Halloween Costume Ideas

October 4, 2011

nancy Drew

I’m sorry to say that for the last few years G and I have basically sat out Halloween. Costume-wise I mean. (Except for last year, when we quite literally sat it out.)  We’ve decided we’re bringing Halloween fun back this year. And I’m going to be Nancy Drew. (What? Fun doesn’t = Nancy Drew to you?)

Like a good little detective, I’m pawing through old covers to perfect my look. She looks pretty foxy above, but I was thinking more classic “Nancy”. In my opinion that’s closer to these:

Nancy Drew

Sweater + white shirt collar+ skirt + bobby socks and loafers. My hair is pretty long, so I think I’ll curl it and wear it in a pony tail.

Or maybe down, like this?

Plus a magnifying glass. Think I need to hold a Nancy Drew book too? Now if only I had a Ned handy… or a Hardy Boy!

Did you have a favorite book from the series? I totally read them all one summer, but haven’t picked one up in forever. Think it’s time for a visit.

Halloween was fun…

We had such a good time trick-or-treating!  The night began with a pre-halloween Adoption Day Anniversary Party, which meant, among other things, a humongous, delicious cake!  Matilda sized, it was noted.  I felt so lucky to be there and to get to see such a happy family.  

Then, all sugared up, they scrambled into their costumes. I really tried to get cute photos, but mysteriously no one could hold still.  And we were out the door!  

Our friends’ neighborhood is apparently a trick-or-treating hot spot.  People were arriving in cars!  Needless to say, there were some very impressive decorations.  This photo does not do this house justice:

Then it was back home to admire the piles of candy.  

 

         

 

Everybody ready to vote tomorrow….?

Halloween!

Happy Halloween everybody!  Its our first Halloween in Providence and we’re gonna keep it pretty quiet.  

Aren’t these photos pretty?  They’re from our trip to Vermont last weekend.  It poured the first day, but then looked like this the rest of the time.  Amazing…

Anyhow, we’re out the door to go trick or treating with my friends kids!  Hope everyone has as much fun as we will!
