Happy Halloween!

Surprisingly, or not, our Halloween's have been themed by Liv the last couple of years. This year she wanted to be a princess, and so did Lily and I she informed me. :)  Daddy couldn't be a princess so he got to be the king.  It's nice that he is such a good sport.  I like to make our Halloween costumes and I knocked Daddy's out real quickly a couple months ago, and then nothing.  October began and I still hadn't started on the girls or my own.  My back was hurting with being pregnant and the idea of sitting down for hours to trace, cut fabric and sew everything together was just not sounding magical, so I kept putting it off.  Luckily Kirk and Ann came for a visit in the middle of October and Ann cut out all three dresses for me!  What a life saver!  After that I sewed each dress up in a few hours.  I was very happy I had thought ahead when buying the fabrics and gotten A-lined dresses.  It fit fabulously over the baby belly.

On Halloween night we had a fun neighborhood pot luck dinner.  Everyone came and ate and the kids did a parade and some prizes were given out for the costumes.  It was lots of fun.

After the pot luck everyone went trick or treating.  My girls would have stayed out all night!

Happy Halloween!

What a great neighborhood you live in! All the costumes turned out great and I can't wait to see what the theme is next year.

The costumes are awesome! Next year you should all dress up as the Mays Family. You can be mom and get a big poofy perm wig like her do when we were little. You can give Marcus a plaid flannel shirt and the girls side pony tails! LOL!
