But, we had fun and they looked so cute. Shanyn was a hippie. She didn't want any face painting (I was going to put a peace sign or flower on her cheek) and the hat lasted just long enough for the pictures. Such a brat. lol Shanyn is a skinny little nothing and I have to laugh at the one picture of her. She looks like she has a little potbelly. So THAT is what my little girl would look like if she had some meat on her. lol!!!
She actually didn't love her costume because it was Shelby's 4 yrs ago. She was sure someone would comment on that. I told her she was silly and that this costume was cute and she would love it. It was the first time she had to wear a hand-me-down costume and she was acting ridiculous about it. She was happier when I let her wear a pair of my big peace sign earrings from high school. lol Sadly, we didn't get them in the picture. It was too cold to linger outside long.
Then, there was Shelby. My wish FINALLY came true with her. For the past few years, I have begged her to be an Air Force girl. I thought how cute it would be to actually wear a costume that had her last name on it (thanks to dad being in the Air Force for 12 yrs). She finally gave in this year and I was so happy!! We had to do a little work...like cinch the waist and add a belt, roll up the pants and tuck them into my old Harley boots and roll the cuffs of the jacket. Her dad pointed out that her long hair and big earrings were not acceptable, but she wanted no part of putting her hair up or taking out her ridiculous hoops. He also was unhappy that we put a white tshirt on her instead of brown or black, but it was a COSTUME for goodness sake!! lol She thought it was SUPER cool when he got out his dog tags for her to wear.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween.
Have a creatively wonderful weekend!!
