A Detective, French toast, and Minnie mouse (and her baby)
Our costume plans evolved a lot over the last month or so. Mostly because (as much as I fought it) the kids were/are in charge. We had a group/theme costume I was really excited for, but then Fox just came up to me one day and announced that he wanted to be "a 'tective with a mag-fying glass." So that was that.
His costume wasn't too difficult to make (I used these directions), but Sloane got really sick during my appointed "costume-making-time", so she ended up with a store-bought Minnie costume -which we were all perfectly fine with. It's way cuter than what I could've made, for sure. And she requests to wear it everyday:)
We went trick-or-treating in my parent's neighborhood, and the kids were done after two streets (just like last year) ha! They still ended up with A TON of treats, though. Not many kids went trick-or-treating in the neighborhood this year, so everyone gave Fox and Sloane extra-large helpings of candy (which I am helping take care as I type). And yes, Sloane brought her baby with her the whole time we trick-or-treated. How was your Halloween?
