Several months ago the girls started talking about Halloween. (yeah...we must not have much to talk about!!!) Hannah really wanted to be a princess. There is nothing wrong with that, but for some reason I really wanted to avoid a commercialized costume that every other kid will have. Maybe it's because I'm too cheap to buy the store costumes and to lazy to make my own!!!! Anyway, I didn't force the issue, just offered a few other ideas and both of the girls were hooked with poodle skirts. Something about twirling skirts sounded appealing to them. So....they decided to be 50's girls. Naturally Hannah chose yellow and Sofia chose purple.
They had lots of fun twirling in the skirts!!
I thought of doing the 50's theme for the entire family, but ended up not doing it. TJ went as our little monster....with clean teeth!
We had fun carving pumpkins. The girls really got into it this year. They each got their own pumpkin and really enjoyed seeing them lit up.
