Costumes were a melting pot of Target, Hobby Lobby, and Wal-Mart. I love that they can continue to wear their new leotards to ballet this winter!
It was a busy morning of kindergarten costume parades and preschool snack parties:
Finally, the big moment came around. Costumes were back on, cousins arrived, and the wagon was cleaned off for photo opps and neighborhood travel.
And just as quickly, it was over. Home to survey the plunder...
It was so much fun to see the babies jostling around in the wagon, all bundled up with a blanket. My niece (dressed as a Fraulein) kept her Trick or Treat bag clutched in her tiny fist the whole time. We stopped at one house with a smoke machine and the girls started yelling "Stop, drop, and roll!" I guess they really paid attention to Fire Safety at school last week.
I let the girls choose three pieces of candy each when we got home (Michaela Byrd wisely choose candy that came in multiples), and T and I siphoned off some from our own ToT bowl...turns out we had some leftovers.
I can't believe it is November already. I have some serious Christmas shopping to do, but some seriously cute projects to share with you all...whenever I find the time to blog them!
What happened in your neighborhood last night? Any funny Halloween stories?
