Halloween 2010

Ben, Hope and Will Dressed up for Halloween

Even with construction (yes, it is happening!) and preparations for winter we still got in time to make costumes. Halloween is a big creative time at our house between pumpkin carving and costume making.

Tree Monster

Ben dressed himself as a tree this year. There were a bunch of cedar logs I had skidded back to the south field for fence posts. Ben peeled the bark from the 40 to 50 foot long trees and saved some of it. At the time I had no idea why he was gathering it up. Notice the roots and long tree fingers!

Pink Pre-Monster Bunny

Hope made the first part of next year’s costume. She sewed it by hand and on the sewing machine. This year it is a cute pink bunny. She has devious plans to use this as the basis of next year’s costume. Think Wednesday. Such a nice child…

So what did Will go as? Why, he was a chaperone. With a fedora he would have been a detective.

See Ben’s blog for his take on Halloween.

    I’ve never seen an Ent as a halloween costume. Excellent! Or is that Old Man Willow? Compliments!

    I just pulled my Gi and black belt off a hanger for parties. Paid enough for that costume!

    I live in Davis, which is heavy on reading and educated families. I complimented one Mad Hatter, (aged about ten) on her costume, and asked if she knew about the origin of the character. She knew about mercury in Fullers’ earth, but got it wrong, verbally, as “lead”. Happy just to see a heavy metal motivation. Seems like the latest generation has some hope of being literate.

    For a moment there I thought Will was going as Captain Malcolm Reynolds, but I guess not. His coat is kinda brown…

    I love Ben’s tree, that is fabulous!

    Ben’s costume made my day!

    No little monsters at our place anymore, and no kids to come Trick-or-treating down our lonely road…

    Hope’s bunny costume looks much like one my daughter made for herself, once upon a time… That particular child is getting married next weekend…

    Good memories!

    Those costumes are great–that tree is so creative! I miss the days when I got to make costumes for my son.

  5. Great costumes by all you guys! Halloween in Vermont looks like a great time! I can almost smell the cinnamon and cider. And Hope will make the perfect Wednesday.

    We here at the O’Shea’s estates threw a Halloween for the kids complete with fireworks (neighbor has a license) and scary walk. There were activities for the adults too. :-)

  6. Gosh those kids are getting so big!
    You have so much to be proud of :-)

    That IS quite the Wednesday Addams look Hope has going on there.
