Meet The Nat Pack!

The Nat Pack: The super fashionable, super mod, super hip family consisting of Nat, Pete, Jakob, Brock, Troy, and Ivy. Like The Rat Pack, only younger, cuter, and not as rich or famous.

Everyone BUT the Wizard

Yesterday was our ward's Halloween party. Arin and I thought up having our kids dress as the different characters from "The Wizard of Oz" , like, two months ago. It turned out cute, if I do say so myself!

They had games, and face painting, and a beanbag toss, and donuts with hot cocoa there, and a whole lot more that we didn't get around to doing with the kids. It was way fun.

Here's the group of us, (from left to right, bottom to top): Jakob as Tin Man, Jayce as Flying Monkey, Ila as Glinda the Good Witch, Brock as Toto, Troy as Scarecrow, Stacy as Dorothy, Jaren as 1/2 of the Lollipop Guild, Arin as the Wicked Witch of the West, Nat as the Yellow Brick Road, Pete as the other 1/2 of the Lollipop Guild, and Ivy as the Lion. (Whew!)

Here are some more groupings of all of us. I'm sure Arin will have more pictures when she blogs about this ( pressure, Arin!)

Jakob adored his costume!

Ivy giving an appropriate face for the Lion:

So sleepy!

We represent the Lollipop Guild... (What good sports! Pete was like, "Jaren had better be dressed up, too, or I'm going home.")

The scared Scarecrow

And Toto, too.

Jakob, showing that his true obsession hasn't faded:
Halloween rocks with little kids!

Hoe Fun! We were going to have all the kids in Star Warz theme costumes. But Shawn and Ryan saw IornMan and Ryan just may be him instead of being StarWarz. (Hopefully the 40 dollor costume will fit him next year or at least Soren will be able to wear it in 4 years).

Such darling kiddos if I do say so myself. I will post my pics too as soon as I figure out how to get them off the camera. It may be hubby to the rescue!

B, Nice Pants. It take courage to go out dressed like that. I Dig the hair do. Way to be in character.

Those costumes are so stinkin' creative! You did a really good job. And I love that you are the yellow brick road. It reminds me of that girl who played "wall" in your play in high school. That's what her costume was like. So funny.
