Jones Halloween Twenty-Sixteen

Friday, November 4, 2016


This may have very well been my favorite Halloween to date. The costumes the kids picked weren't crazy elaborate or creative, but I kind of love that we put it together all ourselves. Also, the kids were SUPER into Halloween this year, so, like everything else, when they are more excited about something, the more excited I am about it, too.


Serious props to Chris for making Pato's costume together. Especially those gloves. He cut out the felt and glued those black things on to the white gloves and spray painted the ears black. I feel like Pato always gets the short end of the stick on a lot of things, but this year, I really think we made his Mickey costume dreams come true. S made an adorable flamingo, and she told me, "Mama, I really like when people tell me they like my costume." She said this after the Halloween parade at her school. She waved to everyone as she passed by, as if to say, "Hello! Hello, adoring fans!" She was in heaven with her sparkly pink skirt that shed glitter everywhere. And I do mean everyyyyywhere. Poor Oscar somehow had glitter stuck to his scalp for a couple of days and I'm still finding it around the house. Did I mention glitter is C's worst nightmare? Worst.


I couldn't imagine a more perfect neighborhood to go trick-or-treating in than our own. They ran from house to house with their little friends, and excitedly filled up their bags. We ended the night by visiting the house from the movie Up, and called it good.

And in case you were wondering, I have already picked out all the 100 Grands and Snickers out of their bags, and fortunately, they have no idea. 

Oscar's Forest Animal Romper is from Little Cottonwood, and can be found HERE. It's one of those pieces you will have to pry from my cold dead fingers if you wanted to take it from me.

  1. J's mom always puts seasonal glitter cut-outs in any greeting cards she sends us. His nightmare, too, and now we know to open her envelopes over a container to catch it before it gets all over the floor!

  2. Nice post. Speaking about technologies these days. I know that virtual data room is a good substitute for old-fashioned way of storing the information.
