Elle came home after getting all gussied up with her friends to be the Spice Girls (they came in dancing their hearts out to one of their songs all in character) right before Grace had to leave to meet up with her friends to transform themselves into vampires.
So there we go…happy Halloween from a spice girl, a little witch, Pocahontas, and a half-way-turned-into-a-vampire girl.
Lucy really wanted to paint her face green, but figured she’d wait until the real Halloween for that. She did try the glove for five minutes but wasn’t in love.
Here we are complete with the glasses.
Our neighborhood does this pretty great fall festival every year.
Then it was on to the actual Halloween and the green face paint.
When I was applying it Lucy decided she’d really rather not wear it, but I told her to go check herself out in the mirror before we washed it off.
All I could hear from the bathroom was her laughing her head off. She thought she was pretty dang hilarious, but still wouldn’t let me smooth it out very well.
Complete that look with her orange glasses and she was quite a doozy of a witch!
Lucy wore her shoes on the wrong feet like that all night long. She insisted that they were on the right feet.
My brother Josh, my neighbor and her kids and Lu and I cruised around the neighborhood to trick-or-treat while our husbands manned a little fire pit at the end of our cul-de-sac and handed out candy. This is the only goofy picture I got of them when they were putting the fire away at the end of the night.
Dave’s parents dropped by for a little bit at the end…
These two trick-or-treaters were still pretty excited about their left-over candy after the dads negotiated with them to give away most of it. Pure delight in those eyes.
I think Lucy’s eyebrows were exceptionally well highlighted with the remainder of the green face paint 😉
One friend came home with her for the big “candy-count-and-trade-dump.”
And then Grace’s friends showed up for a little hot chocolate making:
….and Elle showed up right in the nick of time before curfew with a big smile after hopping from place to place with her friends all night.
And that’s a wrap until next year.
Hope it was a great one for everyone!
