and so halloween begins...

this will be the first of a few halloween posts. the kids will be wearing their costumes to at least 4 events this year so brace your selves for lots of pictures. the first event was their school halloween party. can you say cute or what? there is nothing like a bunch of proud, excited kids in adorable costumes. it really doesn’t take a lot to make kids happy. there were drinks, food, games and of course prizes. it’s funny that even with a lot of prizes to choose from amory and maelee kept picking the same ones. amory was a fan of the black spider rings and maelee was enamored with the purple bat rings. so they left with bags full of little plastic rings… and they loved them.
as you can see I did finish maelee’s tinkerbell costume in time. almost as soon as we got there the wings came off and she didn’t want to carry the wand, but she of course still looked adorable. and as for amory, the mustache and hat were quickly removed. tyler was the costume reject king. he just put on whatever they took off. by the end of the party he too was in costume.
