I am really so happy with the frugality of Halloween this year! This pile of napkins:
Gave me a vest, a carpenters apron,
These cool arm guards
AND a tunic!
|Check out that pose!|
And there is even one more napkin left over for Leo to wear on his head with a rope as St. Joseph
It isn't like we have a shortage of costumes around here.
The kids found one of our costume boxes and went to town!
But these are all just for playtime. We wear this to the grocery store,...uh...that's it actually. We only go to the grocery store and Church...
But when I spoke to my friend and she told us that the Trunk or Treat at Church costumes should be saints, I freaked out. And started googling.
I found this: All Saints' Day Costume Ideas for Girls
and this: All Saints' Day Costume Ideas for Boys
Those idea sites are a GOLDMINE!! Bookmark them for next year, and every subsequent year after that!!
As it turns out, not many other children were dressed as saints. Maybe 1-2%??? Now we just look like the holy-rolling new family at Church.
But they were an awesome Holy Family!!!
Baby Jesus taking off.
Roman's costume was really involved.
It actually took a long time to wrangle his legs into that swaddling pillow case
The trunk or treat program was pretty awesome
It was just entertaining to watch Mary and St. Joseph do really weird stuff. Like fish for candy.
The beginning of the sugar rush
And the end.
I can't wait to do this all over again in 3 days :)
