Miss Bell

The only crafting I had to do for this year's costume, to transform Annabelle into Tinkerbell, was shoes and wand. She had everything else ( including the sass! ) to make the perfect pixie. I justified buying the extremely cool light up wings while we were at Disneyland in June, by deciding Annie would be Tink this Halloween. I'm sure it's probably the last year I get to pick.

This was Halloween morning getting dropped off at preschool.

Miss Bell and her big scary Brothers & Friends that evening. She had decided against a nap that day, and then fell asleep in the car on the way to the Casa de Kess. She woke up when we got her out of the car ( after just about twenty minutes of sleep ) to lots of Halloween chaos, and sugar rushes, so the first part of the evening was not all smiles. This was before we learned she was also catching a cold.
The Kessler Spooks.

Hoping for some fairy dust.

The Dads, making a statement.

Sean & Kritters as "The Zombie Patrol."

"The Blanket Statement."
Classic Pops. Pretty funny.
As we often do, we brought our trusty Buckley Dog with us, and he was the highlight of the night. Bounding from house to house with the kids so happy and loving the buzz of the evening like it was all for him. He was cracking us all up.

Trick-or-Treatin' Dawg, going as "Bones."

The Linden Spectacle.

This costume one my vote for the night for most clever, simple, and beautiful! This woman just wore a dark outfit and held a sheer embellished umbrella and went as a jellyfish! Brilliant.

Pretty evening.
You can see Miss Bell's wings and wheels all lit up in this fuzzy photo.

At one of the houses, a man sat on his steps with all of his artwork.
These are the jac-o'-lanterns he carved himself without patterns. Pretty great!

Butterfly Kisses.
Maybe we did get a little fairy dust sprinkled on us,
because Tink did a little better and eventually enjoyed the action ( not that you can tell from the photos ) of her very first trick-or-treating experience.
And there were even a few houses that were ADA ( American Disability Act ) friendly, which was a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed another great time with dear friends.
Good night Halloween!
SEE you next year...
