Last-Minute Halloween

This was sort of a last-minute holiday. Mom got the police and doctor uniforms at a thrift store in Colorado. The beard came from there too. They weren't necessarily for Halloween; dressing up is always fun.
The church we have been going to was planning to spend Halloween packing Christmas boxes for less fortunate kids, so we decided to join them. 
We also took advantage of the fact that the church next door hosted a trunk-or-treat with games and prizes.
 We walked over with our new friends--who also happen to have three boys--and had a blast.
It helped that Mom didn't stress over the details that have always represented Halloween to us, like accessories for the costumes or pumpkin carving. We just rolled with it and it turned out great.
