Halloween Costumes

In all the hustle and bustle of the day, I didn't get a good shot of Belle's hairstyle for Halloween.  It was so cute, though!  I did two dutch braids and then folded the ends over each other and tucked in the ends to make something like a wide braided bun at the bottom.  I may have to do this style again and post it.
I didn't have time for sewing this year, but we pulled it off with a hand-me-down dance costume from my niece, some gorgeous and gigantic butterfly wings from Jo-Ann Fabrics, and several borrowed parts to make a pirate.  I have really nice neighbors.

We handed out glow-in-the-dark fangs and bugs, pencils, lip gloss, and mini card games.  No candy!  Lots of the kids were very excited to get something besides candy.  One even said, "This is the coolest house ever!"  Now is the time to get some of this stuff on clearance and save it for next year.
