Halloween, a hallowed evening indeed!!

We had a lot of fun on Halloween night. Erin dressed up as Aurora (aka Sleeping Beauty). Her long brown locks are from a wig I bought at a garage sale that day. I thought it added a nice touch to the costume, but it made her look more like Serena, Samantha's evil sister on Bewitched (for those of you who are old enough to remember that show).

Garrett dressed up as a vampire. I thought he looked very dashing is his black cape.

I had no intention of dressing up, but I found these wigs at a garage sale and one of them inspired me to dress up as a hippy. Judge for yourself if I look like an authentic '60's hippy.

We went trick or treating with some friends in a nearby neighborhood because there are very few houses in our neighborhood. The kids got a ton of candy and we all had a great time. We even got candy from one of Garrett's teachers. It was a howling good time!!!

I was pretty proud of my jack-o-lantern this year. I used an apple correr to cut out the eyes and nose. I thought it turned out pretty cool.

The day after Halloween, Garrett decided he wanted to try on Erin's costume. Garrett is always copying Sissy. So here is Garrett as Aurora.
