This was D's fourth Halloween.. he was just a wee little thing on his first, his second was cancelled due to a freak snow storm knocking out all power, his third was celebrated sometime in November thanks to Superstorm Sandy and no one exactly dressed up.. but it was the day he discovered candy! I wanted to make this year special.. not sure if he really understood the question of 'What do you want to be for Halloween?' I decided to keep it simple and go with his favorite cartoon character.. MICKEY MOUSE! I didn't want to spend a lot of money in case Mother Nature started pms-ing again. So we hit the Dollar Store. It cost me under $15 to put the three costumes together.

Bear ears and tail turned into Mickey ears and tail with black fabric bought at Hobby Lobby. He already had a black shirt and red pants.. I added big felt circles to his pants to make the buttons. It was cold outside so he wore his mittens and his tuxedo jacket..  I am the worst with a needle in thread.. ask M's unevenly hemmed pajama bottoms. But when I showed D the pants he instantly recognized them a Mickey's pants and danced around in them all day.. that for me was the highlight.. I couldn't help but join in on the dancing and squealing with joy.

I added a red sequenced bow also bought at Hobby Lobby to my ears and smaller white felt circles to a red sweater dress I already owned.

M make did with his maroon pants.. though he took off the ears pretty quickly and replaced them with a fire hat..

This was the first time M had ever dressed up for Halloween and I hadn't dressed up as anything since I was 10. But seeing that most of the parents where out and about costume less make us think we may go without too in the future years..

We wrapped up the night with some trunk or treating and check out some of the spooky houses in the neighborhood. The iphone pictures do not do them justice. 

Hope you all had a great Halloween!
