In any case, it's done. Yesterday I spent most of the day in L's classroom, helping with their party, and reading a book to the kids. I picked up the girls from school so that we would have extra time to work on our pumpkins before candy time!
This year, J went for a French Monsieur, complete with moustache...ooh la la! L tried different shapes and patterns on hers. I went for more of a lantern effect.
L chose a Bollywood Dancer costume early on, but decided against it once she realized that her belly was showing (refused to wear a shirt under.) Luckily, on my little outing with the Ladies a couple of weeks ago, I found a cute little colonial style dress at the Goodwill. It fit her perfectly, and along with a hat made by Aunt C before our trip to Williamsburg a couple of years ago, it made a great costume! J had her heart set on Pikachu, and froze out there in the trenches!
We had a good time, the girls slept well last night, but JP and I were so busy cleaning up multiple messes, that we forgot to raid the candy stashes once the girls were in bed. Oh well, there's always tonight!
