|Halloween festivities began with a trip to pick out pumpkins in mid-October. Some of them were bigger than Jackie!|

The older kids decided on their costumes back in August. We had read the first of the Harry Potter books early in the summer, and are about two-thirds of the way through book 2. Coming up with a costume for Jackie was more of a challenge. Then I spotted this leopard print tutu for $9.99 at Marshalls, and I knew we had this hat that Claire had been given for Christmas when she was about this age. Of course Claire never left it on for more than 7 seconds at a time - fortunately Jackie was more cooperative, and so there was a simple and cute costume for my kitty loving little girl.
Hermione and Harry sported cloaks made by Nonni, scarves crocheted by Aunt Sarah, and ties created by me, with a little help from some yellow painters tape. They were both happy with how their costumes turned out, and got lots of compliments from others.
|As usual, we were joined by friends for trick-or-treating.|
