Halloween Shouldn't Be So Scary This Year

If you remember this time last year, I was busy planning for making Halloween costumes. I was down to the wire sewing and gluing for the preschool Halloween party. But this year, I think I managed to luck out...majorly!

So the big question is what are the kids going to be?

Pippi Longstocking and a pirate. Ahhhhhh....could it get any easier than this. Yes, I found a dress for Anna at, of all places Gymboree, for $10. I have a great sock for one leg from one of Andrew's amenity kits from an overseas flight. I have to find one more stripy sock. I bought some orange hairspray for $3 for the braids she will have. Done!

For Alex we found a pirate sword/hat kid at Target for $5 and a pirate shirt on sale at Gymboree. Some 24-month pants he had from 2 years ago that still fit around the waist. Done!

I got Matthew a fire fighter rain coat this summer - his costume was done! Some white pants and a top for David completed his Dalmation costume. Done! It may never be this easy again....
