We had a theme

I have a mild obsession with coordinating outfits so when I was out shopping some time in September and saw a lion and a scarecrow costume my heart started to beat a little bit faster because I knew that I could easily find Dorothy and dress my children in THEME for Halloween.

My mind started wandering to what character I could talk Ashlyn into and Mark could be the Tin Man and I could...

and then I came back to reality, bought the costumes, ordered a Dorothy dress and sparkly red shoes and was completely satisfied with my Halloween plan.

I also had dreams of turning our choo-choo wagon into the yellow brick road but reality hit yet again that I am lucky to get dressed each day so I decided I would just be happy with costumes and move on.

The only glitch in my plan was a last minute missing red bow and a scarecrow who could barely stand (or raise his arms) because he was so tightly packed with winter gear.

The finished product... (these pictures are not the best, no one was interested in standing still)

 The Lion
the Scarecrow
and Dorothy

Oh and here are a few Scarecrow mishaps...
can you find him??



Luckily we counted children and kept digging him out... apparently he was too stuffed to move freely.

It takes dedication to stick to Mommy's theme ;)


We are part of the Halloween costume parade over at SITS, head over for many many more costumes!

So adorable! My favorite costume from childhood was getting to go as Dorothy with my siblings and cousins rounding out the cast of characters. Yay for red jelly shoes. =)

Precious! Audrey wore the same red glitter shoes from Target with her Minnie Mouse costume and my husband said they looked like they were more for a Dorothy costume...he was right!
