Oh, yeah...the kids dressed up, too [Nov. 1st, 2008|10:00 am]

Middle Daughter was Dr. Horrible (probably more about the adventure that was her costume later) and The Boy was a Clone Trooper.

Here she strikes a Horrible pose - by the way, the costume has gauntleted gloves, but she hadn't put them on yet - I say that to explain why the sleeves are so long/unfinished so you don't think I'm an even lazier seamstress than I already am.

The Boy is very excited about going to the party/going trick or treating.

 
We go down the street to my cousin's house. Have I mentioned that she really, really loves Halloween?


Even the food is scary!
 

My sister and I both threw together costumes at the last minute, and apparently great minds think alike.


Cinderella (in the dress the mice and birds made) and Minnie Mouse. I wish I had gotten a better picture of this dress, because it was really amazing.


Goodnight, everyone!

So you were both Spiderella?

Your cousin's party looked awesome! How cool.

Middle Daughter's costume was very original. :D The Boy was cute, as always!

I think we were just Generic Big Haired Scary Ladies. When someone asked me what I was, I said, Not aging gracefully.

The party was very cool - there was tons more food, the whole house is decorated, and there was a bubble machine and moonwalk set up in the backyard for the kids.

You and your kids rocked those costumes, you all look great!

And I absolutely adore that Minnie costume. That is way too cute.

Wow, that is one awesome looking Halloween party! The kind of party I'll tear out of a magazine, but will always be too lazy to do. You guys look great! And Logan looks almost exactly like Beckett. Gotta love those pre-made Star Wars costumes.

I am so glad I have at least one kid who will walk into a store, point at a costume, and say, I want to be that!

You guys do Halloween RIGHT! Love the costumes and the food - that Bride of Frankenstein is just too dang cute!

The kids are adorable (as always!) except for part where middle daugter looks so tall. When did that happen?

Ben went as a clone trooper, too. It must have been *the* boys costume this year even though I'd never heard of it until I had to go find the Clone Trooper gun on October 29th. :)

The school parade this year looked like a Clone Trooper training exercise.
