Happy Halloween

Those who know me know that Halloween is not my favorite holiday, but this year I realized that other than the Trick-or-Treating part, I really like what goes on at this time of year. I don't mind making costumes, though I was thrilled that Megan wanted to be a pumpking because we ahd that costume already. Isn't she cute!
Megan was so excited to be a pumpkin. She kept telling people not to eat her. She told one person, "I am just pretend. See! I have legs!"
I actually enjoyed this project. It was not hard and Liz loved it!
Liz looked darling in her poodle skirt. The whole costume fit her personality and she loved twirling in it.
The boys' costumes were a little trickier because I chose a very stretchy knit fabric, but I was thrilled that they turned out so well.
Mike wanted to be Draco Malfoy (or Drayco Moufoy as he spelled it on a school paper). Below is his best attempt at a mean scowl.

Nathan was so excited about his dementor costume. I told him he couldn't be a dementor if that was the cause of all of the gray skies and rain/mist we have had the last couple of days. He does look pretty spooky.

And here is the promised picture of Brian and I at his brother's party. I can't believe I forgot my white gloves! Oh well, it was fun. Jason's party is one of the things I like about Halloween. He has lots of good food, fun games for the kids and we watch a movie on a big screen in his backyard. It is a fun family time and that is what I like about this holiday.
One other thing I liked about this Halloween was Mike's First Grade Halloween program. They did some fun songs, poems and stories. It was so cute (and the perfect length, under 30 minutes!) Here is a poem that still makes me laugh when I think about it.
