Halloween my favorite holiday!!

For halloween this year the girls got to pick what costumes they wanted. Zoe has been telling me for months that she wanted to be an elephant (lucky for me I already had the costume). I took the girls to hobby lobby to pick out a costume from teh patterns for Isa and she said as clear as can be "I wanna skunk!"

So there you have it! This was the first costume I made from scratch and I think it turned out pretty good! Everyone loved her costume and people were constantly pointing her out and smiling. She loved it and every chance she got she said "I be skunk". She still says I wanna trick or treat.

Zoe wore a costume given to us by Aunt Wendy that Christian had worn. It was a little small by the time halloween rolled around but it worked and she loved it. Zoe was having so much fun that when it started to get to cold she kept going with Mike she ended up trick or treating for about 3 hours! Seriously I like candy but not that much. This girl loved it.
The girls got so much candy that it has been awesome for me.......I mean them ;) All in all it was a lot of fun and we didn't even freeze this year!

I just want to know how you fit all of that candy into those buckets? They look darling.

I've been thinking of you a lot lately. I hope you're doing well. The girls are precious. I'm SUPER impressed that you made the skunk costume...look at what living in North Dakota has done to you?!? Awesome.

So fun... and your costume turned out GREAT!!!! So darn cute! I obviously got off lucky because Savanna was done after 10 minutes of trick or treating! Maybe next year she will care more!
