We decided we'd better carve pumpkins again, since daddy missed out on carving while we were in California. Clara's Jack-o-Lantern face was a bit abstract.
I am kind of in love with the girl's costumes this year. They turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. Honestly, I couldn't find very good tutorials for either of the costumes so I was mostly winging it.
Abby chose to be Merida this year. She picked it for the bow and arrow, which I was able to find at the Dollar Tree--score! I used this blog post, mostly just for ideas. I thought her instructions were kind of confusing. My magnum opus was that wig. It took quite a bit of time but it definitely made the look. I used this method, though I didn't used quite as much yarn and I didn't crochet my own hat.
Clara's Rapunzel costume came almost completely out of my brain because I couldn't find any I liked very much. However, this guided how I made her wig. Again, less yarn. She only weighs 25 pounds after all.
I'm not sure what she was doing in the picture but she looks so angelic.
It's hard to get a good smile out of her these days. Her cheese looks like she's in pain.
Sam made her this Pascal, which was super cute. She didn't want to wear it though.
Here they are with their spoils. They actually got more at the church party in about 20 minutes then they did in an hour plus on Halloween.
They had a blast trick-or-treating with their cousins!
