It should come as no surprise to you that Mia’s costume this year was very pink:
Or that I recycled a Mia costume for Finn:
Wait! That is Finn, right?
Both costumes were awesome.
Mia is so very into pink and dancing (she keeps telling people she’s going to dance class…she’s not) and by the end of this Halloween extravaganza, she had perfected the ballet arm position and pirouette. Sort of. I made the tutu and she had or needed most of the other stuff so it was a pretty simple fix. She loves the tutu and keeps wearing it over anything.
Finn’s birthday pal is a monkey so why shouldn’t he be one as well? And hey, I already had it in his closet from when Mia was a monkey (because she loved bananas so much). It was a little big on Mia when she wore it and Finn is a little younger than she was so it still wasn’t a perfect fit. But he looked cute.
Daddy was gone last week on a business trip but StreetFest at church is so fun that we went anyway. We missed him but had a great time with our little buddy Jackson.
I’m only slightly disturbed that this looks like a pre-date picture…
Who says a girl in pink can’t throw?
Excuse me, Mr. Buzz Lightyear…um, I think you’re about to experience some turbulence…
I didn’t get a picture of the wing in Finn’s mouth because I was trying to keep him from doing it.
Today we went to the office and let the kids roam the hallways. That was the extent of our trick or treating – I’m not really into the thought of lining up for candy from strangers. Mainly the lining up and battling crowds.
And man, getting pictures of the two of them these days is tricky.
Even if you enlist help:
Or have one pin the other one down:
And now for sugar detox…
