for the birds

it's november 1st, and that means halloween 2015 is complete.  this was the third halloween in our new house, and the third year of chilly rain.  at least this year wasn't sleet and snow and heavy downpours like last year.  despite the chill, the girls had a great time riding in the car from house to house, running up the long driveways, and smiling for candy.

my favorite about this year was that both girls decided affirmatively what they wanted their costumes to be.  harper's favorite animal is a peacock, she had a peacock themed birthday party this year, so of course that meant she wanted to continue and dress up as a peacock.  crosby caught a glimpse of a new disney show that premiered mid-september, and decided right at that moment that she wanted to be owlette from pj masks.  of course that meant that no costume existed for a show that debuted a month before halloween, so mama to the rescue.  i don't know how to sew, so this meant a hot glue gun and a lot of glue sticks.  and because i was making crosby's, i decided to make harper's as well.  it was a bit of a stressor, but it was also fun and to see the happiness on their faces because their costumes were exactly what they wanted meant all that time was totally worth it.

harper's favorite candy this year was a king size hershey's bar.  crosby's was nerds.  mama and daddy like anything that's leftover in the bowl, which meant a ton since we didn't have many trick-or-treaters.

happy halloween!
