Beau's Self Portrait

I love this kid so much. His creativity never ceases to amaze me. He laughs easily and he lives life with intensity. As we approach 11 years with this boy I know he has taught me way more than I have taught him. I am so thankful for being blessed with him.

Smiling Zombie

He just can't help but smile. I don't know how I missed taking more pictures of him but he was on the go all night.

Halloween Happenings

 Anna was a vampire...a very pretty one I thought.
She did all her own costume gathering, and we had fun putting her make-up on.
This was the first time she wore mascara, and it will be a long time before we do it again,
it aged her instantly (which I didn't like) and it was hard to wash off (which she didn't like).
 Trick or treat, trick or treat.
That's all Owen is saying in hopes that I might give him a piece of candy from HIS bucket.
 Beau and Luke went for the Zombie look.
Beau did all his own makeup.
I guess I missed Luke in the individual shots, oops.
This may be the last year all four trick or treat together.
Beau really wanted to go with his friends,
but it wasn't planned enough in advance for his parents liking.
He took it all in stride and enjoyed getting as much candy as he could.

 Owen insisted on walking everywhere.
He was a tired boy hopped up on sugar by the end of the night.
 He was a spider, after several costume changes, but he was mistaken for a penguin several times.
