Halloween Weekend

We had a great Halloween Weekend last week.  The church held a Family Fun Fall Fair Festival Fete Fling Thing (or something like that) on Saturday.  The girls jumped on jumpy castles, ate cotton candy, popcorn, and snow cones, went fishing, got "Fairy Eyes" painted on their faces, and just had a really fun time. 
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. 
 Little Mouse wasn't too happy with her costume at this point.  She made an awfully cute jack-o-lantern though.

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!)
