Halloween Link Up, 2010

by Janice

Link Up Your Halloween Posts and Find Others…


Our day started with fairies and ended with ghosts…

It is hard for a girl to choose what to wear on such important occasions as Halloween, so our girls decided they would be fairies for the afternoon and ghosts for trick or treating. (Jackson, choosing to keep things simpler, just stuck with his costume for the entire day.)

Jackson had a Halloween piano recital in the afternoon, and little fairy Olivia couldn’t sit still. So after Jackson played, I took Olivia outside for a garden fairy photo shoot while the other students performed.


Meanwhile, Susan’s fairies were getting ready for an early round of trick or treating at the mall.


But just before the sunset and families lit their pumpkins, the fairies peeled off their wings and transformed into ghosts.

(Olivia and Sophia’s ghost costumes were a little long and we were worried about them tripping, so we tied them up a bit with some ribbon. Hence, these little ghosts looked more like white-robed monks or tiny Jedi.)

Jackson’s costume was scarier than either I or the girls wanted, but since he bought it while I was away at Blissdom Canada, I had little choice in the matter.

Did you know that Susan and I own two online toy stores where you can find unique toys for Christmas like a pedal car or an inspiring toy kitchen. You know, in case Santa needs any ideas!

Ohmygosh, they are SO SO cute! I love the fairies best, I think. Sorry, I linked twice. Didn’t see the picture linky the first time. Feel free to delete the “old style” one if you want.

Looks like you had a GREAT Halloween:-)

I love that they changed costumes! My 4 year old wore 3 different costumes this year. One to Awana (an angel), one to a family party (monkey) and the trick or treating costume (a princess like her friend’s). It’s awesome to have choices! And they made adorable ghost/jedi’s for sure!

Aww, so cute!! Our Halloween was pretty much over before Halloween even officially began this year – odd, but a lot of fun anyway! :)

So cute – I can’t tell which I like best… the fairies or the ghosts. Looks like they had fun as both. :)

That fairy costume is gorgeous!! And they all looked adorable as “tiny jedi.”

We didn’t carve pumpkins this year- October flew by before I could even catch my breath and we simply ran out of time.

Oh, I love the fairies too. They’re so colorful and just perfect for your girls. :)

Aw! Youre so lucky! I want to have cute little fairies!! I tried to talk the boys into being cutesy girlie things, but they said NO way!

What a great idea to let them dress up twice! They are the most adorable fairies and ghosts ever! :)

I love those fairy costumes! And the picture with the little ghost licking a lollipop and eying the scream is precious!

Oh goodness! The fairies are just magical and soooo cute. But the little pod of ghosts, Ahhh!
Adorable, just adorable. :-)
