A couple of weeks ago our family attended a Disney themed Halloween party. The idea was for every guest to come dressed as a different Disney character. It was a lot of fun putting together the kids' costumes. With all that has been happening with our flood it was nice to be distracted from making house related decisions (like choosing appliances) and focus on something a little more creative.
Trek outfit. I searched thrift stores for a walker but wasn't able to find one so I bought the one here from Wal-Mart for $15 (we added the tennis balls). Easton made his glasses from black pipe cleaners. I know it's hard to see in this pic but I also made a grape soda pop badge. A bunch of balloons and white hair spray pulled it all together.
Abby's tan skin made Pocahontas an easy choice for her costume. We cut up an old shepherd's costume, put her hair in braids and called it good. Abby made the necklace from a long piece of teal ribbon. It was super cute.
always loved dressing up. He wore my cave woman costume from when Easton was a baby and added a wig we already owned. He begged and begged for me to paint some chest hair on him and I finally relented. He loved getting into character. Obviously.
our Halloween box and was as happy as can be. I bought him some black sweats and that was it.
Henry refused an individual picture. The woody costume was worn by Easton 12 years ago! Can you believe that?!
We all had a great time at the party. It's nice to have everything ready for Halloween night as opposed to the last minute scrambling I usually do. Have your kids decided what they want to be this year?
p.s. I added some links in this post from some very old posts. It was fun looking back. My babies have gotten so big!
