Halloween 2012

Well, our Halloween costumes are almost done. We try every year to spend as little $ as possible, but I am also realistic knowing we likely won't have EVERYTHING to outfit 6 children. Here's the run down this year...

#1 is going to be the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz. We're going trick or treating with friends of ours from our 'old neighborhood'. The 5 'older' girls are going to be some of the Oz characters. I can't wait to get pics of all of them together. So, #1 decided she'd actually be...Tin Girl.

#2 is going to be a skeleton like last year. I told him since I bought the costume he was DYING to have last year...that he'd HAVE to wear it 2 years in a row. He hasn't complained...so good for all!!!

#3 is going to be the Scarecrow. "I haven't got a brain."

#4 is the Cowardly Lion.

#5 is Darth Vader this year. Funny to me because last year he chose to be Yoda. He's so little to be 'into' Star Wars in my mind, but I guess you see the 'effects' on a little boy with a big brother influencing him?

#6 is going to be a cupcake. I didn't have a costume idea for her and she doesn't have a preference, so I decided to buy her a precious costume I found.

Stay tuned for the big REVEAL...later tomorrow night when my trick or treaters are all tucked in!

Here's the gang last year...

#1 Anne of Green Gables, #2 Skeleton, #3 Princess Leia, #4 Pippi Longstocking, #5 Yoda, #6 Ladybug

Wizard of Oz characters- my girls and their 2 friends.

The Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow.

My cupcake

The Skeleton and his 'sidekick' Darth

Had to post this one 'cuz seeing his eyes makes me laugh!
