Halloween

I love Halloween, oh it is so fun. I'm not really a crafty mama, but I love to make my kid's Halloween costumes. I think I like doing it so much because my mom always made ours growing up, so in my head somewhere its written that Halloween costumes must be homemade, anyway this year the costume making became a major event. Really I thought it would be no big deal, Mason saw a picture of something he thought was so cool he just had to be...and then I thought of the perfect costume to go with it for Max, you know like a theme and then well there were two other parts to the theme to make it complete so soon Shane and I needed costumes too. Really I thought I would work on it a few evening and then we would have these adorable costumes for Halloween. I started making them the first weekend in October, and finished them...um the Wednesday before Halloween. After weeks and weeks of our house being covered in fabric scraps, hot glue bits, and ribbon the finished products finally emerged. I admit it was a much bigger project than I anticipated, but oh my...the cuteness...

So incredibly cute, Nicole! Do you think your theatre background is what makes Halloween so much fun? I know it does at our house. Halloween is only barely beat out by Christmas as our favorite holiday.

No Bree...I am your drama friend, and I have never liked Halloween. Too scary for me!

Nicole those costumes are something to be proud of, they are AMAZING! You thrill me again with your gifts and talents!

I think you are soooo funny to say you are not crafty because you are. Your Costumes were AMAZING. I can't believe your talents and not only that most of them are self taught. I am always impressed. I can't decide who is my favorite costume- I look at the Lion and think that is it and then tin man races by and he wins. It is a toss up.

I never thought of that Bree, but oh we do love Halloween, so maybe that's it.

Oh.My.God.
Seriously, these are the best costumes I have seen. Like, ever. And you know I've seen a tn because just about everyone posted pictures of their kids from Halloween. These are so freaking cute. I cannot BELIEVE you made them. I'd be a disaster:)
