Halloween 2015 (For Display Only- Do Not Touch, Mickey's Hands, Caroline Hearts Monkeys)

This year's kids costumes were a labor of love.

Katherine knew early on that she wanted to be Wall-E a few months before Halloween.  David helped her spray paint her body and make her eyes.  She painted the pictures on the front herself.  

Every Halloween at their school, they have a parade which allows the students to see each other's costumes.  It can get very chaotic as they students line up and parade around the school. This year as Katherine was turning her head to look at something, when we turned back around, another student was turning the rows on her Rubik cube.  She had to tell the student to stop since that it wasn't a toy, it was a prop for her costume!

Harrison loves Mickey Mouse so I made his costume this year.  He loved it although the hands made it very difficult for him to pick up candy from the candy bowls on Halloween without it looking like he was grabbing an entire handful.  In reality, he could barely pick up even one candy with the gloves.  We ended up taking them off early on and he was much happier.

 If you know Caroline, you know that she LOVES monkeys so it was no surprise when she said that she wanted to be a monkey for Halloween.  Caroline wanted to make the costume herself so we went to Joann fabrics multiple times to complete her costume.  She cut out the pattern and sewed the majority of it.  Some people didn't guess correctly what she was, but all who know Caroline well, knew that she was monkey fashioned after her favorite monkey.
