Halloween with the Minions!

Once I had the idea to have 6 little minions for Halloween, I was set on it.  I thought they would be easy costumes to put together- wrong!  I could not find any solid yellow hoodies, onesies, or t-shirts in baby sizes.  Nothing!  Enter Mari Zag.  She goes to my church and can crochet and sew like no other.  She crocheted her poor fingers off to make 6 minion costumes in 2 weeks and she did an AMAZING job!!  They really turned out better than I imagined!

On Halloween day it POURED in Houston.  We made back up plans to just put on costumes at home and take a few pictures.  But, luckily, the rain stopped just in time to go trick-or-treating!  A couple last minute helpers assisted me in wrangling them into the costumes and walked with all of us around the block taking pictures and collecting candy.  Leah, Allison, and Andrew had no problem wearing the costumes and riding in the wagons.  Caroline, Ben, and Levi were quite opposite.  Refused to wear the hats and tried to escape the wagons every time they stopped.  So, I was constantly on the move!  We only stopped at a few familiar houses to keep toddlers happy and candy to a minimum.  I did let them try 3 Musketeers and Smarties (they make ya smarter, ya know) and they loved both!  We were very thankful that the rain cleared and Halloween was saved!  And 3 out of 6 toddlers cooperating isn't so bad ;)
