Happy Halloween!

We would like to wish you all a happy... and spooooky Halloween.

The kids have been out trick or treating around the entire block and have buttloads of candy. Now it's time for jammies and bed.

And they have a PD day off school tomorrow. Hmmm... I sense a conspiracy to get the kids to stay home while they are hopped up on sugar so they are the parent's problem. BOOOO!!!

That may be the spookiest thing of all.

I don't think I've caught my blog readers up on everything Halloween at Team LT's house. So... Lane went as Tinkerbell. Logan was very specific about his costume - he wanted to be the Northwest Mounted Police Officer that he saw at Lower Fort Garry this summer. The one from 1872! (Like the middle guys in the photo below.

How do you think I did?


The kids are at storytime at the library here. Adorable.

I basically took a pattern for a Mozart-esque coat jacket thing and added my own embellishments to make it look like a Mountie's red coat. I even found the coolest gold buttons with a "crest" type design on them. He looked very regal.

Lane was miss Tinkerbell. The costume was easily sewn together. The leaves were perhaps the toughest things and that was only because I got bored sewing them all together and then turning them all right side out and stringing them all along in rows. Bleh. But the costume is super cute!

Here they are outside earlier this evening, ready to get their trick or treat on!

Terry says he dressed up as a very handsome man. Indeed! :P

I was enlisted to accompany Lane to her pre-school Halloween party, so I came up with a quick costume as well. Roller Derby Girl (um... without the skates because I couldn't very well skate around a pre-school classroom without causing death and destruction to myself and everyone around me hehehe).

I hope you and your families are having a fantastic evening!

Bring on November!
