I get excited too and have fun helping them choose and make their costumes.
|Judah was the turtle man... which fits him perfectly because he love anything to do with critters|
|Simeon fit into Judah's old Robin Hood outfit that I made for him 2 years ago...he's just happy he got a prize for being so cute!|
|Ellie kept changing her mind about what she wanted to be, so I gave her a little help, deciding on Red riding hood|
There is a small church in our area that hosts a yearly fall festival. My husband and his family have been going there every year since he was small. Its fun to carry on the tradition with our children.
They hold a costume contest for each age group and this year I had a child in almost everyone! They all won prizes except for my clone trooper...he was pretty disappointed especially since he worked the hardest on his outfit. I know it was a good lesson for him to have a good attitude and learn that not everyone can win but I felt so bad for him that I went out and got him a prize. What can I say I am a sucker for a wounded heart.
Along with the anticipation for the costume contest was their excitement over winning candy. They had numerous fun games where they had to earn their candy. I usually bag up their booty and hand it out sparingly so it will last them quite a while; I am tempted to just get rid of it all, but I know I will never hear the end of it.
I think one of the best parts of being a child... for that matter an adult, is the excitement and
|What!? No more candy?!|
