OFF TO NEVERLAND!!!
For Halloween our family chose to take a trip to Neverland. We all went as characters from Disney's Peter Pan movie.

Joshua (Peter Pan)
Eliza (Princess Tiger Lilly)
Aubrey (Tinker Bell) James (Pirate) Nichole (Wendy)

In order to get ready for Halloween we bought the movie and started watching it almost everyday for about a week before Halloween and I had been working on creating the costumes for the past month. On top of that James taught Joshua to say "Off to Neverland!" and Eliza to say "HOW!"instead of "Trick of Treat." Joshua was so exciting about being Peter Pan that he wore his costume for three days. Not only on Halloween but on the day before and the day after. The night before we went to a Trunk or Treat put on by our church. Joshua knew exactly what to do and Eliza tagged along behind. After getting her first piece of candy she was ready to stop right there and eat it. Then she realized that she got more as she went along.

On the day of Halloween I took the kids to the historical Fox Theater for a showing of Pooh's Heffalump Halloween movie and they got to wear their costumes. It was packed but the kids loved the movie. The only thing that upset them was that their Daddy was not there so I decided to take the kids over to the Progressive office to go Trick or Treating. His coworkers just loved it and the kids loved showing off their costumes. Later that night we all dressed up again in our costumes and took the kids trick or treating at a nearby neighborhood. Unfortunately, there was only one family giving out treats on our block so we packed the kids in the car and headed to a friends street. We started on one side and worked our way back to their house where they were holding a spooky Halloween party. We had lots of fun. The kids were so hyped up on candy that it took a while before we got them to sleep but you only have Halloween once a year so we let they have fun.

The next morning the first thing Joshua did was put on his Peter Pan costume and was asking to watch Peter Pan again. That was when my Mom and Dad came to save the day. Not only did they let me put off watching Peter Pan but my Mom took pictures of the kids in their costumes. So now I have some great pictures to show off.
!!!!!THANKS MOM!!!!!
This year we had a great Halloween. I love making costumes for my kids especially when they never want to take it off and wear it three days in a row. Actually he would have worn it even longer if I didn't throw it in the wash. I hope that everyone's Halloween was as SPOOKY and FUN FILLED as ours was.
