Aren't they Gorgeous?
The next day we got all dressed up in our Orange and Purple dresses for Church. Banana Girl even had a Halloween shirt with cats and pumpkins to wear under her jumper.
Our outfits were complete with orange flowers for pigtails (Banana Girl) and spider hair clips (for Princess M & I).
I make girls hair bows for fun, from flowers to bows, to bugs (lady bugs, bees, and butterflies) I've been wanting to try a spider for a long time. This year I finally did it. They turned out pretty cool I thought. Mine had brown legs and Princess M's had orange. They were a hit at church.
Monday brought Halloween. Princess M got to wear her costume to school all day and the other 2 girls joined her after dinner in costume for Trick or Treating at the mall and the park for community sponsored festivals/"safe" trick or treating.
Princess M went as Rapunzel. We had an old blond wig laying around the house and for the cost of a cheap hair extension ($6) we brushed out the hair, braided the extension into the wig and filled it with homemade flower pins to look like Rapunzel at the floating lights celebration. It's too bad I didn't get a picture when we finished making it. It was quite stunning.
Here's what it looked like after a day at school and trick or treating though.
Banana Girl went as her favorite princess, Cinderella (the one in the pink dress as she put it.)
We had a great time! The girls came home pooped and with a basket full of candy each. (Which Mom and Dad promptly confiscated and now use to bribe them to do chores. What mean parents we are! Thanks for the idea, Nate & Cindy!)
