There's No Place Like Home: Halloween 2011

October was a whirlwind. I seemed to be sick for most of it, almost 2 weeks of respiratory issues, so many things on the 'to-do' list went unchecked: Zooboo, pumpkin patch, Friendly/Haunted house at the children's museum & the annual picture taking in the leaf piles. I'm trying to learn to erase the mommy guilt and enjoy whatever I can. However, I think since I did carry the mommy guilt, I may have over-compensated with overbooking a few social activities to celebrate Halloween. With all of Addy & Lilly's social engagements also came costume changes. They have a serious obsession with dress-up right now, so they took full advantage of the season. Enjoy the pictures...

Addy in her first Princess costume of the month

Dr. Lilly ready for her party at the YMCA
Addy was then inspired to be Princess #2

Minnie Mouse made an appearance for their pre-school party

Here's Addy as Dorthy & Lilly as the Cowardly Lion for the night of Halloween

The whole family got in the spirit for a friend's party-this time Lilly was Dorthy & Addy was the Cowardly Lion (perk of twins, right? a quick costume trade?)

I don't know if there has ever been a cuter Halloween twosome or foursome for that matter! The costumes are amazing - I love the cowardly lion, Dorothy, Lilly the doctor (LOL!), and Addy's numerous princess get-ups:) I hope the girls had a good candy haul and that blood sugar levels are remaining steadily high - looks like you guys had an amazing time:)

Love that you guys all dressed up! And what a great idea for the theme. The costumes look great, although I would have liked to see Jeremy as Dorothy or one of the Munchkin's.
