Back from Neverland!


WOW, last night was so nice! We got to actually show off our costumes instead of having to wear a coat or use an umbrella, woohoo!

Peter Pan was quite ready to go trick-or-treating!

Ahhh, who's this with the video camera lurking behind the plant?! Why, it's Captian Hook!

Wendy flew along too~

and Tinkerbell was along for the ride of course~
Most of our costumes were eBay finds. I did make friends with my sewing machine, and added lace to the Captain's jabot and cuffs. I cut off a pair of Kevin's dress pants and put in elastic for knickers. Nova and I are wearing *pixie* dust but you can't see it in the pics.
Wendy and Peter~

Stalking the "island" for candy...


The regal Captian Hook
A close up of Wendy's hair...
this was after we got home so it's a bit messy~
Nova was pooped. He didn't want to take off his costume!
I hope your Halloween was spook-tacular too!



I'll post more about costume details later! Have a great weekend!

You all are so cute! I wish you had wandered over to our neck 'o the woods.

We had less than 30 kids this year. Couldn't believe it, with the wonderful weather.

Thank you for sharing this link! Love your costumes. We've decided that Peter Pan will be our theme this year. Love wendy's hair, and your attention to detail. I'm a bit sad that I missed the WOO party because that was our theme for last Halloween.

Here's my link.

You've a darling blog and family.
