Today is Halloween, my favorite holiday of the year; I mean, I love Christmas, but Halloween is SOOOOOOOO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!!!!! Today we started the day very early. Julian is a vampire (his first scary costume), and he wanted me to do his hair. I’ll post pictures tomorrow, when I have time to upload the pics to my computer. I “painted” his face with a thick zinc oxide based sunscreen, and luckily I have the fabulous Lyra face make-up pencils. I painted his lips black, and I put violet eyeshadow under his eyes. I also had to put a ton of gel on his hair so that it’d stay combed back. He had a black cape and , of course, vampire teeth, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
He looked like “Edward,” the gorgeous mouth watering vampire from Twilight, a book series I’m hooked on. The author is LDS, BYU alumnus Stephenie Meyer. She’s so talented! I’m reading number three now, “Eclipse,” and I’ll miss Edward when I’m all done with the book. He’s an extraordinary character…..

Going back to Halloween costumes, Maga is a monarch butterfly. She has a gorgeous outfit from Pottery Barn Kids. Everybody at the school asked me if I had made it, hahaha! I remember when I made her the Hedwig (Harry Potter’s owl) her first Halloween ever. Janette and I almost collapsed from laughing when I showed her the owl hat–it looked like a Furby!!!!! hahaha!

Joaquin is the cutest skunk ever. He has such a mischievous look, that I want to eat him up. Leli is a pumpkin. She’s our roundest baby, so a pumpkin is very fitting for her.

Jeff will be a mad doctor (if I can make him dress up). Yesterday Juli wanted to buy a spandex Transformer’s outfit for Jeff. I told him,” Juli, I PROMISE you he won’t put it on.” I could picture Jeff in my mind, dressed up as a muscled Transformer and that really made me laugh.
Well, I better go finish the preparations for tonight. Julian planned a haunted house that will be a haunted entrance, since our garage is so full of stuff from Jeff’s office, more on that later…

Well, Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Careful with the vampires, and if you see Edward around send him over, sigh…
