Halloween 2014!

So are you sick of adorable pictures of children in costumes yet?  Because NEVER.

The boys were Jake and Cubby from Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  I made their costumes this week.  Quick and easy.  Much glue gun involved:

The vests are the Dana Made It Pirate vests that I altered a bit.  For Jake's I added a collar.  For Cubby I made the whole thing a bit smaller:
This is my new fav photo ever.
The shirts are a package of toddler undershirts with some felt glued to them.  Bonus that they could both wear the same size!  Jake's I cut up a bit, Cubby's I left alone:

I bought the bandanas at JoAnne's b/c easy.  The pants they already owned - although Jake's were about 3 sizes to small.  Meh.  Cubby's were just a pair of grey sweatpants - I threw them in a dyepot with some red and BAM.  Cubby pants.

Of course if you're familiar with Jake and the Neverland Pirates you realize that someone is missing.  They are a pirate crew of 3.  Just like my kids!

 Except our girl wanted NOTHING to do with this nonsense.  So someone else had to step up:
Yo ho mateyes away!!! #stevensonpartyoffive #halloween #jakeandtheneverlandpirates
Noone can ever say I'm not a good sport.
We rocked our costumes at the preschool party:

2 Jakes, a Cubby, and a bumblebee at the preschool party! #halloween
two jakes, a cubby, and a bee.  Btw of the 18 kids in his class at least 5 were Elsa.
Where Tiny continued to think that he's a big kid:
What.  I totally belong here.
Before we headed down to costume parade at the girl's school.

Her school requires that the kids dress up like characters from books.  I LOVE IT!  Obviously her choice was easy:

Her skirt was one that I made for-ev-er ago when she was a toddler who loved tulle.  But she then rejected it b/c it was too scratchy.  I saved it and it found new life here.  The rest of it is thrown together out of clothes she already owned and a tiara we embellished with some pipe cleaners.  I think the red hair is the perfect detail!

Her school did a book character costume parade. Obviously she was Fancy Nancy. #stevensonpartyoffive #THISISCLE #halloween #fancynancy
But she didn't want to be Fancy Nancy for "real" Halloween.  She wanted to be "ponies turn into people" aka the My Little Pony Equestria Girls ridiculous.  I said ok, though since she was so determined and the costume was easy to put together.

My friend made here the awesome mask which has been a dress up box staple for awhile.  I made the skirt out of fabric she picked out.  I threw together the "boots" aka leg warmer things the night before.  Her shirt is a school shirt.  She wore the ears and leggings from last year's costume.

Our pirate crew had a ball trick-or-treating.  And pillaging their pirate booty:


 Afterwards we headed out to our own Halloween party - the same one we go to every year:

I did not change costumes.  Which means all night I had to explain.. yeah it's from a kid's show.  It was still funtimes.

My brother had no problem with people not recognizing him.
A demon and a grinch.... evil theme?
Halloween around here was INTENSE.  3 parties and trick or treat all in one day!  I... yeah.  We spent all day Saturday in a sugar coma of lazy.  HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Oh yeah and we carved pumpkins, too.
Thanks to my dad and my sister in law for the pictures!
