Ogres Are Like Onions...

This year we were the Shrek family for Halloween. Ace was Shrek, I was Princess Fiona, Easton was Donkey, and Ty was one of the baby ogres. We had a fun night at the trunk or treat and even though Easton doesn't look like it, he was happy about the huge amount of candy he got.

So here we are with a little comparison to the real thing...

Please ignore the weird pictures...it was all I could find!

I have always loved to dress up on Halloween, but the one thing I don't like is dressing up with face paint...I don't like the mess and stuff like that on my face. I tried to get out of painting my face, but Ace said that if he had to paint I had to too! I was worried that it wasn't going to come off because I made it with a whole lot of green food coloring and we would be going to church today looking like ogres, but never fear it all came off :)
If you notice Ace has no ears on in some pictures he thought it would be a good idea to hot glue the ears to his head...I tried to explain to him that hot glue is, well, hot and would burn him...needless to say, he did it any way and now has two lovely burn marks behind his ears to remember this night by...

"I'm a 'yogurt'!" as Easton says.

I don't know about you, but I think this is one cute little ogre!
