Here is my 40's look. It's funny but I felt like the outfit aged me and added quite a few pounds. I'm not too keen on those high waist dresses. Here's the best photo I could get tonight. David tried to take a photo outside but it didn't turn out very well so I opted for the old mirror trick again.
I wasn't sure how this costume would do out there among the trick or treaters but Keiran got compliment after compliment. Each time someone would exclaim "Your a tellytubbie" his smile would beam from ear to ear. One woman looked at both costumes and told me how wonderful it is to see handmade costumes. Sure they were handmade, just not by me. I think the two cost me less than $5.00. That's my kind of thrifted Halloween. My 40's dress was $3.00 from a yard sale and my hat $3.50 from St. Vinnie's that my mother bought for me last time we went thrifting together.
We went trick or treating downtown for an hour and then to a local neighborhood. The children were very buzzed on sugar but luckily fell asleep quickly. Tonight the Halloween fairy will arrive and leave a small gift behind for the children. It was another lovely Halloween. I love this holiday with our little ones when they still enjoy holding their parent's hands as we weave in and out of dressed up children and parents on our main street of town. I love my children's shyness and the way they kept turning around to make sure we were still there. I treasure each moment like this with them. Have a safe evening.
