Halloween came fast this year! It felt like school started, we blinked, and it was October 31st! This Halloween was a little more stressful this year with our kill-joy, I mean, our toddler...Lillie. She makes everything miserable...I mean, more challenging. ;-p She went as a Scarecrow and the picture below shows you just how much fun it was to get her dressed up...to say she hated it would be the understatement of the year!!! The candy however has been a big hit with her - go figure.
This was the finished product...which she only wore for about .2 seconds. ;-)
Look at that cute face! Seriously, thank the Lord she's cute because oftentimes it's that adorable smile that saves her hiney!
On the night of the Costume Party, I went as "The Life of the Party"! ;-)
Rauly was "Lil' Miss Smarty Pants" at the Costume Party, and a Barbie Fairy on Halloween night.
I made Shep a "Life of the Party" costume to match mine (which he begrudgingly wore to the costume party). He asked me when I gave him his costume why our family had to wear all of the weird costumes! (Both he and I were wearing a cereal box, and Rauly had smarties glued to her pants, while Chad was wearing a huge whoopie cushion. Bahahahaa!!!! When we got to the party that night, he told everyone "my mom made me wear a cereal box". I still chuckle when I think about it! :-) One day hopefully he'll appreciate his mom's creativity!
Shep was Darth Vader
I told Chad to get his costume on, but he waited and waited (something about the huge whoopie cushion costume being horribly hot and uncomfortable??), so I wound up not getting a picture of him. Stink!
