All Hallows Eve

Its All Hallows Eeeeeeeve!!!

I have finally finished making costumes (Halloween and All Saints Day ones), participated in our church's Trunk or Treat, and put together my Dia de los Muertos altar. I love this season for how cold its starting to get, for all the fun activities, and for the fact that it means the holiday season is close at hand!

We all get to start dressing in warmer autumn clothing, which I adore. How cute is Ivy's outfit??


Trunk or Treat was a lot of fun. We set up a pocket projector to play old school Halloween cartoons like Silly Symphony's Dancing Skeletons and Disney's Halloween Treat, and decorated around it. It was a beautiful evening with a gorgeous full moon.


I dressed all three girls up as angels, though Rose's wings are so tiny they are hard to see. Here are a few pictures of these angelic children.


See those tiny wings??

I noticed the sun behind them and tried to get them with halos.

Here is a picture of our car.


It turns out we won the car decorating contest which is somehow very wrong, because all we did was rig up a video. There were cars there that were far more creative than ours, including a car whose trunk was popped open, tail lights made into eyes, and Styrofoam teeth in the opening of the trunk... it was a car monster and the car owner was dressed as St. Michael the Archangel. Super creative! And another car had a pet cemetary in the flat bed of the truck-with REAL grass! So I felt kind of bad that we ended up winning and we weren't even as creative as some.

Anyway like I said, it was a beautiful night. Look at this angel statue on the church grounds.


Beautiful, but I admit I love my real little angels better!
