A Star Wars Halloween

Jacob’s Star Wars obsession has rubbed off on the rest of us.  So much so, that all three kids went as Star Wars characters for Halloween. 

Meet Luke Skywalker, Yoda, and Princess Leia…

Friday night , two days before Halloween, our local village center had trick-or-treating.  All the stores have someone sit outside their doors and pass out candy to all the kids.  It’s an easy, safe way for our family to trick-or-treat, and this is the 3rd year we have been.

We enjoyed a little Freebirds before heading to the village center.

 

Our street always has a Halloween block party, and this year was no exception.  Our street has cul-de-sacs on both ends and you enter from a small street that tees into it.  We all gather where the tee is and pass out candy while we grill and eat other side dishes that each family brings.  It’s nice for us to sit outside all together, and it’s one stop shopping for the trick-or-treaters.  Sounds like a win-win situation to me!

On Saturday between the Friday evening trick-or-treating and the Sunday block party, we attended our local Catholic homeschool group’s annual All Saints’ Party.  But I’ll leave that for another post…
