So how cute do my little pirates look? They love watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates on Disney Channel, so being pirates was a pretty easy pick for costumes this year.
And don’t you love their awesome pirate ship? My friend Sylvia let us borrow it. Her husband built it for their boys last year, and they let us borrow it to put over our wagon for this year. We got a ton of comments on it as we were walking down the street. One guy even went in his house to get his camera so that he could take a picture of it!
We started out at our neighbors’ house where Lauren, who also babysits for me, was dressed as a gypsy. She went right along with our theme, so she went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood with us.
Charlotte thought that having Lauren come with us meant that Mommy was going bye bye. Charlotte wasn’t too keen on that idea, but once we started down the street, she was okay.
We ended back at the neighbors where Lauren’s boyfriend was helping hand out candy. We had a whole pirate crew!
The kids had a blast trick-or-treating! And of course they were very excited that I promised them each one piece of candy before getting ready for bed.
Now off to sift through my pirates’ loot…
