this halloween fun was had by all! last year i scored these cute Princess pumpkin templates. Anna had a Sleeping Beauty, Avery did Belle, and Madeline's was a coach for Cinderella.
the girls nixed my plans to head out to a little grove for a pre-halloween photoshoot, so we improvised with our neighbors yard.
my sweet little Avery is a Belle lover. i have a really crazy problem with all the Belle costumes available in stores. the store-Belles all have pink flowers on them for some reason. so i whipped up a more classic Belle ensemble.
luckily, Madeline wanted to wear the southern belle costume i made last year! she rocked it!!!
and then there was my little Jessie! i love Anna's obsession with that cute little red-headed doll.
and let's not forget Bubba. thanks to Aunt Corby, he was the cutest little monkey ever!!!!
we had our annual chili party followed by trick or treating! i found that we make halloween so fun on the block that these two would rather be home than out getting candy. so i left Anna with some neighbors and brought the little girls home. they played, ate candy, and crashed hard!
when Anna came home i realized that she hadn't done her homework. i told her to get it done, then put herself to bed and i'd be back to check on her. the little sweetie did it. it was the best halloween ever.
