Trick or Treat

This year I had great plans. 
I had some AWESOME costume ideas that I desperately wanted to do.
In the end I got one done. One day I am not going to be in school during the holiday's. I say this every year thinking the following years holiday season I will be school free and it never seems to happen! I did earn my degree in accounting over the summer but to work for H&R Block this upcoming tax season I had to enroll in their school. So for 2 nights a week I was gone for 4 hours instead of being home in front of my sewing machine. 

On the bright side I did get Madelyn's Cruella DeVille costume complete. She loved it and all the compliments she received. Emily wanted to be a fairy. Her costume was the one I was looking forward to the most that never got done. Oh well....maybe next year. She was still happy making her own fairy from our costume box and clothes she already wore. 

Brayden, aka Bad Batman found his costume out our Halloween box and fell in love. It didn't matter that it was 3 sizes to big. We rolled the sleeves and rolled up the pant legs. It worked! 
He was happy as happy can be!

Kylie wanted to be Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony. I made her costume out of tulle. Something I haven't done in years. And now I remember why! I hate tulle. Before it's worn while it's on the hanger it looks great. The minute the child puts it on that tulle collects electricity, it won't lay down and it just becomes a mess. But she loved it and was happy. She loved it so much she slept in it more times I'd like to admit. 

We met up with some friends in a different neighborhood to do the bulk of our trick or treating. Before leaving Bah Hum Bug Hunter who all of a sudden thinks he's to old for trick or treating was kind enough to take the little two around the neighborhood for me. 

 I love how these two are so patiently waiting for someone to come to the door. 
Trick or Treat!

I had to take a picture of my favorite costume I saw that night. It's not the greatest but you can imagine. It's Cinderella in her carriage! So creative, so fun.
