A flitterific, pixie-dust-filled holiday with many pics of fairy backsides

The girls absolutely loved everything about Halloween. They went on a Kindergarten field trip to the pumpkin patch (in a yellow school bus, which thrilled them to no end), carved pumpkins with their cousins, wore costumes to school for a costume parade, and then (the final day of glory) went to a block party on our new street and got to go trick or treating.

My little brother Bobby and his wife Jane were out visiting and wore these super-fun costumes for Halloween night. Put my boring jeans and black t-shirt to shame... Heh. Here they’re posing with Ree, our blue and purple fairy who insisted on silver sandals even though it got pretty chilly that night, and Ro, the pinkest fairy in the land who originally had pink tights and then stole her sister’s white ones at the eleventh hour and refused to relinquish them. The girls’ wigs were slipping off in this photo, by the way, and actually slipped off about a hundred times till we ditched them completely and went for that natural fairy look. Also, Ro’s pink wings popped a wire (remember that the wings have gotten heavy use for a couple of months now), so we had to make a last-minute wing substitution. Eh... it was all good. Didn’t slow the little sprites down at all.

They hadn’t yet met a single person on the street, but that didn’t stop them from running (actually sprinting) enthusiastically to the block party:DSC_9733LR_srgb

They ran around with a horde of neighborhood kids for a couple of hours, and then it was time for the big event: trick or treating! This was the first house they chose (it’s always one of the most-decorated houses in the neighborhood and so fun): DSC_9766LR_srgb

You’ll notice a trend here: most of my pictures are taken from behind as I was running to catch up to the fast little fairies:DSC_9767LR_srgb

This triumphant pose pretty much sums up how the girls felt about the evening:DSC_9771LR_srgb

And this one sums up how determined they were to get to those doors:DSC_9772LR_srgb

Awwwww:DSC_9773LR_srgb

Almost forgot to get a pic of how the costumes looked all lit up. Ro and Ree were just enamored of these light-up skirts and wouldn’t even consider any other costumes once they saw these. It made them SO easy to pick out amongst the throngs of candy-seekers. Must remember this for next year:DSC_9775LR_srgb

Just when we thought the evening couldn’t get any better, Ro and Ree ran into BFF Melly, and she was dressed as a fairy too!!! The three synchronized gasps were my favorite part of the night. Melly screamed “We’re all faiweeeeeeees!!”DSC_9782LR_srgb

And then they locked hands and hit a few more houses:DSC_9793LR_srgb

On the run, of course:DSC_9795LR_srgb

Definitely a flitterific night. Hope you all had a happy halloween, and if you have any fairie-fans in your house, they might enjoy this Disney Fairies web site.

  3. Yeah! Despite the frightful store displays, Kelly and Sara had a great time trick-or-treating as well. I agree...Halloween pictures are 90% taken from behind, trying to catch up to my princesses. Every year...princesses. Maybe next year I'll get a fairy?!

    Your girls look ADORABLE. Love the light up clothes! I want some!

  4. Very fun and your little fairies are adorable. What a perfect time to move to a new neighborhood, totally acceptable to knock on all the doors and beg for candy to feed the chocolate addiction and a great way to meet the neighbors...kill two birds with one stone.

    Oh they look so adorable! What great fun.

    Have you abandoned the use of their bracelets that let us poor folks who only see IDENTICAL everything when we see them on your blog actually make out who is who?

  7. The bracelets are still there, just hard to see. Check out the first trick or treating at the door photo and you can see Ree's very clearly. (I saved it in my purse the whole time she had casts/splints and was so happy to put it back on.) I think Ro's bracelet is covered up in these pics by her Target dollar-bin slap bracelet. :-)
