It's Halloween Ya'll and Leah is on the case!

It was a dark and stormy night....
Well, not really, actually it was about 80 degrees and the time hadn't changed yet so it was still daylight until 7:00. Lots of mosquitos, I mean Trick or Treaters roamed the streets of our neighborhood.

As you can see we had a sweet Southern Belle and a Spunky Little Detective Trick or Treating this year.

After Paige read Gone With The Wind this summer, she went online and found this costume. She wanted to be a southern belle for Halloween so I gave in and let her order it. She wore it to a costume party the week before and then on Halloween.
Leah found a detective costume in a magazine. I looked at it and decided I could make something that would resemble it. So I got out the scissors and dusted off my trusty sewing machine and came up with this. I thought it turned out really cute.

The evening was lots of fun. Paige ended up Trick or Treating with a group of friends from her school bus that live nearby. They had lots of fun going to three different neighborhoods. Leah and her neighborhood peeps had fun trick or treating in our own 'hood. Afterwards we all met up at our neighbors house to roast s'mores in their outdoor fireplace. This year Libby (our miniature Schnauzer) did not eat any of the Halloween Candy. Last year, she did.... and trust me it wasn't pretty. Now that was a Halloween to remember.

Oh thanks, Joy! That is great. They are so adorable! I think making things is so cool. Ben has made himself a couple of baseball t-shirts with a plain white shirt and a sharpie. Doesn't occur to him to ask us to help him find one to buy. Amazing.
