Every time I look at these pictures I just smile and hope that this year won't be so hectic.
I am reminded of what a challenge it was to find a cape for Gavin. It shouldn't have been so difficult but we could NOT find a kids cape anywhere and finally found a short adult cape which luckily worked just fine. Plus, I borrowed a red vest that had to be tailored to fit.
Then there was Britton who wanted to be a Werewolf - BUT - he didn't want the werewolf costumes in the store that had masks and "just made you look like a wolf." So, after looking at every possible Halloween/Costume store, I ended buying fake fur, ripping a pair of old jeans and a flannel shirt, and SEWING, his costume together. Then, we had to put brown make-up on his face and glue, yes GLUE fur to his face.
I am actually really proud of myself, because I am not a seemstress. What should take no time at all or looks like it should be really easy takes me FOREVER!
Regardless, their costumes were super cute and they LOVED them.
The other reason I can't quit smiling when I look at these pictures is that little Addi was
of her brothers. It took a long time to convince her that they were not going to hurt her and that they were "nice monsters". In fact, it took a lot of convincing for her to believe that the "monsters" were actually Britton and Gavin.
