alice and the queen of hearts

Getting ready for trick-or-treat.

Stephanie picked Alice. She enjoyed being Alice so much for her drama club play, she wanted to do it again.

At first Heather wanted to be the king. Then she wanted to be a mummy. We suggested the Queen of Hearts and she was sold. We didn't have school on Halloween. I spent the entire day sewing her costume. This is the first year I made their costumes. Heather commented that this year her costume isn't itchy like the ones we bought in the past. They also asked if I'd make their costumes next year. We'll see. Maybe with an earlier start.

What a beautiful queen!

Such a precious Alice.

We took the kids trick-or-treating in our neighborhood. We noticed there weren't as many houses with their lights on as in the past. We also noticed not as many kiddos out either. I did run into more people I knew from school than ever this year. 

We returned home hot and tired. Normally, Halloween night is the night when the cold moves in. Not so tonight. It was nice, but ended up pretty warm with all the walking. Poor Heather had long sleeves! 

We let the kids gorge themselves and we all went to bed on a candy high.

P.S. Daddy fashioned the heart wand for Heather. :)
