Our Halloween, 2014

Halloween 2014 Halloween 2014 Halloween 2014 Halloween 2014 Halloween 2014 Halloween 2014 Halloween 2014 Halloween 2014 Halloween 2014
The theme for Halloween this year was "down to the wire".  Hope decided the day before Halloween that she didn't, in fact, want to be a store-bought Princess Peach, but thought a butterfly was a much better idea.  I spent my entire Friday painting butterfly wings, sewing sparkly fabric to a sweatshirt, and fashioning antennae for her costume.  I'm proud to report that I finished everything up 5 minutes before our neighborhood Halloween parade was set to start.  We made it in time, ran into the Denbows at the parade, and had a fun night.  Poesy  was a great little Pinocchio, and though she was mistaken for a boy many times, handled it much better than I expected.  "I'm not a boy, I'm just dressed like Pinocchio.  I'm really a girl."  I, on the other hand, was continually mistaken for a grown-up dressed as Elsa by every little girl ever, and didn't handle it quite as gracefully as Poe.  Lesson learned.

Anyway, I hope your Halloween was great!
