. 
Sweet Hudson did his very best to keep up with the bigger kids, but (bless his heart)
his little legs just couldn't go quite as fast!
We had to empty his bag several times too because it got too heavy for him to carry;)
Sophie Lu on the other hand was a wild and crazy girl! 
She literally ran non-stop the ENTIRE time we were out! 
She paused only for a moment so I could snap this picture of her and her sweet friend, Elise, 
and then she was off running again;)
After over an hour of trick-or-treating fun, Hudson (and I) were cold and ready for a break. 
We headed home to get dinner going so it would be hot and ready when our hungry crew walked in the door!
And while I cooked, sweet Hudson got to sample a little bit of that yummy Halloween candy!
What a fun night!
Hope y'all had a Happy Halloween too!
