As many of you know, halloween is one of my favorite holidays. The costumes the kids chose this year, may not have been my favorite, but still lots of love went into making them. And then halloween just didn't happen. Overshadowed by a little thing called Hurricane Sandy.
First I was stuck in Houston after Quilt Market for the storm and some of the aftermath. Couldn't get back until late Halloween night and there was no trick-or-treating. We went without power for 10 days and went to a hotel and then family's to keep warm. There were some rescheduled Halloween activities, but we couldn't make any. :(
The good news is the kids' school had a Halloween party the friday before, so they did can a chance to wear their costumes at least once. And I took pictures before I left.
Here she is happy:
Theo's choice was no surprise. He's crazy for Angry Birds. I don't really get it. It's cute and all, but how does it have that much appeal? It's just everywhere! And from the first time he tried it, he was hooked.
His costume was a hoot because he loved bouncing around and bumping into things in his own protective pillow. I knew if was going to be hot and unwieldy at the party so he had a t-shirt underneath for when he had to take it off.
Of course he changed his mind about which color he wanted to be after I bought all the materials... but he had to stick with the classic red.
Hope you Halloweens were more enjoyable and frankly safer than ours here in NJ. And have a great Thanksgiving!
