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.
