Even though it took place around 6 weeks ago, I figure it's better late than never :)Halloween was super fun this year!
So after finding the perfect Dora clothes for Eadie (harder than you think to find a true orange pair of shorts by the way..), then receiving the adorable toddler Boots costume in the mail (and it fit perfectly!), then sewing and attaching extra frills and colors to my mauve princess ball dress to make it just like Rapunzel's in the movie Tangled, as well as borrowing an absolutely perfect Belle costume (from Beauty and the Beast) for Tori to wear, thanks to my friend Sandy Munro (www.patchesofheaven.blogspot.com), we were all dressed up and ready to go to the ward Trunk-or-Treat night up at the chapel. (I say we, as Juan said he was going as "the guy too cool to dress up", AKA: he went as himself *insert rolling eyes here*.
Nevertheless, the kids had a lovely time going from car to car shouting "trick or treat!", and our little buckets were filled with lollies just in time to skiddaddle before the rain hit.
Phew! I'm worn out thinking of all the effort we went to for this year's Halloween.... and also excited thinking of what we can do for next year's costumes..!!! ;-) Meanwhile here are some pics for 2012:
