Here that? That's the sound of holiday spirit going *pop, sizzle, fizzle, dud*
Honestly, I feel like I half-assed it this year. We went to the pumpkin patch, but didn't carve pumpkins. Costume elements were completed as needed...not like last year when I had everything done and ready to go two weeks ahead of time. I was busy throwing together lame class treats for Izzy 30 minutes before we left for school yesterday.
Pumpkin patch? Always my fall highlight. We lucked out with a warm(er) sunny day in the midst of a bunch of cold grey days.
|There was hay jumping.|
|And "How Tall this Fall?"|
|And bunny snacks.|
|The yearly attempt to herniate our children.|
|And glorious late afternoon light.|
|Glorious, glorious light.|
|Two Castle Crashers (garbage can helmets and daddy-made and painted weapons. Bloody, natch. Bat costume idea swiped from here...rather than printing the mask though, I used it as a template and made the mask from felt. LOVE the idea of attaching it to a pair of sunglasses rather than tying it around her head!|
|Miss Izzy...that third frame is So. Totally. Her.|
|Sister in the lead. Trick or Treat!|
Izzy, of course, needed to try it out.
That? That's the sound of my favorite holiday ushering itself in with the flipping of the calendar page. Welcome, November. Welcome, Thanksgiving. Phew.
