A little late. The boys had a fun Halloween this year, and even wore a "theme" costume.
Last weekend, we cut Cheese Puff's pumpkin. He learned about jackolanterns in school, and was adamant that we make his pumpkin a jackolantern. He was also adamant that we make a pumpkin pie with the innards.
When asked about the face, he made one and told Bob that's what he wanted. Bob did a great job recreating it.
Don't you think? He loved it. My pie wasn't as good, but Cheese Puff and Bob managed to eat it.
Guess who wanted a minion pumpkin?
This boy. Little Elvis kind of worked on his, and then lost interest. I need to take a picture of his incomplete "bully-o-lantern." We even got him some maroon paint for his masterpiece.
Here the boys are in their minion costumes. In the latest movie there are three main minions. Kevin is the tallest. He has spiky hair and two eyes. Baby Plum says that Stuart is the middlest. He has hair that's kind of Alfalfa like, without the cowlick. Stuart has one eye. Bob is the smallest minion. He is bald, and has two eyes. Those were my parameters.
We went to a fall festival, but it was too hot to wear toboggans. The boys enjoyed getting their faces painted, though. Baby Plum wanted to be a black cat. Cheese Puff just wanted to use the colors red and orange. I think the girl did a good job using red and orange. Little Elvis sat down and requested a bull dog. The poor girl looked frightened. I told her he would be happy with a paw print.
It cooled off considerably by the weekend. So, the little hats were welcome for actual trick or treating. We used a head lamp for Baby Plum's eye. Bob just put a sticker over it. We turned it on towards the end of our trek, and it lit the way pretty nicely.
The boys really lucked out with the candy this year! People bought lots of the good stuff!
They had a good time, and seemed to enjoy their costumes. If anyone knew what a minion was, then they knew what the boys were. One of our neighbors thought they were bees and kept buzzing at them.
