I also made a black feather wreath. I think I'd eventually like to have scads of Halloween wreaths and have a different one for each of the doors in the hallway, but for now we have this one on the front door. (I also did the cheesecloth this year--tea dyed for aging & then distressed with scissors and ripping).
This is Chick's artwork from preschool this week & I love it! It was painted with a marble.
On Friday we went to my Sister & parents' church party. It was lots of fun, and both girls liked having the extra family members around. Here are some of the other costumes:
My neice: Integrity Value BarbieMy brother-in-law: Jack Sparrow My nephew: Captain Borbosa (the two guys hosted one of the rooms for trick-or-treating & had it all decorated in Pirates of the Carribbean style...I didn't get a picture, but it was awesome)
On Saturday we went to our church's Trunk-or-Treat. HH handed out glow bracelets with Monkey (yup, we didn't do candy) while I took Chick around to the other cars. It was raining & cold (pretty typical of this area...I have many memories & pictures of cold, wet Halloweens), so after the trunk-or-treat we skipped going to the town center & just headed home. We went around the neighborhood & then watched 'Monsters vs. Aliens' with HH & Chick doing door duty.
While HH & I were helping finish with clean-up at Trunk or Treat, Chick sat shivering in the back of the jeep. I don't know if you can tell very well in the picture, but she was totally frozen & miserable at this point.On the drive home Chick was really interested in all of the candy in her pumpkin. HH gets most of it, but I did save some for her (like M&M's...she really likes "Emma M's")
