Portia was an 1980's exercise queen (think Olivia Newton John and Richard Simmons combined). She loved getting her make up on (Props to Sara Matthews for finding this sweet outfit).
Palmer was a clown, big shoes and all. He kept tripping over his shoes and taking off his wig at both the parties we went to before Halloween. But for showtime, he was pumped to put on his costume! He also loved getting his makeup on, though he quickly wiped it off.
Palmer and Portia saying, "Pumpkins!!!!" (with Isaac wondering why everyone looks so weird)In action. Palmer just wanted a lollipop from everyone and was satisfied once he got one. He could care less about collecting as much as possible. Portia, on the other hand, wholeheartedly embraced the idea of grab-n-go. She'd yell "trick or treat!" and, instead of waiting for them to put a candy in her bag, would grab a handful, shove it in her bag and yell "Happy Halloween!!" while walking away. Sometimes we got a thank-you in there, too. (Thanks Ben for the candy, just in case my kids forgot to say it, I thought I would say it because I'm the one eating the candy!).
