Happy Halloween! As is my usual custom, I did not make my kids’ costumes. I like to take advantage of good pre-made costume deals and then spend my crafty time on things I’ll get to enjoy seeing the kids in on a more regular basis. I’d been pretty pleased with an eight-year run of costumes that did not ever include Disney Princesses, but this year Dorothy has been particulary enchanted by the movie Frozen and she jumped on the bandwagon with her choice to be Elsa this Halloween. We happened upon these costumes at a Cracker Barrel at the end of summer, and Dorothy was thrilled to see that we could get an Elsa dress for her and a matching one for her sister. So of course I bought the dresses, and Dorothy finished them off to her taste with blue capes she sewed herself and some Photoshopped snowflake magic, art directed by her but executed by me. The girls are cute in their dresses. Worth was inspired by the alligators we saw on our Hilton Head trip this summer and chose to impersonate this carnivorous swamp creature. He’s been pretend chomping everything, just as you’d expect from a 4-year-old boy/alligator. Hope your Halloween is magical!
