Shiver me timbers!

Halloween was so much fun this year. Colton and Paxton LOVE the show Jake and the Never Land Pirates that is shown on the Disney channel. I thought it would be hilarious to dress them up as Captain Hook and Mr. Smee and lucky me, my dream came true! It was a battle to get Colton to be Captain Hook. He insisted on being Smee. However, once I brought home the hook from a costume store, he was sold on being Hook. We had a great time going to our ward trunk or treat the Friday before Halloween and again on Halloween night around our apartment complex. People really loved their costumes which made me feel good.

I found Colton's Captain Hook coat at Salvation Army for $10. It's a little girls pea coat from Target! It worked out PERFECTLY once I added a bunch of trim. I sewed some ruffles onto a white t-shirt he already had which he wore under his coat.
I found Paxton't hat and shirt at Salvation Army for 2 bucks total. We had the sweats already :)
Colton HATED this wig. I snapped this picture as fast as I could because I knew it wasn't staying on long.
This picture was taken immediately after the previous one...not happy about the wig!
Trick or Treating around our complex with the shark (their friend, Ethan).
Colton carried his bucket on his hook the whole night!
These brothers were SO HAPPY to be out past bed time AND getting candy!
We walked around our complex for about 45 minutes. These two were so tuckered out after that they slept between 11 and 12 hours that night. Such a bonus to the tired parents!
