Follow The Yellow Brick Road

We're off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz.

We went with a theme this year. We figured this will most likely be the last year we can get away with choosing the girls costumes. I just know next year I am going to have to give into some awful Dora the Explorer outfit times two. So since we had a Halloween party to go to with the girls we made it a family affair.


Mommy as Dorothy

Daddy as the Tin Man

Addison as the Scarecrow


Charlotte as the Cowardly Lion

Ready to go out and get some candy!!My lil' scarecrowTrick or treat.And my lil' lion.

I really wish I would have got better pictures of the entire night but that seems to be a rare occurrence these days. You get the idea.
Lots of candy was received and lots of laughs were had.

Ohhh and by the way we won the costume contest at the party.

If they don't know you can get Dora costumes you might get lucky!

How cute you all looked - so fun! One year we did that with the twins and I was Scarlet and Billy was Rhett and the girls were little southern belles.

Have a good week - Kellan

How cute! Looking at your family picture makes us just grin thinking about how much fun we'll be having in the years to come with our twin girls!

So are awesome for dressing up. I'm boring:( And I might be in the Dora boat with you next year. They love her right now.

How fun! I bet the girls just loved this.

Before my sister and I had kids my family did this theme - we had a big family Halloween party every year and ours went as Wizard of Oz. We had the same as you, plus a witch and flying monkey! It was a blast.

I think next year I have to dress up. Vivian was wondering why I didn't! I should start planning now :)

Fab.u.lous! You look like one saucy Dorothy. I love it! The girls were truly always!

Brian and I were a pirate and his wench. After I had gotten all of the kids' costumes I wished Ihave made it a pirate theme.
