Halloween 2009 part 1...

This year Halloween was a bit different for us! We were in a town where the girls had never gone TorT*(trick or treating) before. My girls started talking about what they wanted to be a while ago. Bug wanted to be either Bat Girl or SuperGirl, and Lo followed suit and said she wanted to be SpiderGirl! I was excited cause my thinking was "hey, these might be easy to put together"! See I see all these blogs talking about money saving tips, and I have one to share....Don't spend money on Halloween costumes!!! It's 1 day, and we don't even "celebrate it"'s just a fun night to dress up and get candy. We even have a little rule that the girls can't be anything "demonish" meaning, the devil, a witch, or something like that. Other than that I let them decide on what they want and I try and put it together. Last year was difficult for me being that Lo wanted to be toodee from Yo Gabba Gabba, but I think I did okay! Well the closer it came, the more their minds changed this year. Finally I said okay, that's it...decide NOW...and Lo said Cinderella, and so then Bug chose Sleeping Beauty. If you know my kids they love princess's. They play dress up all the time and are a little obsessed....So I didn't care, and was glad cause we already had the costumes!! (Um hello....FREE) Plus they are 4, if they want to be something that they play all the time, it doesn't bother me. So for their costume's I bought them some cheap wigs that were really cute!! I also found a 5.00 snow white costume for baby girl so that was AWESOME!! This is Lo doing her Cinderella smile! Bug LOVED her Wig!

We took a wagon cause we live in a small town and it was easier for Lo not to get too tired using her walker. Baby girl pretty much walked the whole hour and a half of TorT*!! She is a trooper! And she loved it! She wanted to carry her little pumpin bucket the whole time!!

This little princess was simply adorable!! The cutest!!
I think the highlight of the evening was when we went to the school for trunk or treat! The girls enjoyed a hot dog, and always love "going to their school" They got plenty of candy that we are all enjoying!! Oh, and another thing, it was like summer in Ohio on Friday night, and winter on Saturday!

Check out my next post(Halloween part 2) to hear what we did on Saturday!!!

You sound just like I did this past week. My girls couldn't decide on what they wanted to be for Halloween and after an hour in Walmart trying to pick something and coming home with two costumes that they really didn't like - I made the new rule..."I am not buying halloween costumes anymore". I took back the ones I had just bought them and told them to search through their ballet costumes and whatever else was up in their rooms and from here on if they want to dress up for Halloween, they would have to make their own costumes.

We also don't allow anything scary, demonish, etc. No witches, ghosts, devils, etc. And it's amazing how many costumes like that are out there.

You have beautiful princesses - great choices for costumes.

your daughters are gorgeous and Little Lo is so inspiring.
Through God's strength may she go from strength to strength and achieve everything she sets her mind to do.
