a costume report

Stella started the weekend in pink as "Barbie as a rock star fairy princess". On Saturday, she decided to be a "wedding girl" instead. And that is why I don't worry about finding her a costume. I know she will change her mind a million times. Luckily we have a well-stocked dress-up collection. What will she wear to her preschool Halloween party this morning? Probably something else. For a girl who has multiple wardrobe changes on an ordinary day, Halloween is lots of fun.

Elliot didn't dress up this year. I mean, I didn't dress Elliot up this year. He didn't seem to mind, he was just pleased to find a bounce house. He had a lucky few minutes in there all by himself.

Mabel was a bat. Not Bat Woman. Just a plain old bat, thank you very much.

Oliver wanted to be a blue wizard with a slouchy hat. His wish was my command.

We rounded out our weekend with lots of candy and some face painting.
It was fun, but is Halloween over yet?
