Ella and Jack coordinated their Halloween costumes this year, both sharing in the excitement of the impending release of the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens.  They, of course, hadn’t seen the new movie yet so they went old school for their costumes—Ella was Leia and Jack was Darth Vader.  Jonathan walked the kids around the neighborhood for trick-or-treating so he had to get in on the fun, too, with an albeit weak Obi-Wan Kenobi “costume”.  In our version, Darth and Old Ben settle their differences over some Kit-Kats.  No disturbances in the force on this particular night.

This was Olive’s first Halloween with us, so she had to get a new costume.  I don’t think her batwings survived the night, though—once she got a hold of one, it was all over.  She looked cute while it lasted!

Happy Halloween!
