happy halloweeeeen!

We found a spooky black cat and a little garden gnome in a field and decided to bring them home for Halloween this year. After all, they were pretty cute.

Or, maybe we just stopped to take pictures in a field next to dad's work before any candy-induced crankiness set in... ;) 

My goal this year was to spend as little money as possible on their costumes, so we kept them simple and the only part I ended up having to buy was the black cat tail. We already had the cat ears from the animal ear headbands I made a couple of years ago (although they are not pictured in that post because I hadn't glued them onto a headband yet), and I borrowed the cute gnome hat from my friend Danielle. Everything else we had in our closets or costume box, including my very last minute pirate duds. I made the dress Lark wore when LM was Little Red Riding Hood, and I discovered that sweet red Swiss dirndl in my stash. Around Halloween it really pays off to be a collector/seller (hoarder) of vintage children's clothing!

The girls loved trick-or-treating and we have all been eating too much candy... Happy Halloween!!! And, Happy Weekend!
