Uly Chicken
I looked through a ton of costumes and narrowed them down to about half a dozen choices, from which Ulysses selected this chicken costume. He most definitely did not want to be an octopus, let me tell you. We talked about it for a couple of weeks and it’s surprising how many strangers asked him what he would be for Halloween, to which he would respond, “A CHICKEN!” and they would giggle.

Chicken and Fox
So naturally I decided I would be a fox. We were quite the pair. And I still can’t get over how cute he was in that little chicken costume.

Pumpkin Toss
A friend and I worked super hard to pull of a somewhat last-minute Costume Carnival for about 60 people! We had carnival games–the pumpkin toss (thinking about posting a little tutorial for these; they were fun and easy to make), a fish-for-a-spider game, a craft station, a photo booth, and a cake walk. How do I love a cake walk! The dear woman in charge made sure there was a cake for each person that participated, too!

Treat Table
We also had a baked potato dinner, costume contest (with these for trophies), and this treat table for each kid to pack a bag on their way out (bag tutorial here), as if they hadn’t been spoiled enough already. It was a truly lovely evening and I’m hoping we can make it a tradition until our kids are so old it’s lame.
