The kiddos have been planning their costumes this year since JULY. We watched Lord of the Rings this summer as a family, and they decided right away that they were going to be Legalos (Jo) and Gimli (Jack).
I have fun making their costumes every year, and I know that there will only be a few more years that they will want me to. So, last week we headed to Goodwill and Walmart for supplies:
A maxi dress (for cloaks), 2 women’s sweaters, a belt, some felt, some brown yarn, and a dowel rod. Not pictured: elf ears bought from Amazon. 🙂 About $20 total for the two costumes..not too bad!
They were SO excited with these finished costumes!
We went to trunk or treat at Mee-Maw’s church on Sunday night. Halloween this year is supposed to be stormy and rainy, so this will be our main trick-or-treating for the year. Here’s the picture overload of two very cute kiddos:
Josie wrapped her bow in yarn so it would look better. 🙂 She also did all the designs on her arm bracers herself! She was the most excited, though, about those ears.
Jack LOVED this beard. He was very excited about it!
Trunk or treat was fun. Shshr came with us, and Ta, Tommy, Josh, Jackie and Everett were there. Chad and Lesa came by with the girls, too.
