Halloween 2008

This year I decided to make the kids their Halloween costumes. Merrick being in the pirate phase that he's in we thought a pirate costume would be just right for him so here he is in his one of a kind pirate costume. We had a Harvest Festival for MOMS club last Friday and it was a pretty hot day so we opted to leave his white shirt off.


Someone said he looked like a Gypsy :0( One negative point for my home making skills, huh?

And then of course we couldn't have our pirate attend the party without his faithful parrot, could we? So, needless to say Memphis was Merrick's parrot this year. Sorry for these blurry pictures but Memphis is still pretty wobbly and I got a bit nervous with him on the bench.




Memphis won first place in the costume contest. One positive point for my home making skills, ha!

Super cute! And I am impressed at your homemaking skills! I love the coordinating costumes. And I'm glad we're not the only ones that make child #2 be the sidekick to child #1's costume. This year Mason was Batman, so clearly Gage had to be Robin!
