We had a super fun Halloween this year!!! This year Gabe dressed up as Harry Potter, Selah was Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Mig was Spiderman!
Ever since Selah has been old enough to choose her own Halloween costumes she has chosen a Disney Princess. She has been Snow White, Rapunzel, Ariel and now Belle. She makes such a beautiful Belle, doesn't she?!?
Gabe made an awesome Harry Potter! He found these glasses at an antique shop downtown. They looked great with his costume!
Every time Halloween was mentioned, Mig said he wanted to be something different. At first he wanted to be a frog, then a tiger, then a dragon. Luckily we had all of those costumes. On Halloween morning he wore the Tiger costume, but after lunch he decided to be Spiderman. We didn't have the mask that goes with the costume, so I used some face paint instead.
At 2:00 in the afternoon we had a Homeschool Halloween party!
We played musical chairs, pin the tail on the mummy dog, and game called Trick or Treat. I had placed small slips of paper in a bucket. Half of them said "treat", the other half had tasks the child had to do to earn a treat! It was a lot of fun! One guest hopped on one foot 10 times, another "flew" around the room like a bat, and one had to make a scary face! We also did some Halloween crafts:
and Toilet Tube bats:
After Byron got home we had homemade pizza and then trick or treated in our neighborhood.
Mig is afraid of dogs, so after awhile he decided he had enough candy not to risk and encounter with a dog and decided to just ride in the wagon!
After Trick or Treating, we let the kids each choose one candy to eat while we watched "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown".
Byron and I also dressed up! The weekend before Halloween we attended a costume party. We went as an Angel and a Demon!
They say opposites attract - right?!?
Hope you had a safe and fun Halloween!
