As we were all trying to come up with what our family costume would be this year Mike had the great idea to buy something that we could wear throughout the year. We settled on a New Jersey mob family all dressed in Adidas track suits. Mike and I bought big gold chain necklaces with a big letter W on them for us and the girls wore black beanie caps. For Madeline, we found her the cutest little track suit and gave her a plastic bat. We had a great time showing up for our ward trunk or treat. Mike was totally in character, accent and all. The trunk or treat was probably the lamest one we have ever been to, but the kids still had fun getting candy. We had to do it inside since it was so cold outside. On actual Halloween night, Abby went with her friends and dressed up as a 20’s girl. Each of her friends dressed from one of the eras. Emma went with her friends and dressed up as the red M&M. Her other friends were different colored M&Ms. Peter manned the house for a bit while Mike and I took Madeline out trick or treating. We only went down 2 streets since it was freezing outside. We ended up dressing her up in a 50's poodle skirt since it seemed more kid appropriate. She had so much fun this year knocking on doors to get candy. There were a few blow up props in our neighbors' yard that scared her, but she was definitely braver this year.
