We had lots of fun last week for Halloween. For the whole month really. Jaquelyn had four different opportunities to dress up and choose to wear a different costume each time! Rebecca wasn't quite as diverse, she only wore two because she really liked her costume. Luckily, I am a pack rat of the GOOD kind. Each year, I put the girl's costumes into a big bin with other Halloween paraphernalia. Then in following years, there are lots of costumes to choose from with out having to traipse to the store and fork over $40 for something they will usually only wear once.
This month we attended the Harvest Festival at the YMCA and Jaquelyn chose to be a gypsy (this was Taylor's several years ago) and Rebecca was Little Red Riding Hood (my grandmother made this cape for me many years ago).
We hosted the Girl Scout fun night for Jaquelyn's troop this month and decided to throw a Halloween Party for the girls. It was loads of fun! This time, Jaquelyn was a bride (my dress from Junior prom) and Rebecca wore her snow princess dress (that had been Jaquelyn's costume in 2nd grade)
On Halloween day, our church held a "trunk or treat" fun time in the afternoon. Jaquelyn brought out Super girl for this occasion (also one of Taylor's cosutmes from the past). Rebecca still stuck with her snow princess.
For the actual trick or treating event, Jaquelyn was Luna Lovegood. You have to be a Harry Potter fan to know who this is. Luna is a witch who goes to Hogwarts with the other kids but she isn't quite as big as the other characters. Rebecca wore the same dress but decided she wanted to dress it up a bit with some wings and a wand and dubbed herself a "snow fairy princess". I was a horrible parent and completely forgot to take pictures of my children in their costumes. Luckily, I snapped one before we went door to door with our neighbors. It's not great but better than nothing.
