Halloween was a success! We managed to score just as much candy as we bought, plus we still have 3 bags of candy from our giveaway stash, so we ended up ahead. By the end of the year, if I haven’t gained 20 pounds, it will be a miracle.
Our Adventure Time costumes turned out pretty awesome given that I started on them late Sunday afternoon. Yes, it was just a tad bit last minute, but it all worked out, and my kids didn’t have to dress like hobos because Mom dropped the ball. I have to say that these are my favorite Halloween costumes to date.
Finn was Finn the Human Boy
Audrie went as Princess Bubblegum, though not in her normal outfit. PB usually wears a long, pink princess dress, which is not Audrie’s cup o’ tea. Instead, Audrie wore an outfit from a particular episode in which PB donned a shirt with a graphic print of her pet, Lady Rainicorn.
Jonathan was Jake the Dog
And I was Marceline the Vampire Queen
We went trick or treating with the neighbors and had a blast watching the kids run from door to door.
Finn put his backpack to good use as his candy bag. He eventually got tired of asking one of us to help him put his candy in the backpack, so he started turning his back to every candy giver to let them drop it in.
At the end of the night, after hitting two different loops, we were pretty beat. So we called it a night, but not before getting a family pic.
I think this is going on our Christmas cards.
