Thankfully the rain held out for trick or treating and only lightly sprinkled. But the wind...oh the wind...it was cold!!!
We didn't even get to decorating pumpkins until Saturday afternoon.
Yes...on Halloween! I didn't even get mine carved :(
I'm thinking I might carve out a Thanksgiving pumpkin. Maybe leaves or something??
For my son's Hatbox Ghost costume we got the gloves at the Halloween store, coat was from a thrift shop, hat was from his Mad Hatter costume a few years back, the hatbox was a paper mache box from Hobby Lobby that we painted & added a handle, and the walking stick we already had.
I also made Addie's Sally costume. It was a little tricky and I goofed in a few spots (that thankfully aren't noticeable!) but I was so tickled to see how cute she looked in it!! The sleeves are actually tights that I cut & added stitches to. And yes, I sewed all of those stitches on her dress!
By the way, liquid eyeliner (while expensive) is perfect for drawing fine lines like Sally's stitches!!
And you can't have Sally without Jack ;)
I just love when Halloween falls on a weekend! So much less stress about getting things done since the kids are home from school.
And now that Halloween is over I'm going to pop in a Christmas movie & start planning for Thanksgiving (and Christmas of course!).
