Luckily I happened to be at the big whiz-bang private school the day before helping with the international fair (which was amazing BTW…crafts and food from all over the world), and I was able to snag a little Egyptian headdress from the Egyptian craft station for Claire to color to go with her outfit (she’s some sort of Egyptian queen).
At first she was a little hesitant to wear paper on her head for a queen, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers and it she colored it so well that it turned out perfectly.
She was most excited about the make-up.
By the time Grace came out to the car, we were all in there waiting for that girl, and then we scattered once we got to the park so I never got a pic. of them all together. Darn it all! But here’s our “explorer.”
Grace is past the caring-too-much stage for Halloween but we brought her friend along who was dressing up too (and who I also didn’t get a picture of…double dang!) and she wanted to come up with some kind of idea.
When we got to the park my friend brought over the extra part of Claire’s outfit:
…didn’t realize there was a head-dress too, man alive we hit the jackpot!! (although I was a little sad to see the paper crown go 🙂
Trunk-or-treats always make for a good time I tell you. I mean, what’s not to love about going around collecting candy?
I reminisced how I carved an apple just to be creative one Halloween growing up. I guess that’s a tradition since the kids reminded me I tell that every year. Claire did her own little apple carving…
It was definitely far from our usual carving hoopla, but then again, so is everything here.
That was a whole Barbie land up there above.
And then there was my little rainbow dog.
