Clara enjoyed her first Halloween!
As I previously mentioned, I made Grace's costume this year! She told me what she wanted to be, and I thought that sounded easy enough. After it is all said and done, If I had paid myself $5 an hour, plus the money for the materials I bought, I could have bought the nicest Pottery Barn costume available. But I thought it would be fun to make one, and\even though it was more effort than I thought it would be, I'm still glad I did it.
Grace was a dinosaur! I'm sure you're not surprised, since she is really into dinosaurs right now.
I was pretty pleased how it turned out. I put together several internet tutorials to come up with it. Thank goodness for the internet!
We had fun playing outside in the costumes for a little bit.
Avery came over and they had a great time together, as always! Avery was Nemo the fish. We trick or treated at two neighbors' houses. Grace ate some candy and had a tremendous sugar high and crash. I'm sure Avery's presence added to the hyper activity!
I was a pirate, as always! Clara missed most of it, even the trick or treating, but she was up long enough to take some pictures.
It was a fun Halloween! When I was putting Grace to bed, she kept asking for "more Halloween" as I was leaving the room. She didn't wear her costume for very long before ripping it off, but hopefully it created a memory and anticipation for more fun next year!
