If you celebrated Halloween, I hope you had a fun one! At our house we had a pretty sparkly butterfly and a cute fuzzy caterpillar...
LM wore a vintage 50's tap dance costume with matching hair piece I bought off ebay a couple of months ago. It is pretty much her uniform of choice these days - if you ever happen to wonder what she is wearing at any given moment (because why wouldn't you?), there is a very good chance it is this with ballet flats.
I found her butterfly wings at the thrift store, recovered them, and added a bunch of sparkle per her request. I know I could have just bought her new ones, but I want to make at least part of her costume every year if I can. It was tedious work sewing on the sequins, but worth it when she gave me a big hug, and said they were 'boo-tiful' (unintentional Halloween joke, that's really how she says it).
Lark's entire costume was handmade by me last minute that afternoon. Considering my time crunch I am quite proud of how it turned out. If you look closely you can see the little legs down the sides, they kind of got out shown by the fuzzy stripes. I was going to make her a little pink hood, but ran out of time... no procrastinating next year! (not making any promises).
Husband and I didn't end up in costumes and that's okay. Sometimes you just have to not worry about less important things so the more important things, like feeding your family dinner, and trick-or-treating get done.
LM would only say 'trick or treat!' to the neighbors she recognized, was done after knocking on about 15 doors, and was happy to go to sleep after a candy bedtime snack. Lark chewed on a candy bar (in wrapper). We are calling it a success!
