Well, now that we're into December. . . .
Wait! Where did November go!?! Holy cow!
I figure I really need to sit down & update my blog. This is, after all, my journal. I feel really behind & I hate that feeling. So here we go. Expect a bazillion things from October, November, & now December heading your way over the next couple of days.
Let's start with our Halloween. You know how much I ADORE Halloween & everything that comes with it. I at least did my blog posts of all my SPOOKY meals. Well, I plan our Halloween costumes all year long. I love it. This year the kids REALLY wanted to do Despicable Me 2. They loved it when we saw it in the theater, & really the costumes weren't that hard so I got right to work.
This was our final product:
Despicable Me 2
And this is what the floor of my bedroom looked like for most of September & all of October. My poor husband is a saint to put up with my madness.
So without much further ado. . . let's take a looksie at those costumes up close:
|Agent Lucy Wilde: a secret agent for the anti-|
villain league, Gru's partner & eventual wife.
|Yup, that's me under that red hair. Crazy right?|
It was SO FUN.
|And everybody knows Gru, the world's|
most famous villain. . . turned good guy/
|Trek was all about shaving his head & gluing|
a prosthetic nose on for this role. It made it
|And who could forget the three lovable orphans|
that Gru adopts? Margo: the eldest sister who is smart
& responsible. Edith: the middle tomboy who
loves getting dirty & playing hard. And little Agnes:
the baby of the bunch, full of life & happiness.
|The girls fit their respective roles perfectly.|
|Taya was the perfect Agnes. Full of life, energy,|
excitement, & smiles.
|Lorien as Edith. A total tomboy, yet loves pink.|
She REALLY got into her part.
|And Cadence as Margo. Smart as a whip &|
|And if we're doing Despicable Me, we have to have|
We did 2 yellow minions & 1 purple minion.
|Canyon made the cutest minion EVER.|
|Craiger (aka Monster at our house) was|
of course chosen to don the purple minion
costume. He was upset here because I hadn't
sewn the "hair" on yet.
|And the purple minion costume WITH HAIR.|
|Bladen is always just so happy to be dressed up.|
The night before Halloween our church had a Halloween party so we got all dolled up & had a blast as a family there.
|"Is this annoying?"|
|"It's SO FLUFFY!"|
