We made homemade costumes which was hard on time but super nice on our checkbook.
Hailey wanted to be a Rose. When she told me this I was stuck on how will I make a Rose costume. But after much brainstorming this is what she and I came up with. And best thing about it- it cost $0. It's an old green dress of mine cut to her size with the leaves stemming up like a stem. And the headband is just some extra silk roses that I had around the house hot glued onto a headband. Hailey loved it!
I found this design off of Family Fun.com. Mike made it within 2 hours on Saturday and Mason painted it. He got so many compliments from people while trick-or-treating. Cost -$0.
My attempt of a Halloween kid photo. What was I thinking....they wanted to start trick or treating.
Mason was so polite with his sisters. He would let them go first along with any other girls. Then after everyone was done he would take his turn. We're trying to teach him the difference between a man and a gentleman. It's been enlightening to know that the rare breed of gentlemen won't be extinct after all. We're just so pleased that he's applying those lessons and values.
But while walking in our neighborhood we seen the glowing lights from this pumpkin display from about 2 streets over. It was amazing!
