Halloween and a not-spooky dresser

A few days before Halloween, we had trunk 'or treat in our church parking lot.  Eden and Reef got dolled up as Spiderman and Rapunzel; both thrift store finds for just a few dollars a piece.  I made Eden's hair flowers from silk flowers I also found at the thrift store.
She was so happy Jesus made her a pink sky!
That night, Eden and her bestie were Rapunzel twins.

I was a last minute opera singer, but later decided I was an opera singer witch.

We have a family tradition of adding on to our costumes as the night goes on.  For example, Payson started out as a nerd, then was a nerd zombie, then was a nerd zombie U of A basketball player.  
Chandler is a cool teenager, than later a cool teenager wearing a hooded jacket.
I know, original!
Mayer was a skater, then later became a zombie skater wearing a goofy hat.  
Reef while a last minute Lyle the Crocodile and Eden was Snow White.  The youngest ones keep it simple.

 I love Halloween costumes that are play on words, so Halloween night, that’s what I was. A few months ago, I saw this joke on facebook that people from Boston call their car keys “Khakis.”

I just thought this was hilarious! 
 So, I found a pair of $1.00 day Gap Khakis at Goodwill (still with the new tag on them priced at $48!) and was a pair of “Khakis” (notice the car keys around my neck). 
Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself.  
It was pretty funny trying to explain this to neighbors along the way so lesson learned: when it takes five minutes to explain your Halloween costume you're a total nerd.

Ironically, I painted the heavenly angel of dressers Halloween week. 
Nothing scary about this thing! Love it.
