This Halloween was really fun for the girls. They dressed up as princesses (of Course.) Saige was a stunning Snow White and Rylie a beautiful Cinderella. Of course, Saige's hair is a little too light to be a convincing Snow White so we had to improvise. We sprayed her hair black! It was really strange to see her with dark hair. And of course, Rylie had to have Cinderella hair too. We had a lot of fun getting dressed up to go visit Evan at work. Everyone there thought they were beautiful princesses. After his work we went to Grandma and Papa Ehat's house and before we got there Saige's hair color turned to dust. It was everywhere!!! Her clothes, car seat, and cute little face were covered in black. She looked like she had an abusive prince charming. Before we could go any further we had to stop for a bath. We washed her hair out and started out for trunk or treating as a blonde Snow White. We went around the church parking lot and the girls got WAY too much candy. Fortunately, Evan and I had our say and we "convinced" them to choose the good stuff. We then went to visit "Gongie" (Grandma Scadlock.) Gongie LOVED to show them off to some of her friends who were over to play games. After her house we went trick or treating to Auntie Amy and Uncle Silas' house. It was adventurous trying to keep the girls from falling asleep on the way. They seemed to have no problem waking up once we got there for more candy.
We had a good time and lessons were learned. I learned not to start Halloween events too early in the day. We were all exhausted by the time we got home and the girls were ready to get out of their costumes. I also learned that Black hairspray is probably NOT the best idea for a 20 month old.
