We had a full day of Halloween fun this year with two sets of costumes!
After a late night sewing session, I finished all of the costumes for my family.
The fox set of costumes became much easier when a gracious church member allowed us to borrow her son's fox accessories for the morning. The vest for Macklin's Jake costume was the most time consuming, but I used this website for the idea and this website for the pattern. I really enjoy this part of the dress-up process, I just always should start sooner.
What Does the Fox Say?
Our morning outfit was the What Does the Fox Say theme. The song/video is super popular right, especially with our high school friends. If you haven't seen it, you must watch it. Keep in mind that it is from a Norwegian talk show (with comedians) and they just made this for their viewers. Their website says that no one that previewed it even thought it was funny. It is silly and awkward but the beat will be in your head for the rest of the day.
Our high school friends thought it was funny and our principal got a great shot of our family.
Here are a few of my favorites from the EVHS Costume Contest (which is a bigger deal than Homecoming)
Cheetah Girls, Greek Gods, and Taco Bell Sauce Packets
Then we headed off to library Story Time where the kids got to TorT around to the librarians. Nice, warm, easy first step for them! Most people had no idea what Macy was sporting, but it didn't matter. She looks more like a Macaroni Grill server than anything.
Trick or Treating
The real costumes that Macklin wanted were to be Jake and the Neverland Pirates. I think they look pretty darn close to Jake and Izzy!
We had a blast at the Dodds with this group of characters. We are blessed to have sweet friends in this valley that love Jesus! It was a fun night. Only one house scared Macklin with creepy people in the front yard (actually mostly my runners!). Macklin was WAY more excited that last year. He would yell, "ONTO THE NEXT HOUSE!" After saying his thank yous. It was fun to watch.
