This years halloween was crazy! The whole week before, I was sooo busy getting ready for the craft fair I felt I barely had time to put together the kids costumes! But in the end it worked out and they looked so cute! Normally I just buy costumes because Im not super great at sewing, but The Girl wanted to be a bunny and I couldn't find one anywhere! (except online and they were like 50 really!?) So I did make her bunny suit. The ears I found at good will for 50 cents. (thats more like it!)

We found the boys costume at good will as well, but couldn't figure out what it was supposed to be! :) It looked like The Hulk, but it was hairy. So I figured it was a werewolf. I didn't want him to wear a full on mask, so in the end I found some awesome horns a Shopko and he ended up as a monster. Since I waited so long to put these together I couldn't find ANY scary wolf teeth or green makeup or black hair spray! So I used green food coloring on his face and in his hair, along with my mascara to tip the ends of his hair black. He was the scariest monster with the nicest teeth I have ever seen!

Baby girl was a kitty cat, which also came from Goodwill (LOVE that place!) It was a kitty cat costume that was originally from Old Navy, so it was a warm jacket type thing that was poofy and had a hood. It also had a little tail in the back that she kept wagging around all night. sooo cute! On the hood it had ears and whiskers and a little fish! :) I was going to make some white pants to match the jacket, but I ran out of time, so we just bought pink sweatpants. She looked adorable.

Since Halloween ended up being on a Sunday this year, we celebrated on Sat. night by going to our churches Chili cook off and trunk or treat. (we park all the cars in the church parking lot and kids trick or treat around to each cars trunk!) :) I made our favorite chili and ended up winning 2nd place in the meat lovers category. I was quite excited, and validated. I can cook! Yay! My friend Jen (who also won second place in her "traditional" category!) and I dressed up in a few super capes I had made for the kids and it was a fun night. Next year we are hoping to be in a normal neighborhood and we can take the kids door to door.

Here are the pics (it was really dark in there, so I had to use my flash! :(  ), but enjoy!:

Nice hair Ash, nice hair....... :)
