It took Poe a while to get the hang of the trick-or-treating. She really couldn't understand why people were putting things in her bucket and why she couldn't just stop and eat all of the candy right away. By the end of the night she really got it, and when we got home she was literally making snow angels in her large pile of candy.
Poesy's costume was about the easiest thing ever. We got her some Mickey ears when we were in Walt Disney World earlier this year. The rest of the costume was black tights, cut-off red sweat pants with two white buttons stitched on, a black l/s shirt from her wardrobe, some child-size white gloves, and some big kid white socks pulled over her shoes.
Hope's costume was a wig and a pre-packaged Wednesday costume that needed a bit of modification. Seriously, the dress looked so much like a pilgrim costume and I wouldn't be at all surprised if I saw the same dress in different packaging. I changed the shape of the collar and trimmed the cuffs, and then we added black tights and black Wal-Mart mary janes. I feel like I got off easy this year. I mean, remember last year's costume? That took a while.
Oh, and just because I know some of you might be curious, my jacket is Free People from Marshall's (last year), my sweater is from Lulu's, my dress is Red Velvet, and my purse is Darling brand from ever+mi.crush.
I hope you all really did have a great Halloween. Leave me a link in the comments when you post photos of you or your kiddos all dressed up!
