This October we definitely made the most of Halloween. We decorated cupcakes and cookies. We made mummies with twinkles. Painted Hallowing signs. Painted and craved pumpkins. We also went to a pumpkin patch every weekend. And of course trick or treating, and scary movies.
Mika's TrailBlazers Pumpkin

One of my favorite things about Halloween is having a theme for our costumes and making the family all coordinate. This year we did a circus theme. And I am really, really, really happy with and so proud of how they turned out.
I made almost everything for the girl's costumes. Ellie's leotard and leggings were both purchased. And everything else I made! We had some issues with Millie's costume. I wanted to make it big, so the girls can use it for a dress up for years to come. Only I went way over board with it, so much so that it was originally too big even for Ellie and I could even fit into it! I took it in, so that it can be taken back out and be enjoyed for many years.
Mine and Mika's costumes were much simpler than the girls. I found my red blazer at DI and then just went a little crazy with the glitter and fabric glue. (It shed sooo much glitter.) I also found Mika's vest at DI. Then I made his popcorn hat and tray with a Krispy Kreme hat and box.
I really love how it all turned out! I am going to be sad when my girls get big enough that they don't want to do a family theme anymore.
