Spooky? Well not quite.

Halloween costumes:

Sarah - Tinkerbell from the book  "Peter & the Starcatchers"

Isabelle - Cowgirl with a chicken in the background for a more real effect.

Shem - Mathmagician from the book "The Phantom Tollbooth"  ( this is so totally a Shem costume!)

Hannah - A foxy Fox, enough said.

Daniel - Link an Elf from the "Legend of Zelda"  (of course in his cool sword swinging pose!)

Aleena - ? She could not decide what to be so she just wore a Halloween outfit and 
put on a hat for 
Moms pleasure.

Sarah had her 11th Birthday on Tues. She wanted a dog cake so this is what we came up with.  A cake with paw prints and little toy dogs all around it. She was very happy with it, of course the next best thing would have been a REAL dog.  We have told her if she wants a dog she will have to save $100 so that we know she is serious about it. So far she has $60 I am figuring that by Christmas she will have enough $.  Grandma got her a dog book for kids that has all kinds of information for her to read up on & prepare for.   ( What are we getting ourselves into?)

My Mom flew in on Mon. to stay with us for 2 weeks we are very glad to have her here. We have not had much of a chance to do anything with birthday, costume making & halloween.  We did make little time Sat. to go see the Wal-mart Museum & today we went for a sunday drive to see the fall leaves & Parley P. Pratts grave.  Next week we plan on doing a little more sight seeing.

I loved all their costumes. They were so cute, and lots of help at the party. The cake turned out cute!
