Happy Halloween from the Cross Family!

I just wanted to say Happy Halloween from our family to yours. I know y’all are having a blast because my Facebook and Instagram news feeds are blowing up with photos of kids in costumes – nothing better than that! We went to Kelsey’s school last night for a “Pumpkin Walk” and before we left, we snapped a few photos of our first Halloween as a party of five!

I put Nolan in a bat hat and a ‘peek a boo’ shirt. The coolest part? I had no idea this was a glow-in-the-dark onesie until the sun set and he started the glow.

“Everyone make a silly face!” Well, except you, Nolan, because you’re a baby. And you too, Colton, because you’re stuck inside of a mask. PS – Do you see me pushing the remote on my camera? I was too focused on holding Nolan and supporting Kelsey that I totally didn’t hide that well at all. Oopsy.

When Kelsey came home and said she wanted to be Maleficent for Halloween, I was shocked. I thought for sure she would want to be Elsa or something super girlie. Nope. She even said, “Mom, can you make a bird and put it on my shoulder?” She had this in her head and I’m so happy we were able to find a Maleficent kids costume to make it work. Aaaaand she’s never allowed to put on makeup again because she looks like she’s 16. I’m not ready for that.

Happy Halloween, friends!
