In a Galaxy Far, Far Away

Today is November 3rd and I’m just now getting around to sharing our Halloween pictures. Three days doesn’t SEEM like a huge lapse of time to share an event. But when you have friends who are legit putting up Christmas trees and jamming to Christmas music, Halloween is no longer relevant. But here I am, sharing anyway.

So if you can suffer through a few more pictures of kids in costumes, I have a few I can share.

This year the kids dressed up as Star Wars characters (so original, I know!) Last year, on the day after Halloween, I came up with a fun family themed costume. But then I had a baby and it never came together. So we recycled their costumes that I made for them 2 years ago. Next year I hope to make my family costume dreams come true!

Liam as Luke from “Return of the Jedi.” Most people thought he was Darth Vader.//Kai as Obi-wan Kenobi. Some people thought he was Luke–shows how amazing I am at making costumes.


Kingston as Yoda.//Evangeline as Princess Leia.


We had two new additions to our crew since the last time we did the Star Wars theme. I had been wanting these little Chewbacca jammies for Desmond anyway so it gave me the perfect excuse to buy them.//The kids really wanted me to make a BB-8 onesie for Clementine. So on the night before Halloween, I was falling asleep on the couch and had to force myself to pry my eyes open and slave away on her costume, late into the night (aka-whipped it up in about 10 minutes at 8pm.) We affectionately gave her the nickname “bae-bae 8.”


Don even went all out this year and put on his Darth Vader shirt. 


A little peek into how most of our pictures go with this little Wookie lately–darting off as soon as I go to take the picture.


And of course I would get them all looking and smiling while they are dressed in costumes and not when took our family pictures the night before. And also slightly blurry, I think. I’m having issues with my contacts lately and EVERYTHING is that’s fun.


Like the past 2 years, this year we went to a Fall Festival on Halloween night. There are bounce houses, face painting, pony rides, etc. And the kids play games to win candy. And if you look below, you’ll see that it pays off to have 6 kids 😉

So now we can move on from Halloween and start looking forward to the other holidays. But no Christmas stuff for me yet because Christmas = cold and snow…and I’m not ready for that. But you do you. If you’re ready to deck the halls and sing Christmas carols, then go for it! Hope you’re having a good week!
