Halloween 2013

This year for Halloween the boys wanted to be Peter and the Wolf.  Back in August when Heath and Steph moved to Kentucky they gave us a bunch of their old children's books.  One of those books was Peter and the Wolf. I read it to the boys and then did a search on YouTube so that they could hear the music.  They were hooked and we had to watch the 15 minute Disney film several times a day for a month!  They both can hum along to all the music and I love it!  

Naturally, Griffin would need to be the wolf.  I found a wolf mask pattern on Etsy.  The description on the pattern gave me no idea what I was in for. 

Here is the finished product! I love how it turned out but I think I have about 12 hours invested in this thing!  And it was worth it because Griffin thinks it's awesome!

I snagged this photo right after I finished the mask.  He hasn't put it on his face since... Stinker!
The rest of the costume was made by Missy about 14 years ago when Hayden and Taylor were Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf! I lucked out!

 Luke's costume was much easier.  The only thing that I had to make was the hat!  

I had to bribe him to wear everything by giving him starbursts and a pop gun.  Hey, whatever works!

This cracks me up.  Griffin looks like he's about to attack and Luke has no idea!

I love this little duo!

I had to dress up for work and luckily Kelli had a Cruella Shawl!  Sadly I bought the coat from DI many years ago!
Marc shaved his beard and left the mustache so that he could be his dad for the Wengel Halloween Party.  He was a hit!

On Halloween the boys Trick or Treated at my mom & dad's and then we stayed for dinner.  After dinner we went to GG's where the boys were spoiled with all kinds of fun treat bags and glow sticks!  It was so fun but we missed Heath, Steph and the boys and I know that GG and Kelli missed them too!  
It was a successful spooky night and Griffin is already talking about next year!
