Lions and Tinmans and Dorothys - Oh My!

Due to my laziness, I am combining Trunk or Treat at church and actual Halloween. Naturally the costumes are the same - the only difference is Jude refused to paint his face on Halloween. I think obvious to all is the fact that Ella is Dorothy, Jude is Tinman, Gabe is the cowardly lion, I was the Wicked Witch and Jonathan was the Scarecrow. Ella really wanted me to be Glinda the good witch but all the costumes were so expensive and a little tight considering Gabe is only 7 weeks old that I decided to go with the freer (is that a word) flowing witch costume - much more economical as well! My mom made Ella's costume (Marilyn's mom had started it for Jenna and had the all the pieces - Nana had to sew it together and add accessories - thanks Big Audie!), and the rest were ordered online in September. On Halloween my parents, Marilyn, Casey, Audie and Jenna all were over for dinner. Audie pleased Ella as she came dressed up as Glinda! She looked great! We did very little actual door to door visiting but we did hit a few houses. The kids (and adults) had a great time.

Great costumes as always. You all look fantastic. I love the picture of Jude in Ella's wig and then poor little Gabe.

Looks like fun was had by all. I can't say that I blame Jude for skipping the paint the second time around. I couldn't even get Reesi to let me paint whiskers on her.

You most definitely won the "best dressed" family for Halloween. Love all the costumes. Miss all you. J... We're thinking about you! Love you guys.
