Wonder Woman

 It was a super hero kind of Halloween this year.  When Skeeto said he wanted to be Spiderman, I decided to punt and buy him a costume.  But I was NOT going to pass up a change to make a Wonder Woman costume!  As usual, it was a collaboration with my Mom which means she does most of the hard work :)

The cape was amazing.  Now, you might be thinking....Wonder Woman didn't wear a cape.  Oh contraire!  And I think we nailed it!

We also opted for a skirt.  Izzypop wasn't too keen on wearing underwear to school.  But we can even call that authentic :)

Needless to say it was a SUPER Halloween!  We had such a great time.  Giant thanks to grandma for helping to pull off another great year!  Love you!

Hansen Halloween Vol 3

The Third Annual Hansen Halloween Craft Extravaganza was a success!  We had a great time together making Halloween books.  I had tried some out last year and we decided that would be our theme this year.

The kids had their own Halloween gingerbread houses to construct.
We had some amazing creativity going on.  Everyone's ended up surprisingly different.

Here's Ashee's.

And Ashley's for Ax and Max.

Shereen's potion book may be my favorite!

Jess had a genius idea to put one kind of tissue paper down first, the put another color over it and peel it off in certain places.  So cool.
Even Izzypop did her own.....while eating some sort of chocolate product :)
Mom's ended up looking really cool.  She used some really cool textured papers to wrap the bindings.
I wanted to add to my Harry Potter potion table, so I made this one this year.

It looks great with the rest of the HP goodies!

I had such a great time.  Thanks ladies for being the most awesome family ever!
