Lucy was so cute as a witch in the best costume. Leland wore this witch outfit the past 2 years and it came from one of Chuck's sisters. The hat is the best. Leland wanted to be a princess, but I really didn't have a fancy dress for her to wear. I let her search through my box of fabric and choose her favorite. She couldn't decide between 2 of them, so I made her a simple reversible dress. She named herself a Star Princess.

My mom got Charly a Baby's 1st Halloween onsie, but I left it at my sister's house last weekend. We had several choices of costumes for Charly, but the only one I got a picture of her in was her cow outfit. I had a great spider costume for her to wear at our Ward Trunk or Treat, but she was not in a happy mood, so I never put it on her.

Here is Leland and two of her friends at the Trunk or Treat. There was also a chili cook-off. I made a white chicken chili and proudly took 2nd place.

I took the girls to a Halloween party at an assisted living retirement home.  After a magic show some of the residents had candy to give out. They were just sitting in chairs in the main area and I think many were confused on what to do with the candy.  We had fun, but it was a bit chaotic. The girls enjoyed playing with friends that also came.

That night, Chuck took the girls trick or treating to some houses on our street. It had rained most of the day and was very hot and humid by the time they went out. They all came home sweaty and tired. Chuck slipped on someone's front steps and badly bruised his tailbone. He has been in a lot of pain, but is finally getting better.


  1. I have a couple things to say.

    1. Charly is chubby!! I love it. I can't believe how fast she has grown.

    2. I witnessed Leland in the witch's costume last year and it is adorable. And Lucy looks really tall, and looks to have curly hair. I like her even more if that was possible.

    3. Hot and humid? That sounds real nice about right now. I don't think that is something to be complaining about.

  2. Man I can't believe that witch costume looks as good as it does!!!! That thing came from Dixie when she was Lucy's age! It is a really cute costume!
