Halloween Festivities!





Here I am 1.5 days before Halloween and still madly making costumes. Will I ever learn??? We are going to California to go trick or treating in our flip flops! I have finished 3 out of 4 of the boys costumes...C3PO (he didn't want a helmet and I'm not going to argue), R2D2 (the baby friendly version that allows a 13 month old to crawl and walk) and finally my little Yoda ("revealed your feelings are...), hopefully by the time our flight leaves tomorow I will have a storm trooper to add to the repetoire! I made the R2D2 costume out of old t-shirts that my husband and I had accumulated from 5K runs and promotional shirts from work (thanks JetBlue!). I'm feeling pretty good about my up-cycled creation costing a total of .75! Happy Halloween, may your children get lots of great candy for you to eat! (chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!)

Love the costumes. The boys look great. Every year I say 'next year I will start costumes early' and I never do and we never have fantastic costumes.
