Halloween

Oy, picking out halloween costumes this year was quite the chore.  I had it in my head that I wanted Poppy and Sam to have coordinating costumes - like Tinkerbell and Peter Pan (which is Poppy's all-time fave movie).  Poppy says nope.  Max & Ruby.  Nope.  We gave her all these super cute ideas.  She shot them all down.  After weeks of debate, she declared, without any further negotiations, that she would be a waitress (and Sam could be her "cooker", if he wanted).  So without further ado, here is Waitress Poppy...
She looked adorable and she absolutely loved wearing it and being able to take everyone's orders.  Sammy however, would have no part in wearing a chef's hat.  Scroll down to see his costume...

After dropping off Poppy at school, I went home to make them a spooktacular lunch...
ghost made out of a cheese stick, monster jaw (apple slices w/ slivered almonds), banana ghost, mummy dogs, ketchup for dipping and apple cider

I was sure that the "monster jaws" would freak her out, but that was her favorite part...

Sam loved it too...

And then once everyone went down for their naps, I whipped up a batch of WORMS!!!
I am the worst at food photography and the coloring in this pic is horrible.  They weren't bloody red, they looked more like browny-red, like real worms!  I brought them to our halloween party, where no one would eat them because they were so gross looking!  Not even my bug-loving nephews would touch them!


the cousins!
 Check out Louis (sitting next to Sam) he was dressed as Charlie Sheen!

Then we flew back to our house to go trick-or-treating in our 'hood...
{Waitress Poppy & Sammy the Spider!}

Marc's (and Poppy's) masterpieces.  Marc was so proud when a few families said that they go trick-or-treating at our house every year just to see our pumpkins.

And Poppy's favorite part of Halloween - passing out the candy!  She did great, even when we had massive lines of people.  We only went through 500 pieces of candy this year!!!

Those worms look super gross! Ewwww.
As for the custome, I think she looks perfect. Colin would have easily been her chef ya know ;)

Never in a million years would I have guessed Poppy would be a waitress - great costume!
And the spooky lunch is so adorable! You're such a creative mama :)

Such cute costumes!!! I love Poppy as a waitress! (And I also love the idea as Colin as her chef...) And the jack-o-lanterns are AWESOME! I just made my second one ever, and it may be my last one ever...
