As the days till the 31st keep ticking down I find that most of my free time is spent working on our Halloween costumes. I usually make ours and look forward to doing it all year. In theme with our Halloween party invitations we are going to be a vampire family. That being said, everyone still got to choose who or what they wanted to be. Here are a few rough sketches of the costumes decided on so far.

The Mr. and I are both going as sort of steam punk Victorian vampires. His outfit should be something close to this.

Ezra at first wanted to be Ivan The Terrible. But with a little encouragement from his sister, who adores all things french, he decided on Napoleon Bonaparte. Which, incidentally, is quite fitting for the little guy.

Jael is of course Marie Antoinette. She is even wearing a red ribbon around her neck in the style of the classic French guillotine party.
And poor Mateos still can't make up his mind about what he wants to be. I can already see myself up at midnight the night before Halloween sewing his costume. Oh well, what can you do.

I'll post photos of the finished costumes as I get them done.

Until next time.......
