If you know me at all, you know I love Halloween and especially having my family's costumes match. We've had themes for the last 5 years. Well, I failed this year. I actually would have been okay skipping Halloween all together, except my kids would have noticed. Since we were/are in our temporary housing I didn't have any of my sewing/craft supplies or decorations. We've also been so preoccupied buying a house that I really didn't get into the Halloween "mood." So... Brooke was a fairy, she was so excited to have fancy hair and she even got to wear a little make up. Tanner was a zombie- he thought it was awesome. Just a side note here- a few minutes before we were going to go trick or treating I was cutting up Tanner's zombie pants, while he was wearing them (smart, I know) and did manage to cut about 8 inches off of his shoe lace- oops! He's almost outgrown them anyways. My sister Katie had a Power Ranger's costume, so that is what Dallin was. She also had a bat costume, so Quentin was our little bat. The kids had a great time dressing up and going trick or treating, and didn't seem to mind the whole "no-theme (and last minute) Halloween." Next year my goal is to have all 6 of us dressed up- Aaron may take some convincing. We'll see how that goes...
|While I was doing Brooke's hair and make up, I did feel a little bit like one of the "Toddlers in Tiaras" mom. She just needed hair extensions and some fake teeth.|
|Tanner got quite into character.|
|Dallin was pretty excited to be a power ranger. The costume barely fit- if you could see him from behind- you might see a little bit of a wedgie. But it worked, we were excited we didn't have to go buy anything.|
|Our little bat baby. The boys thought it would have been really great if he could sleep hanging upside down.|
|Enjoying his siblings' loot. I did let him lick a sucker- he wasn't sure what he really thought about that.|
