Well, last night was so much fun!!! I absolutely LOVE Halloween (no shocker there!) For those of you that have followed my blog for sometime, you know that every other year we do a family theme. Well, this year was not my year:( BUT I will say the kids did a GREAT job of choosing their costumes! We all spent time together making the costumes and preparing for the big "haul". Despite the rain, we had so much fun last night! I was exhausted though so only got two of my pages done to share with you (yes, I am that retentive that because the costumes didn't match I had to do a separate page for each child!)
I should start by thanking Erica Shaw for the layouts today! She completely inspired me on finishing these pages. If you have never checked out her gallery I encourage you to do so over at www.mydigitalstudio.net! (she's also on our weekly blog hop!) I also have David Dooley to thank for the crown idea on Emma's costume. We were stumped and he came to the rescue....it's made from wire coat hangers then covered in bling - so smart!
Emma wanted to go out as a "Toddler and Tiara" Beauty pagaent girl. I find this so funny as this is the exact opposite of my usual girl! We had fun making everything for this outfit....the skirt, shirt, sash, crown! Thanks Emma for the time together!
Nathan worships Mark and loves that he plays football. So it was a given that he wanted to go out as a football player. BUT rather than wearing Mark's football team we convinced him to go out as Troy Polamalu....right down to the hair style! This costume was a big hit, and the best part is it cost me $3!!! We had everything except the hair. I went to the dollar store and bought three black ponytail entensions. I then sewed it onto a winter hat and voila....Troy's hair!
I hope you enjoy my pages today and depending on the day I may be back with the other two...if not I know you'll see them soon!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Also, don't forgot to go to www.mydigitalstudio.net and cast your vote!
