Amelia was originally thinking she wanted to be the blue dress icy Elsa, but she changed her mind after she realized that a lot of her friends were going to be the same Elsa. I was so proud of her for wanting to be an individual. And then she heard that Natalie was going to be Dorothy, and so she decided she wanted to be just like Natalie. :) I made her costume from scratch also.
The girls had a lot of opportunities to wear their costumes this year. When Natalie and Noah were here for Nate's baptism, all four kids got to dress up and go to Trunk-or-Treat at our church. The weather was beautiful, so we made sure to get photos in case the weather on Halloween wasn't so nice. It is pretty much impossible to get a photo of all four kids smiling at the same time, but I like how happy everyone looks in this photo:
The two Dorothys wanted to get their photo taken together, and it looks like Amelia's Toto is about to take a nosedive out of her basket here:
So then Noah and Megan wanted their photo taken together. Noah, the Very Hungry Caterpillar, tried to eat Elsa because he was STILL hungry, but Elsa used her freezing powers to stop him.
Megan got to dress up for a Halloween party at preschool on Wednesday, and then both girls went to the fall festival at Amelia's school on Wednesday evening. We didn't see Amelia's teacher (she was so sad about that) so we didn't get a photo. Then on Thursday, we met up with a friend to trick-or-treat at the businesses in downtown Sun Prairie. The older girls had a great time running from business to business. They also liked looking at all the scarecrows from the scarecrow contest. Their favorite was Olaf, of course.
I managed to get a photo of the three kids together in front of this beautiful tree:
They're off to see the wizard!
Nathaniel did not go trick-or-treating because it was way to cold for him, but he did get dressed up in his costume on Thursday when we went downtown. His costume was very warm. Megan and I decided that he was a dinosaur (although I think his costume was originally supposed to be a dragon.)
