Wednesday, November 2
We had a wonderful Halloween this year. The weather was unseasonably warm and all costumes were put together well before the parade. It's been a while since either of those things have happened in the Shelton house. Poesy decided months and MONTHS ago that she wanted to be Santa Claus. I was certain she would change her mind after hitting up some of the Halloween stores, but she stuck with it! I bought the outfit pieces from Amazon, but you know I had to throw a little DIY in there-- I hand stitched the beard and it was so much cuter on her than anything else we had found.
Hope decided to be a Hufflepuff student and was totally convincing, as always. She couldn't decide what to be this year and, man... the Halloween stores had nothing to offer in the way of teenagers. Four days before Halloween she decided to commit to this, so Johnny and I went frantically internet and department store searching for all the pieces. The sweater vest was the only thing we couldn't find, so I found an athletic shirt on clearance for $3 and chopped it into a vest. I'm so glad it worked out!
Here are some pictures from our evening. Wouldn't you know it, my camera battery died as soon as we started to the parade. Thank God for iPhones.
We ran into Rachel's crew and finished our night eating pizza and swapping candy. Halloween 2016 was a success! Oh, and I'm so happy Poesy didn't change her mind about being Santa Claus. She was the cutest Santa ever.
