Pumpkins and Costumes

For Halloween, Joshua wanted to be an explorer. But he didn't want to wear a hat and he didn't want to carry his net. We ended up with a lizard on his shirt and a snake and binoculars around his neck. Micah wanted to be a puppy, just like his stuffed puppy. I made a decent attempt at making a costume, but couldn't quite get the ears right. He did have a little blue tail on the back that was adorable. :) Regardless, he was cute. (Don't worry...they didn't go trick or treating barefoot.) The night before, we carved our pumpkin. Neil cut it open, the boys and I scooped out the insides, and then we all worked together to come up with the face. The boys wanted a goofy, scary face. Do you think we succeeded??

Nice doggie outfit! I like the pumpkin face too! I'll bet your weather is feeling like fall now. Hope you all are doing great!

Definitely goofy, scary. I love the homemade costume. So far all of our kids costumes have been given to us so we have had commercial ones. We are at the end of our stash so we will be creating ones of our own next year. Those are always so much more fun! Miss you.
