Halloween 2010

Every couple of years my family picks a theme and we all dress the same.
This year we picked Star Wars and I am not quite sure because my kids have never seen the movies nor read the books but we went with it anyway.

Here is the picture and yes those buns are from my real hair thanks to a great neighbor who took time out to do them for me…

Best part is the costume for Princess Leia was only $15 at Walmart.  I bought a angel costume and wore a turtleneck underneath.  My husband was able to borrow the costume and  my daughter’s costume was mainly clothes from Lands End that she could wear again….

Also if you need a recipe to use up some of the left over candy or the abundance your children have brought home, try these candy brownies.  I am making them again this weekend for my son’s end of season soccer game..
