Happy November, my friends! Halloween 2021 is but a happy memory, and discarded costumes litter our floors. In the bright morning sunlight, the decorations that only last night seemed so spooky now look oddly out of place. Time to pack them away until next year, when we excitedly begin again. We celebrated Halloween with our 2nd Annual Halloween Party, and my kids took it up a notch this year! Their costumes were a secret until the party, so seeing what they all came up with was fun.
Madison searched forever to find the exact dress I wore when I was in high school! She came as me in 1987, when I was queen. Nicolas even shaved to recreate the 80's look! She did a fantastic job recreating the entire look. Here is the photo she used as a reference!
P.S. (She found the dress on Poshmark. In the VINTAGE section! LOL)
Peyton and Chris went entirely against type and did a fantastic job! They put 100% into their costumes and literally become them! It was so funny trying to get Peyton to not smile because she is always smiling!!!!
Rhett and Kyrstin needed no explanation!!!!! Rhett even did a spot-on commercial for his favorite KFC! And Kyrstin was the cutest chicken around!
Flynn looked perfect as a detective with her sidekick, Draper. She picked out every aspect of her costume, and we loved it! Bonus for me...all items are reusable!
We enjoyed games and prizes and snacks galore! Peyton once again provided the most amazing dessert to finish off the night!
Goodbye for now, Halloween!
See you next year!
And welcome, November.
We look forward to the quiet and peaceful anticipation you bring as we plan for the upcoming holiday season.
Have a wonderful Monday, my friends. And for my fellow Catholic readers, Happy and Blessed All Saints Day!
