The Coolest Transformers Ever!

Yes, I know that it has been over a week since Halloween. I usually post video clips that I take with my camera. Sadly, my camera is broken. I had to use the video camera, and I have finally figured it out!

I promise it is worth the wait!

You are about to see my boys as the coolest (and cutest) Transformers ever! (I suppose I am a little biased!)

Eight rolls of Duct Tape - $32
Headlights that really light up - $6
Having your kids think you're the coolest mom ever - PRICELESS

I estimate that it took 25 hours of blood, sweat and tears to complete both costumes. (Seriously, when I am using a box cutter, there is blood involved.)

So what are we going to be next year...?

Thursday night we went to the school for the Costume Carnival. The Transformers were a hit! The boys eventually got tired of transforming for everyone and posing for pictures, but they had a blast!

Here are a few other pictures of our Halloween fun.

We started off with trick-or-treating at dad's new office - Wal-Mart. Then we went to Sonic for the free hot dogs and soda. The kids enjoyed their hot dogs in the back of dad's truck.

Adeline had quite the sucker collection. She wanted them ALL! We tried to take them away for a way!

All four of my was NOT easy to get this picture!

My two beautiful fairies!

Abbott was such a ham! He really got into the part!

Trick-or-treating was so much fun! The boys got into "vehicle" mode while Anna knocked on the door. After they answered the door, the boys jumped up (transformed) and said "trick-or-treat!". It was a blast and everyone LOVED it!

What good looking Autobots!

I didn't have a pattern, but I got ideas online. It was a lot of trial and error.

Gymboree made the fairy costumes :)
