I took advantage of our one warm, non-rainy day this week to get some photos of the kids in their Halloween costumes. We trick-or-treat in the dark in our neighborhood, and it's almost always freezing as well, so it's nice to get some pics during the day (without the 5 layers of warm clothing under costumes). The girls went a little less glam this year (last year they were very fancy) and Jack chose to be human this time around (check out his platypus look here).

Bernie Brewer...and there was no talking her out of it. I had no idea how I was going to give her all of that bright yellow hair (especially the mustache), but my Mom suggested craft fur and while it was super messy, it was definitely the way to go (I have tons, if anyone needs any). By the way, she is thrilled with her costume, but a little freaked out about having fur glued to her face, so she would not loosen up and smile!
