The princess and her frog prince

What do you get when you take one beautiful princess...


And the most adorable frog prince?


You surprisingly get two very happy, excited siblings in their Halloween costumes!



I couldn't believe they sat for 30 seconds and actually looked at the camera! With SMILES!


Okay, so she had to throw this in there...


But that's actually a happy face :)

One thing is for sure, though - I learned that I could never be a pageant mom (not that I've ever thought of it... Because I haven't... Just don't talk to my family about it because they might tell you I'm only half-kidding when I joke about it... but they'd be lying!).

I would just completely lose my patience when it came to keeping everything on and in place on a squirmy little baby. Heck, I learned this Halloween that I don't think I'm cut out to dress them in their costumes! Just too many working parts. Every time we got the tiara on, a shoe came off. Or one of Lukie's froggy wrist things. Or the wand would break.

I'm not even sure how I got these pictures. It was a Halloween miracle.


Next year they're wearing one piece. Everything attached.

Ryan and I dressed up on Saturday night too. We had a great time at a Halloween party where the theme was to dress as your favorite fictional character from a book. That's a red flag for me since I hardly ever read! But, thankfully, my most recently-read book has a main character with a very simple costume.


Any guesses??


Oh, and this is Clara on her post-party high. I've said it before and I'll say it again - our girl is a party girl. I have to take video the next time because she is out of control. And if this is how she acts as a one-year-old, I'm already nervous for her teen years.

You are Katniss Everdeen! (I love those books, too!)

Katniss from the Hunger games! Aren't those books great?

I read all the time, but I didn't have a clue. Of course, since I've been on a classics kick lately that didn't help any, did it!

The children look wonderful.

Happy Halloween!

Love the costumes:)! I'm impressed! I have to get my 2 dressed tonight and out to a little Halloween event thing and I'm already dreading it. Doing stuff like that by myself never turns out well, lol!

Pocahantas (SP?).... :)- I really have no clue!

Oh right, Katniss! I didn't think of that until I read JoAnna's comment. Nice! Perfect. LOVE the hunger games! Soooo addictive.

Yes, Katniss! I'm missing the bow and arrows, but this is what I could come up with quickly :)

Oh, and Ryan was Peeta, but there is no photographic evidence. Although all he had on was jeans, a black shirt and a black coat. Didn't exactly look like a costume!
