Halloween Festivities

Camryn decided long ago that she wanted to be Ariel. I lucked out and found the cutest pattern for a mermaid costume. And lucky for us my mom/Grandma was willingly to whip it up for us. She makes costumes so fast and they always turn out so cute. This was no exception-may have been one of my favorites of all time.
This was her reaction when she first saw herself. Make and hair done. I added a glitter spray painted shell and red hairspray.
She looked 16 years old with that beautiful auburn hair and her make up done. And she played the part quite well too. 
Better view of the whole costume.
And Ariel can't be left alone and so that is where our Sebastian came in. I found a crab hat and took the piece and parts off and made a headband out of it. She didn't leave it on all night but the times she did she looked ridiculously cute.
I even made Reagan's tutu-probably took more time than the time she had it on so it wouldn't get squished but it was cute! Sadly-these are the only pictures of her dressed up since she was asleep before we could even get her costume on-on Halloween night. Poor sick baby. 
Trunk or Treating was fun even though dad was gone at the BYU/ Georgia Tech game along  most of the guys and families in the ward.
I was so sad to wash Camryn's curls and auburn hue out but happy to have another round in the days to follow. 
 My friend Kristy's little boy Rowan (the kids I watch sometimes) celebrated his birthday with a Zombie/scary halloween party. I felt I needed to dress the part. I found some scrubs at a garage sale and then cut them up and stained them. Topped it off with a doctor's mask. It was actually really fun to dress up this year. It is always fun if everyone gets into it. 
This was at the cute party-Camryn making a skelton, Reagan the zombie baby and Camryn trying to be scary.
The night of I tried to capture more of Camryn's personality all dressed up. I think I did ok. 

And my friend Alia got this one! 
And got Ryan to dress up! He did awesome with his own make-up and a nasty wound!
  We had some of our friends over for dinner and trick or treating. After we were freezing we came back for pumpkin bars and caramel apple cider. Such a fun night. Sad Reagan missed it all-but it 
was also nice not having to worry about her.
