Happy Halloween!!! This year Joe and I were a little bit late planning the costumes, so we rant to walmart a few hours before the spooking began and let Amelia choose this witch outfit. She was debating between this and iron man. Jane got to use some hand me downs from good old cousin Tris. Amelia loved dressing up and telling everyone she was a "mean witch" with a "scary green face". The face makeup didn't last long, you can see she wiped a patch off even before the photo shoot. Jane was being tended by an obliging Leah. Please note Jane's huge and wonderful thighs in the last picture.
Joe opted to be a five-minute zombie (meaning, of course, that we threw his outfit together in five minutes) Jane was a care bear, I was an indian/snake charmer/woman with the cool outfit that Min's mom gave us, Amelia the witch, and Cocoa (who has recently become a house dog... gasp) was even sporting a festive necktie.
Amelia has weird interests. She's into whirlpools, bugs, anything 'scary', and princesses. (One of these things just doesn't belong) Today she asked me, very sweetly, if she could please go hold a snake. I told her that she could hold something from the yard instead... hoping for a potato bug... but she found snails. I couldn't go back on my word, so she held them, squished them, snuggled them, etc. And then there's nice, clean Jane.
