Who loves costumes? We do!!!!!!

Halloween this year was bitter sweet.  Sa-weet because these Swanson's will dress up anytime anywhere, and Halloween is the one day of the year we can frolic in our love for costumes.  Bitter because Jeff is back in the States working so we were a pig short for our 3 little pigs and the big bad wolf costumes!  Oh and we miss him too :)  It made most sense for Jeff to be the big bad wolf and me, G, and M to be the 3 little pigs...but G was not having it, so Jeff got bumped and joined the pigs...that was until he left for the US for work :(  Don't worry though, we recruited another pig and alas Halloween was saved!!  Our little buddy Micah stepped in and saved the day for the Swanson's!  Thanks for piggin it up with us Micah!!  G was still not super excited about being the big bad wolf so we softened the blow by saying he was a skate boarding werewolf...say what you will G, but we all know you were indeed the big bad wolf...who skate boards to all the 3 little pigs houses :)

First we trick or treated in our neighborhood on Wednesday night...super fun!  Just the kiddos dressed up for this one, I chased the boys around the neighborhood in the stroller trying to keep up as they ran from house to house :)

Don't worry this wolf loves that baby pig :)
I didn't even notice his mask, I was looking at his cute curls!


These boys might have made 2 loops around the neighborhood...cheaters!
On Thursday night the church had a fun festival...and boy was it fun :)  We were there from about 4:30-8, and G came home with more candy :/  There was tons of games, super fun people, and costumes...what more could you ask for??  

The cupcake ladies...I wanted to get in good with them :)

Sweet smile

The 3 little pigs!!

The 3 little pigs, and the big bad skateboarding wolf!

Notice that tiny curly pig tail...omg adorable!

Betty and April rocked the Bean Bag Toss!

Just an ice cream cone, a pumpkin, and a runner hanging out...normal day in Jaco

Cat napping so she can keep going!

Little smushed face :)

"HOLY COW" Emily that is a great costume!

Nice thumbs up...but it doesn't hide the fact your not in costume!
Beautiful smiles ladies...but they also don't hide the fact you are not dressed in costumes...shape up!!!
Cutest caveman daisy dukes I have ever seen! 

Go ahead and say it, I know your thinking...Mrs. Piggy!!!

Even Endermen need sunglasses in Jaco :)

So many kids, so much candy, I'm sure so many meltdowns as the night went on!

The girl is a party animal...literally!

My sweet little piglet, and wolfster :)
Missing our big pig :(

Mae makes friends wherever she goes!

On Halloween night we went golf cart trick or treating in Los Suenos.  Mae had a Minnie Mouse costume because at first G wasn't sold on being the 3 little pigs and the big bad wolf, so she had an extra costume.  It was so adorable, why not wear it also???  In fact why don't I just dye my support hose (I had to wear some after getting my gall bladder surgery) yellow, raid my closet, make some lame sauce felt duck feet, find a white boa and just be Daisy Duck with my little Minnie Mouse...why the heck not???   It was really fun but by the end of the night, we were all so exhausted!  Besides missing Jeff the Swanson's had a great Halloween and as always throughly enjoyed dressing up in costumes!!! 

BamBam and his club!

It was BamBam's first time to trick or treat, and by the end of the night he was a pro!

The big kids!


Daisy duck and Minnie Mouse!

Minnie pooped out from dressing up 3 nights in a row!!  She was a trooper!

Do any kids really keep there mask on once they start trick or treating?

Zack and Jacob

Look at those homemade duck feet over the sandals!   
Mae's head was to big so I had to cut the side of the hat to get it on :)

Only time they all had their mask on :)

Cheek kissing :)

Mae slobbered all over poor Carter's was a love slobber :)

Cutest mouse tail I have every seen!

You are too stinkin cute Miss Minnie!

Some buddies from school!

Just missing Donald Duck

I only have a few short years to match Halloween costumes with Mae, I better enjoy it :)

Daughter mouse tails, and mommy tail feathers...we are quite the pair :)

And that is the end of a very a fun Halloween year!
