Let’s just say I’ve been dreaming about these Luke and Leia costumes pretty much since I found out I was having boy/girl twins.
I came up with Klane’s and my costume ideas a month or so before Halloween. I spent weeks getting everything together and it all turned out even better than I always dreamed. We went to the ward Halloween party on Saturday and then on Monday (Halloween) we took the kids trick or treating around Mount Morris Park. We stopped at 56 West and saw Ila and the gang, which was fun. We didn’t take the stroller and let the kids walk the whole way. They loved it and ran everywhere, especially Nora. (Ben is a little slower because he likes to observe everything along the way.) They turned heads and got the best reactions from people, which was fun. Nora got a full sized Reeces at the first house and literally did not let it go the rest of the night until we got home, at which point she handed it to me and asked me to open it, and then ate a reeces cup and was SO happy. Hahaha. It was amazing.
When we got home we had Dinner in a Pumpkin waiting for us. A tradition I picked up from my BFF Lindsay Wolthuis. It made me homesick for her but she and I texted each other pictures of our pumpkins at exactly the same moment, which was fun.
Overall it was just the best!
