Well, we finally finished the costumes, and they turned out super cute! Ms. Mc and I have been looking forward to getting the boys together in their costumes and yesterday we were able to enjoys the fruits of our labor. Surprisingly, My Little Helper was excited to get into his costume, even before we made it to the party. Here he's showing off the detailing on the back.Things were more chaotic once at the B household. Trying to get a 5, 4, 2 yr, and 10 month old all into costumes simultaneously is exactly like herding cats. But eventually we were successful. Here John and George try out their musical instruments (borrowing these toys from The General's children was instrumental in getting our boys excited about their costumes, pun intended.)When Ms. Mc was in high school her mom bought her these Beatles dolls. She has posed all 3 of her sons with them as babies. She of course had to get some shots with all the Peppers together. The dolls were the only ones who consistently looked at the camera.
Here's George, the only one willing to have a moustache drawn on. Adorable!John minus the glasses and moustache.Tiny Paul!Baby Ringo!Hallowe'en is Ms. Mc's favorite holiday and she puts together a great party. Melted witches puddles desserts. Colorful, mini cupcakes. Caramel apples just for me (I took home a plate of 5 after the party!) And coffin favor boxes. You'll note one has a guinea pig coming out of it. That's mine as a tribute to my deceased high school guinea pig, Bun.
All in all a good time had by all. Tonight we trick or treat!
