We decided to pump up the volume a bit on Reed's costume--we added a sweet 'stache and the parrot on his shoulder.
He was so not going to stand still for a picture, though:
I saw a fantastic idea on Pinterest to decorate your car trunk to look like a giant monster mouth. I wasn't planning on doing it, but Ryan thought it would be fun--so we went for it:
I thought it looked gerat, and it was quite popular at the party:
(For whatever reason, he couldn't keep the swords out of his mouth.)
As for the party itself, we had a lot of fun. We started with a dinner, then there was a costume parade and games for the kids. We ended with--of course--the Trunk or Treat. Reed filled almost his entire bucket with candy. We had a fun night, and it was a great way to get Reed pumped up for Halloween!
(Oh, and, by the way--Asher was there, just not pictured. He ate a ton of food at dinner, then helped Ryan pass out candy and made all the young women swoon over his cuteness.)
