Halloween 09

We had an accidental theme to our Halloween this year: fairy tales. The girls were flower fairies, Mac was a knight. Isaac wore the scariest costume he's ever had-a TEENAGER! Our family rule is once you become a teen, your trick-or-treating is over, so he got to stay home and hand out candy. He was in a bit of denial about it, because he came to me, all in a panic, several times in the days before, saying "Mom! We forgot to make my costume!"

Emma's been learning to sew, and jumped at the opportunity to make her own flower skirt, so she did all the work on hers. Ellie said she was tired after watching me cut out 2 petals, and went to lay down. We have some leftover petals, so Emma will be making a little one for Mac's friend's birthday gift. ( Don't tell, Jen!)
