Yes still playing catch up. But I'll get there!
I am forever resisting this princess inclination of little girls so when Cadence once again said she wanted to be a princess for Halloween I cringed. Not wanting to be TOO much of a stickler I compromised.
"How about the Pirate PRINCESS?" (Emphasis on princess)
She bought into it; and it was an easy sell from there, as Sage has been slightly obsessed with Jake and the Neverland Pirates this year.
It also seemed a bit serendipitous since Nouvelle is basically the female version of Cubby!
We threw together some different outfits, cut up some cheap skirts from walmart, and then fabricated a few vests out of T-shirts and - voila!
I present Jake and the Neverland Pirates!
Justin was Jake and I was Captain Hook
Sage was Izzy
Cadence was the pirate princess (yes an actual character)
and Nouvelle was Cubby
Cutest little pirates ever! And thankfully pretty simple costume preparation this year! Yo-Ho Way to go!
We were SO glad that hurricane Sandy didn't ruin Halloween! We all had a great time trick or treating. I think I could have gone all night! :) Sage is already thinking of costume ideas for next year! That's my girl. Halloween on the mind all year!
