Did you have a spooky night last night with the ghosts and goblins? Ours was fun and adventure-filled!
Gray was a clown (because his only addition to the costume brainstorming was that he wanted a balloon):
(Have you ever seen a more mischievous clown? I can just see the little wheels turning in his head…)
Ben was a dragon. Sadly this costume is the emergency back-up dragon costume, instead of the mommy-sewn, specifically blue and silver, both with horns and wings costume that is still in 8 bazillion pieces on my sewing table. Ben has been saying for over a month that he wanted to be Fire Drake, who is the main dragon character in a book he recently read. Unfortunately, because of our many ridiculous plans already in place for the month of October, I put off going to the fabric store to create this costume until the Wednesday before Halloween. By 8:30 PM Monday I had been working on the thing for 6 hours straight and the tail spikes were giving me utter fits. I could tell that even if I sewed through the night and into the next day, it wouldn’t have been done in time for his party at 3 PM. BAD MOM. Thus, we pulled out the emergency back-up costume (which belongs to Ben’s Uncle Sean).
But Ben had fun and I still do plan on finishing Fire Drake (might as well, huh?).
Sweet Catalina is the third Munchkin in these pictures (Gray’s birthday twin). She’s a turtle (and practically a head taller than Gray!).
I like to think in this photo that they’re playing Rock Paper Scissors to see who gets to torture her little sister, Ava, next:
