Nothing like December to post about Halloween. But I never got around to it, and I rely heavily on the blog to remind me of what we did throughout the year for our photo books.
Ida had decided on Cinderella so we picked out fabric and made her a Cinderella dress. Turns out being the Fairy Godmother means you work some long hours but Ida was in heaven when she woke up from her nap and got to "finally" put it on. (I think she expected me to pull it out of the pattern bag or something.)
Asa decided on Bumblebee, which was wonderful because he was extremely happy about his costume and we only had to pull it out of a bag!
And Sofie still has no say over what she is, so she was our little sushi roll. Super cute and easy to do (and the big kids enjoyed pretending to eat her.)
The kids went to the Fall Carnival put on by the NSA students - and had a blast. And then on Halloween, our wonderful neighbor came over with two huge buckets full of candy for Asa and Ida before trick or treating even began! A trip downtown with Amara and Clark in the afternoon topped off the candy haul. Then back to our house for our traditional mummy dogs and opening the door for trick or treaters. So much fun (and yes, we still have lots of candy sitting in the buckets still).
