Trick or Treat

Saturday night we went to my Mom's so the kids could go trick or treating. This was the easiest year I have had on costumes:)

Every year (up until this year) I have made the kids their costumes. There have been the ladybug, raggedy ann, a bear, a firefighter, a ghoul, a witch, a cheerleader, a flower fairy, a devil, a football player, a victorian girl, numerous princesses.....

But this year, Tyler wanted to be a football player. With REAL football pants and a REAL jersey. And Jessie wanted to be a REAL huskies cheerleader.

Fortunately for me, the sporting goods store in Ashland had a pair of white football pants in Tyler's size on the clearance rack, and an honest-to-goodness husky cheerleader outfit for Jessie on the clearance rack.

I did have a few hard moments upon realizing that I didn't have to make anything for halloween, then rejoiced because I was not up at 1:00 in the morning finishing costumes.....
Here's to hoping everyone had a good Halloween!

Their costumes look great! It would be wonderful to be able to make my kids costumes, I really should learn how to sew better. Your house looks spooky!

I love how the house looks; it's soo cute!

This year I didn't have time for costumes so we used costumes from 2 years ago.

Well done for getting out of costume making.
We don't do trick or treat so much over here so I've never had to make Gem a costume. She used to save that for all the school plays at Christmas

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Cute custumes and the house looks so nice decorated with all the spiders and spiderwebs. This reminded me of I like to make another Spiderweb funny. Have a great day!
