So there's this thing about me...I just really really love theme costumes!! Like almost nothing makes me happier than a family all themed out for Halloween. It's getting harder and harder every year to convince these kids to go with a theme though. I can't even remember what they all originally wanted to be, but I was lucky enough to be able to convince them to be Mummy's. In my naivety I though this would be such an awesome and super super easy costume. Well...I have sure learned from my mistake. Mummy costumes are one of the most time consuming things to make ever, like it took me at least 6 hours to make just the shirt and pants on the two big girls costumes, then I had to make their hats and Nora's little sleeper costume. My hands were so sore form all the stitching and my lips had some sort of allergic reaction to the thread I kept running through them before tying the knots. OUCH. Anyway, there was literal blood sweat and tears put into those costumes. So guess what...they're being Mummy's for the next few years! We've got to get some serious mileage out those costumes...lol! Now, back to the theme thing; so there's this thing about Cait...you can't convince her of anything. So she vehemently rejected the idea, and therefor ended up as a Mermaid for Halloween. And in classic Cait style, right as we were heading out the door for trick or treating she ran upstairs and changed into her Elsa dress. Oh Cait.

Anyway, Halloween on  Saturday is the best. So much time to get ready. We lazed around, went to a cousins hockey game, hit up a Halloween party and then carved pumpkins and ate dinner. Such a nice change from the usual gong show rush that Halloween is.
