We have a couple of Russell's cousins and their families who are in our ward and that we love to hang out with. I had the idea this year to have all of us dress from the 50s for Halloween. All the girls wore poodle skirts and all the guys were greasers. I had not dressed up for Halloween in I think 11 years and I had SO much fun. We went to our church "trunk-or-treat" the day before Halloween where all the kids go from car to car to trick or treat. Here is our family all dressed up.
And the girls giving some attitude

Here are the 3 little girls (Madylin, Riley, and Morgan)
Best picture I go of my 3. Nathan would NOT hold still
What made the night really fun was that we decorated the truck with a diner theme and the 3 of us mommies served root beer floats to the trick-or-treaters. We spent several hours the night before on this juke box that hardly got noticed (but hey- the 3 of us girls had a ball making it with lots of good-natured criticism, sarcasm, and laughs into the wee hours of the night) and we played a cd through the car of 50s music that I put together with lots of great songs like Yakety Yak and Hound Dog, and Rockin' Robin to a name a few. We were singing along while scooping ice cream and having a ball even though we were too busy to even look up at to who we were serving.
Here are the 3 ladies that put it together with our precious juke box.
We changed the names of the songs on the box to incorporate our kids' names.

Wake Up Little Mady

And here's the whole gang with our ribbon we won for our "trunk." Time to start planning for next year!
