A world of pure imagination
Halloween 2013 will go down in our family history as the first year that all four of us really participated.
Little C turned 18 months just a few days before, and she got to trick-or-treat for the first time.
D was a farmer, of course. This boy is obsessed with all things farm. (This is him all dressed up for his preschool party)
Little C (our Oompa Loompa) had her 18-month needles that morning (yes, I felt like a bad mom for scheduling them on a holiday!) but she was a total pro. She even thanked the doctor over and over after it was done. The manners on that one! 🙂
We made a few adjustments to her costume to keep her warm trick-or-treating, as its been -1C lately. (Not sure what that is for my lovely American readers — super cold?)
Her green hairspray was the most epic part of her costume. Everyone kept exclaiming over it.
Just like last year, we trick-or-treated with our next door neighbours. So much more fun to be out with friends, rather than trekking around alone. It was great!
Enjoying their delicious rewards.
Yes, I was an Oompa Loompa, too. I made our costumes in a single naptime. Super easy.
*** (Mine is a cheap brown T-shirt from Walmart with sewed-on trim that I made, and hugely unflattering white overalls that I made from white fabric. C’s is actually a hand-me-down romper that I sewed straps into, and a brown tee that I sewed trim onto) ***
Me and mah man! He had to work most of Halloween, but we were able to grab a few quick shots together. I made his Wonka bar costume from a few sheets of Dollarama Bristol board.
I love Halloween, mostly because I love putting together costumes. I wish D had been on board with our Willy Wonka theme, but I appreciate that he’s old enough to choose his own costume now (ahem, however unexciting it may be).
Now I’m already thinking of next years costumes. I think Smurfs would be fun. Blue makeup hollaaaaaa!
