Cleopatra and A Firefighter

This afternoon we had trick-or-treat in our neighborhood. We do it on Sunday because the larger ones in the surrounding areas are on October 31st and most people who live in our 'hood are off on Sundays.

It was The Conqueror's first Halloween costume. Sigh. So many firsts lately. He is growing up so quickly! He hated the hat so it was "Quick! Snap the photo before he rips it off!" He was way more into the snacks on the tray of his stroller than the actual trick-or-treating, although he did dig the stroller ride accompanied by nine other kids and four moms.

Her Highness was feeling really beautiful today. Did you notice the make-up? I pulled up a photo of Liz Taylor as Cleopatra and tried to mimic the look. I think I did all right, what do you think? At seven, it is all about being cute and she was feeling it and enjoying the compliments although she was worried about the removal of the eyeliner.

Those costumes are awesome! Cleopatra? Wow, now THAT's original!

What a great idea! You do spectacularly with her make-up, too. She looks gorgeous. And he looks just like a Conqueror (of fires) would look.

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

She is stunning!

That little fireman is adorable... how old is he?

The Conqueror is going to be ten months on Saturday and, yes, he is a BIG boy. (Everyone always says that when they see him and find out his age!)

Great job on the Cleopatra costume! My Little Man is a bunny, he hates his bunny ears. We will have to snap a quick photo as well...Great costumes!
