Halloween 2011

I had so much fun making Halloween costumes this year.  I was needing some crafty time- and this was a great fix.  Miller was Rapunzel & Eliza Grace was a candy corn.  Who knew- a bajillion yards of tulle and a crochet tube top = easiest princess costume in the world for about $5!?  I braided a bunch of yarn and stuck an alligator clip in it glued a few fake flowers here and there and we had Rapunzel's signature "do".  Wilson was Captain Jack Sparrow.  A local thrift shop provided the blue vest & shirt.  A pair of mom's old tights & some heavy yarn leftover from some unfinished something became a great wig. 

Eliza Grace quickly fell in love with this holiday.  Yelling, "HEY!"  whenever the big kids got too far ahead of her when running to the next house.  She's in love with all the suckers that now live in our pantry- freeing up her chocolate for a charity case known as "Mom at 4:30 in the afternoon".
