This year for Halloween, Axel wanted to be Thomas the Train and was completely content with a cute little $9 costume. Lucas had bigger visions and after some tough decisions he was set on being an Alien Commander from Legos Alien Conquest. We started making his costume a month ago and were able to maximise them with numerous Halloween focused activites.
Here is the Lego character...

#3. A week ago, our friends Jodie & Steve, invited us to their church Trunk or Treat Chili Cook Off. It was perfect for the boys and they loved every minute. It got everyone in the Halloween spirit and gave Axel an idea of what was in store down the road.
|We even saw Lucas' Science & Math teacher! :)|
|Ms. Molly rockin' her flight suit with red shoes. Love this girl!|
|William (Mario) and Dominic (Luigi)|
|Lucas showing the judges his awesome costume!|
|Axel would not let us go home without riding on the haunted train!|
|Everyone getting name tags.|
|Four different stations filled with fun activities.|
|Decorating goodie bags.|
|Pumpkin craving. Each group member got to pick out an eye or nose or mouth to make their pumpkin perfect. Mr. Scott did the carving and they were all judged at the end of the party! I'm pretty sure it was a four way tie!|
