This Halloween marks the 9th year of more than one Morrill child, and every year they have had coordinating costumes. I didn't start off intending to do that. But little baby Ryan as Winnie the Pooh with almost 2 year old David as Tigger was super cute, and it's just gone from there. This year Katy said she wanted to do the Wizard of Oz characters, and the boys said that was fine. Ryan ended up complaining about it a bit, but then he liked how his costume turned out. Pretty good for $3.77 in supplies, since all I had to buy was the black felt to make the hat, the raffia, and some brown face paint that we forgot to put on his nose last night! Nathan of course is in the Carter's lion costume that Costco sold and apparently many, many people got. I got David a grey hoodie and pants (both of which he is wearing again today, despite my efforts to convince him that it looks weird), silver face paint, and covered a dollar store funnel with aluminum foil. And we got Katy a new white tutu, sparkly red shoes, a actual basket to use for trick or treating, and I made her pinafore (altering a pattern I had to make it shorter and wider so it worked with the tutu). Oh yes, and I decided in the shower yesterday that I should dress up, too, so I just wore black clothes (yes, the shoes look kind of weird, but I wanted to wear comfortable shoes for all the walking!), bought green face paint, and wore Katy's witch hat from last year (which had a hard time staying on, so perhaps I should've sprung for an adult sized hat...).
I like how Ryan is holding hands with Nathan in this one. :-)
Well, I sat down to upload the picture of us all in our costumes onto facebook, and got busy doing this instead. I'm glad I did, but now it's 2:00 and I haven't had lunch! I'm hungry!
