I know, I know, this is like really behind! But October was just crazy busy this year. On top of the normal Halloween fun times like a party, trick or treating, carving pumpkins, and zoo boo, we had a wedding. The groom was Adam's friends since middle school and he had the honor of being Best man. So there was tons of fun getting ready for that!
This year the kids did most of the pumpkin carving fun. They did need help cleaning out the pumpkin guts, but they designed them and did most of the cutting. They turned out fantastic!!!
post that I found on pinterest.com. She had on jeans under the tutu, the red turtleneck was also purchased from Goodwill, her Hello Kitty rain boots were just simply covered in a red fabric. The tutu was made out of a piece of elastic, blue tulle, and white felt for the stars. The cuffs and headband were made from a shiny gold fabric, and the stars were made of a sticky backed red foam. The "W" on the shirt was just a piece of yellow felt that I drew the symbol on and then stitched on the shirt with red thread. I think they both turned out great! L did get frustrated that most people either called him Harry Potter or just Superman. Oh well.
Pin the tie on Mr. Bones, and Jack O'lantern toss game. We also read some stories (look at the bottom of the post for links), and had a costume parade all through the library.
