I decided that my children would be the Darling children from Peter Pan this year for our church's Fall Fest.
Andrew, Isabelle, and Alexandre dressed up as John, Wendy, and Michael Darling.
I have three kids, a daughter and two sons, in that order, so it worked out perfectly for my kids to be the children from Peter Pan. You know, these kids?
My daughter loves Peter Pan.
Somehow, I managed to whip up a Wendy costume for Isabelle on Friday night, and she is thrilled with it. I used this tutorial and a blue pillowcase to make it happen. We had a costume for less than $5.
I thought Andrew could either wear pajamas or a dress shirt as a night shirt, along with a hat and glasses, to be John Darling. Andrew loves hats and he loves glasses, so this shouldn't be a problem, right?
But Andrew doesn't want to wear the felt hat or the pipecleaner spectacles I made for him. I spent all morning trying to coax him into his hat, and he basically wore it for these pictures, but took it off immediately afterwards.
See my precious Darling children? They love each other. And I can edit my pictures to make you think they're always this sweet.
When I edit photos, you generally don't see shots like this one.
Or this one.
Meanwhile, this is Alexandre's reaction.
And those footy pajamas? He has already had enough projectile spit-up to completely cover them and require a bath.
Enjoy your time with your family tonight! I'm sure that ours will be both eventful and fun.
