Halloween

Sophie was Barbie as a Rock Star, Ethan was Ralphie from A Christmas Story as the Easter Bunny (you will definitely want to click on that link), Andrew was a zombie, and Emma was Aphrodite.  Ethan's costume was kind of a combination of two different patterns (one was pajama pants and the other was a blouse.  I just combined them into a jumpsuit.), and Emma's costume was me experimenting until we got it looking like the cover of a book she wanted.  I think they both turned out pretty cute.  Elliott is the genius behind Andrew's makeup.
Henry's costume was another story.  I wasn't really sure what he should be, but one day I was contemplating his cute belly, chubby fingers, and thick legs, and realized this would be the best time for him to be the Stay Puft Marshmallow man (you are going to want to watch that too, but it does have a swear word, sorry!)
I had a hard time finding tight white clothes for him, but at the last minute got what I needed.  The morning of Halloween, I decided to look online to see what the marshmallow man's hat looked like, so I could get it made, and realized that the costume has a collar too!  Luckily, Henry was napping, and I managed to find all the supplies I needed in my sewing stash.  The collar would have been better if it had been shorter, but Henry was sleeping while I was sewing, so I wasn't able to measure it.
Anyway, here are a few pictures for the grandparents.
