halloween recap

As I’ve previously lamented, Halloween has turned into like a month-long holiday. Parties, parades, fall fests, trunk or treats. You name it; there are costumes required. Last year, I went the cheap and easy route and got multiple costumes for Holdy. This year, I just went with one amazing costume for Holden and made it the theme for all of us.

Rockford Peach, baseball player, Rosie the Riveter @ohbotherblog

I found the Rockford Peach costume on Etsy (SilverThreads by Ronda). GB’s baseball player jammies came from the consignment store. For my Rosie the Riveter costume, I used a Chambray shirt I already owned and a pink bandanna that was Holdy’s that literally came from a gas station.

Given that she hated her Anna dress from Disney on Ice so much…

… I was really glad that Holden liked her costume.

And GB, well he likes everything.

Last weekend, we got dressed up and attended a Pumpkin Fest at our city’s farmers’ market.

The kids helped me get ready for the Masquerade Ball my organization hosted.

Holden refused her Anna dress again on Halloween day to go to her grandparents’ house, so we went with an ensemble of her own choosing.

I was a little jealous, so I got in on the TMNT shirt action as well.

Before Trick or Treat started, Holden was in a bit of a mood.

I told her there’s no crying in baseball and she got it together.

So we headed out to her first time Trick or Treating, stopping at a Trunk or Treat first.

She was surprisingly well behaved the whole evening and was excited to say “Trick or Treat” and “thank you.”

GB was the official candy hander-outer at my house (with his Duke).

I’m happy to report that Holden got lots of good chocolate for me to steal… and a few lollipops–her favorite.

And, of course, there’s always that one house…
