Halloween 2012

I hope you had a wonderful Halloween!  Despite some sickies, (more on that later), we had a wonderful day!  I just love that my parents come every year to celebrate with us.  They haven’t missed a Halloween since Allison’s first!

I may not be able to sew costumes, but at least I can handle Halloween bags!  I did the bat and the candy corn a few years back for Allison and Natalie.  (I even hand made their bags!)  I found some black bags for $1 at Michael’s and decided they were close enough to the original bags, so I just added the owl and spider.  (Thanks for your help, mom!)

Funny thing… we were at Target, and Allison insisted I buy orange jello to complete our traditional Halloween dinner.  I said, “But you don’t even like orange jello!”  “It’s a tradition,” she responded! Ha!  And, it turns out she does like it after all.  Good thing, because last year I had to throw it all away!

When it comes to costumes, I am so thankful my girls are “scrappy.”  Once again this year, they just dug through the dress-up pile to come up with a costume.  I wish you could have heard them tapping through the streets!  A sweet friend gave me this dragon -er- dinosaur for Malachi.  Try as I might, I couldn’t get a decent picture of him in it!

For the first time ever, the big girls actually came home and took inventory of their stash… they even did some trading.  Oh, how I remember those days!  Good times!  Anyone need any candy?
