Was It Halloween Out There?

It was Halloween here as well. According to Harry Potter, Robin Hood, and the Great Pumpkin.

All our costumes were simple and low-key this year, and I liked that!

Baby Wyatt was a pumpkin.  In fact the same pumpkin that Jonas was two years ago.  And the same pumpkin that Owen was five years ago.  It's fun--and I feel the need for a photo montage of the three pumpkins. . .

Jonas was Robin Hood.  I sewed up a green tunic and made his little hat.  My Jo-Ann's receipt sitting right here says I spent a whole $2.44 on his costume for the green fabric and two sheets of brown felt--not bad. 

I let him choose his feather out of a bag of multi-colored ones I had.  Owen thought it needed to be red-but Jonas loved it. 

Owen was Harry Potter.  (Here he is striking his best "spell-casting" pose.)

I just sewed up Jeremy's Masters regalia about a foot to make Owen's Robe.  He really wanted glasses, so on the day of our Halloween party Jeremy went to the mall and found a set of Harry Potter glasses and wand for like $10.  (I can't argue I guess--he does bring home the bacon around here.)  The sad thing was Owen had a really cool knobbly stick from the backyard for a wand, but when he saw the lumpy plastic one we couldn't convince him that his old one was way better. 

For the party he wore my Griffindor t-shirt from back in the day (when I was a cool nerd) and his wizard cap.  Of course three days later on Halloween night he couldn't find a wizzard hat in our house to wear--even though there are two of them. . . a mother can only do so much.

Come back next time to see what Jeremy and I were wearing (and the detailed description you will need in order to "get" what we are wearing at all!)
