It's Halloween!

It's Halloween and my girls are all ready to go trick-or treating tonight!

This year they are coordinating in their Wizard of Oz costumes. I adapted an old dress into A's "Glinda Gown," but E's grandma made her Dorothy dress from scratch with a matching dress for her doll.

 I couldn't let these cuties have all the fun!

They'll be accompanied tonight by the Wicked Witch!

For last minute Halloween activities check out my Halloween Pinterest Board.

The Book That Eats People by John Perry

If you're looking for a "scary" book for early elementary schoolers, this is for you. It's funny, goofy, and slightly disturbing. From the title page, the book warns you that in your hands is a book that EATS PEOPLE. It chronicles the history of the book and all the children and adults it has eaten, the steps taken to try to keep people safe from it's hungry jaws, and the final warning to WATCH OUT - because this book EATS PEOPLE! The illustrations are great and silly enough to keep kids from taking the story too seriously. While I wouldn't read it to my 3 year old, my 6 year old thought it was hilarious. I think boys (and dads) in particular will enjoy the slightly dark humor throughout.


  1. Look how cute you are! See, I knew you had more Halloween spirit than you let on. :)

  2. You all look adorable! I love the Dorothy costume, she did a great job!

    Have a fun Halloween!

  3. Awesome coordinating costumes!

    You should add a link to the new Wizard of Oz Scanimation book, as well. My son is obsessed with making the witch melt! What a world! What a world!

  4. Oh my goodness my neices are just precious!!! E's little Toto looks like Miles even! And what a hotty witchy you are! Have fun tonight! Happy Halloween!

  5. Love the costumes...especially your tights!! I still don't have pics of most of ours...and we don't coordinate this year...but they've turned our pretty well for being so last minute.

  6. Everyone looks great! I think it is wonderful that you dressed up too.

  7. So cute! E's smile is precious :).

  8. I am very impressed by the coordinating outfits! Super cite, but truly, D should have been the Wizard.

  9. I love that you made an AG costume too. So sweet.

  10. As usual your girls are adorable! You make an excellent witch!
