Trick or Treat

Our kids got to choose what they wanted to be for Halloween this year.  Owen chose Buzz Lightyear.  Or, "Buzz Whiteyeaw," really.  I felt like the cheapo store-bought costume needed a little something, so I made him some wings to go with it. 

 Sophie chose to be a swan.  We had several conversations about this.  I don't know why she wanted to be a swan, but she never deviated from that desire.  I googled "swan costume" to get some ideas, but all I got were pictures of Bjork!  So, we had to improvise on our own.
 See how the tutu is longer in the back?  It's the tail.  She actually really liked the costume (except that the feathers were itchy sometimes) even though she looks annoyed in the picture.  We were trying to move it along so we could get out of the house (in our 8 layers of clothes!) to go trick-or-treating.
 First we stopped at the W's to compare costumes, drop off some bloody-finger treats and do a little trick-or-treating together.
 Two Buzz Lightyears!!  This year it was Drew's turn to not want his picture taken.  Perhaps you remember last year?  (Scroll down to the group picture)
 There he is!

 All the kids had a good time going house to house together. 
 Mostly these two just kept running around all over the place, and we had to constantly keep yelling, "Drew!  Owen!  No, this way!  Stop there!  Stay to the side!  Wait for us!"
 It was so exciting.  Our kids' buckets were nearly full after just doing both sides of the W's block, and we still went home to visit our own neighbors houses!
 When we got home and stripped off the multiple layers, the kids got to check out all their loot and pick out one thing to eat before getting ready for bed.

I love it! The swan costume came out great. And Owen made a very realistic Buzz Lightyear. They look like they had fun. :)
