I figured last Halloween would be the last time I got to choose the girls' Halloween costumes. Boy was I right!
Holland initially wanted to be Spiderman, so I bought the costume. The following week when we went to get Eden's pink fairy costume, Holland said, "I changed my mind" and wanted to be Tinkerbell. After buying the costumes Holland vacillated back and forth between Spiderman and Tink. She chose Spiderman for a pre-Halloween party at Ben and Kiera's house. I had no idea what she would decide in the end.
Eden was dead set from the beginning on being Echo Bubblebutton, the pink fairy that she created online. I was surprised when she chose to be Minnie for the pre-party. She never wavered from the fairy costume for the BIG day.
I admit that I talked up the fairy costumes the week before Halloween. I (not so) secretly really wanted them to both be fairies! As you can see, I got my way:)
We had a super, really fun weekend. Thursday after school I raked a big pile of leaves into our front yard and we had a blast playing in them for HOURS. On Friday we had my family (with all 10 kids) over for pizza and trick-or-treating. Holland and Eden were very interested in trick-or-treating this year, and we've been practicing at home for months! On Saturday the girls dressed up again, and we went to another Halloween/1st Birthday party. So, here's the shout out to Shiloh, Sadie, Cecelia, and Sasha! It was fun to see the big girls getting bigger, and to finally meet the babies:)
