This is what my kids looked like when they left the house this morning. Great costumes, right? Kidding. The kids aren't allowed to wear Halloween costumes to school. It is disruptive to learning, apparently. Actually, I am sure it is disruptive to learning but, come on, it's only one day! They have still had lots of Halloween fun though. We went to the 'Trunk or Treat' at Church on Saturday and this afternoon we will be going to Michael's office for trick or treating and we'll make the rounds around the neighborhood tonight too.
Here they all are in their costumes at the Trunk or Treat:
Liam is a magician. I bought the hat at Party City. I made the cape and the bow tie and painted a wooden dowel for a wand.
Sutton is a fairy. Costume purchased at Costco. This is Sutton's first time wearing make-up. She looks way too grown up!
Ez as a fireman. Costume purchased at a second hand store for a few bucks.
Gemma is a cute little cow! Another Costco costume!
I kind of loved not sewing all the costumes myself this year. It was so easy and relaxed and everybody was happy!
