Catch Up: Halloween

Heather loves The Magic School Bus and had been asking to be Ms. Frizzle for Halloween for months.  Luckily Grandma was willing to take a crack at making her a costume.  And it came out amazing!  Thanks, Mom!

Heather wanted to look like Ms. Frizzle in her favorite episode, the haunted house episode about sound.  Here is the source material:

And here's the result:

Corinne got to make her Halloween-costume debut in the blanket costume Jess made when Heather was smaller.  I like this pictures because Corinne is so excited she's vibrating (since she's blurry, but Heather's not).

Heather was a little hesitant about it at first, but she loved it.  And her new "Liz" is one of her core-group stuffed animals now.  Liz is always next to her in bed and is always taken out to the family room every morning.

The above pictures were taken a couple of days before Halloween.  Here's a day-of picture.  Heather's face paint was from the Halloween party they had at school.

I got my ghosties up again and bought some batteries to light them up properly with LEDs.  Still needs some work, but they're getting better:

This was Corinne's first experience trick-or-treating.  She caught on pretty quickly.  As soon as a door would open she would try to climb inside and reach for any candy she could see.  We did 5 or 6 houses with her and then dropped her off back at home while Heather and I did some more.

We got most of the street trick-or-treated before it started sprinkling.  This caused most people to head inside, even though it stopped before we made it back home.  But we were a bit soggy and Heather was worn out so we called it a night.
