The Pre-Show!! Last night was great fun for the kids as the adults tried to keep up...the evening started with Grandmom and me helping Magda & Luca with their costumes and then they posed for our impromptu photo shoot (photos below)...You can almost feel the excitement, can't you??
All the neighborhood kids headed over to Party Central (our neighbor's house) for pizza and more fun and photos--and then we were off!! Or, I should say the kids were off and it was a mad dash for sugar.
We hit a handful of really good streets and about the time the kids were hauling their body weight in candy, we packed it in...sorting, oohing and ahhing over the booty on the kitchen floor at 8:30pm
(on a school night, no less!!)
EXTRA SPECIAL LOVING THANKS TO GRANDMOM FOR MAKING MAGDA'S AWESOME LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE COSTUME--COMPLETE WTH BONNET!!
It is so beautiful and will be handed down in our family for sure!!
I don't think the same can be said for Luca's costume (which I made...he was a Stegosaurus)
but it worked and did the trick...I mean TREAT!!
