Big Spook, Little Spook

When Noah told me that he wanted to be a ghost for Halloween, I was not thrilled.  All I could picture was a white sheet with eyes and a mouth cut out (so lame! you wouldn’t even be able to see his cute face!)—or worse, a scary, zombie ghost (I don’t do scary).

Well, Ryan and I consulted the amazing world of Pinterest and got the idea to make a fringed fleece poncho and add a face with black felt.  I don’t make things—like ever, as you all know—but even I can cut and tie fleece and glue on some felt!

Then Noah started insisting that Baby Sister be a ghost too, so we decided to make her her own miniature poncho.  Best idea we’ve had in a while.  I mean, miniature ghost poncho?  To die for.

Noah wanted to be a “scary ghost” and his sister to be a “happy ghost.”  They turned out so cute, if I do say so myself.  Cutest ghouls I have ever seen!


Though I may not have a shred of artistic ability, my husband does.  He made his Halloween costume to wear to work this year: a Leggo dentist.  It was a hit at the office! 

I took Noah and Sally into his office to visit him that afternoon, and then we went Trick-or-Treating as a family that evening.  Noah loved it and chatted with everyone, assuring them, “Don’t worry--he’s not a real Leggo man; he’s my dad.”  Thanks, Noah!  I'm so glad you cleared that up! ;)

It was a great low-key holiday with our little spooks.  I couldn’t love them more!
