Halloween 2014 - Bumble bees and airplane mechanic

For Halloween this year, the girls decided to be bumble bees and William decided to be an airplane mechanic.  William was excited about his costume, but I think we're reaching the years when costumes are still kinda cool, but not a big deal.  He had a hard time deciding what to be and I suggested he reuse an old costume from last year.  But, he finally thought up "airplane mechanic," and with about 3 days to go, I got all the patches sewn on the jumpsuit.  He was pleased!

The girls were bumble bees.  I actually found the costumes last year after Halloween and had them stashed in the costume closet.  They were both delighted and I think the best part was that the costume was comfortable.  Anna was head over heels for her costume and LOVED the "crown" headband the most.  She slept in her costume for 5 straight nights and wore it all day long for about 2 weeks.  She rarely goes a day without asking about her bumble bee costume and her crown.  It's a hoot to watch and reminds me so much of the years William wore is pilot costume 24/7 everywhere we went in DC. 

William and Dan were going to Baylor Homecoming over Halloween weekend, so we tried our best to celebrate in costume before they left.  We hit the Trunk O Treat at church and had a great time.  The kids loved all the games and candy prizes.  I think Anna ate about 10 Dum Dum lollipops that night.  Her favorite game was picking a lolly off the sucker tree.  If we took our eyes off of her, she would dart over to the tree and tear open a lollipop and stuff it in her mouth.
