Super Halloween!

The whole super family idea started months ago when Azure told me she wanted to be a vampire for Halloween. A vampire? I asked. "Yes! A vampire! With fangs!" She had most likely heard me trying to convince Dan that reading the Twilight series was a worthwile pastime, and decided that being a vampire would be a great idea...but I didn't quite think the same. How could I put my sweet little Azure in a gory vampire costume complete with fangs? It just didn't seem right.

So, I had some convincing to do. She finally caved in and settled on being a superhero instead. (we went through lots, and lots of options!) So, there you have it: the super family was born.

My favorite part about it all, was that I was able to use the 30 year old batman costume that my mom had sewn for my older brother, for Calvin. It was still in great condition - and so cute! He wouldn't have anything to do with the mask, but I think he still looked great. :) I know, I am a completely, unbiased mom!

Love the super costumes. By the way, thanks for the comment, I didn't know you had a blog and now I can stay in touch with you. Did you happen to see our exciting news. We are having a baby...from Denver Colorado. Due Feb 4th, I am trying to plan it so that I can be down in the Springs for a bit with the new little one and see everyone again. In your new house now? That's awesome. I want to see pics.
