Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from somewhere over the rainbow! On Saturday, our neighborhood held its annual Halloween block party where all the kids/families dressed up in their halloween costumes and enjoyed a chili cook off and movie night.  Last year we had so much fun dressing up as a family for the event that we decided to go for it again this year in one of my favorite themes of all time, Wizard of Oz.  As a little girl I dressed as Dorothy for four Halloweens straight, so the love runs really deep here.  I even tried to follow in my mom's footsteps by making the costumes myself, but with very little patience for sewing, these little beauties' costumes had to make their way into the world with a yard of blue gingham, three sticks of hot glue (ha!), and one of my old skirts safety-pinned around Marin's waist.  Overall, I was pretty pleased with our efforts, especially the tin man's commitment to that silver paint.  Love this family and these fun memories.  There really is no place like home.  ;)

As for tonight, we have fed the babies and are watching Marin's choice of Mother Goose Club's Halloween special before heading out to trick-or-treat. And if all ends well, I'll be able to convince Andy to watch Hocus Pocus with me before we crash for the night.  Have a fun and safe night everyone!
