Halloween Recap

The weather was cold (42 degrees!) for trick or treating but we made it through 3 whole blocks before going back to our house for a pizza party.

Pre-trick or treating excitement in the car
Mae's serious look was her way of interpreting her costume. She thinks that mummies need to be emotionless.
Our little lion friend was happy to be wearing a costume with a warm hood!

We finished the night by lighting all of the glow sticks we had in the house. (Thanks to blog reader Becky for the glow sticks!)
Hope you all had a great Halloween!

*Mae's mummy costume was made with off white burlap cut into strips, then sewn together into a big piece of fabric then sewn into pants and a top. (She wore cream colored long underwear underneath the burlap mummy costume.) Her head covering was a polar fleece neck warmer that we sacrificed by cutting a hole in it for her face.

*Binny's red crayon costume was made with red and black felt... and lots of glue. The hat was just a cheap cardboard Happy Birthday hat covered in red felt.

Mae is hilarious with that look! Glad y'all had fun.

The girls look great. You are pretty crafty.

That third photo is priceless. The angst caused by posing for pictures when there is candy to be begged for.

Riot Kitty said...

Those are so adorable! The lion looked a little pouty though :)

Excellent costumes and I'm glad everyone had such a good time. :)

You are very talented.

OMG, that mummy costume is INCREDIBLE! My daughter was a crayon (red, also) many years ago. Your photos bring back beautiful memories.

Aliceson, you are AMAZING. My oldest desperately wanted to be a mummy last year and the only idea I could come up with for a costume involved paper towels and scotch tape.

The kids look GREAT and like they had SO much fun!!!

Okay, you come do my costumes next year! Sooo cute! You are one super creative woman. I guess I was when the kids were younger. Now I feel I'm sort of losing it.
