A Lion, Princess Leia, and Luke Skywalker

Our first order of Halloween business was getting our annual photo on the bench outside of Embers downtown.

Halloween 2011. Halloween is getting more exciting for the kids. Rhett loved dressing up as his hero and wielding his light saber, Mezmur loved getting candy and squealed every time I said, "Yes, there will be more candy at the next desk/house," and Mavis was the third little lion in the Lapour family and possibly the cutest.

First there was a short walk in the city. Two friendly street people gave the kids candy.

Mavis posed happily.

There were a few battles to be had. First it was Luke against Princess Leia.

Next it was Luke against Darth.

Then it was Luke against Luke...hmmmm...a 7th Star Wars Episode

Princess Leia and her wand.

We had a fun party with neighbors at our house and then we were off for more trick-or-treating.

Here is Mezmur checking out her loot.

Tonight, Rhett sold his candy to us for 10 cents each. It was tough for him to sort through his candy, but now we owe him $8.80. 100% worth it to me, because the talking, fighting, and negotiating about candy could drive me crazy.

Great idea having him sell it to you. That is awesome!

awesome costumes - that "lion" is edible!! i like the idea of selling the candy to the parents. we do something similar...the switch witch. the kids left a bucket of candy on the back deck with a note to the switch witch. in return the switch witch leaves a small toy in exchange for the candy. e still believes in it and i love that.

Great costumes and looked like fun for all. I also think the candy selling is a great idea, the Switch Witch is not too bad also. . . Can't wait to see you all TONIGHT!!
