Halloween Prep

So we decided to have a Halloween party instead of a birthday party for Ethan this year. We’ve been getting costumes ready this week. Ethan is going to be a soldier (aka knight) and Simon is going to be a Hot Wheels driver. We finished the costumes today for the most part, and I thought I’d share them.

This is Simon’s car. We made it from a cardboard box and duct tape and picnic ware. I think it’s one handsome little car. All we’ve got to add is some shoulder straps so that Simon can stand and carry the car, instead of driving around on his knees.
I made Ethan a tunic from some fabric that looks rather chainmail-y that he can wear under his breast plate. Mom made him a stick horse that looks really cute. He gave it a good gallop across the living room earlier this evening. I’ll try to post a picture of that later.
Well, we’ve got games planned, and a few kids have called and emailed to let me know they’re coming. Hopefully they’ll all have a grand old time. We’ll have rice krispy treats and cookies and juice boxes, and I’ll send them all home wired. It’ll be great.
