Karen stayed up until 1 am on Thursday night and impaled her finger with the sewing machine on Friday morning to make these costumes: Clara was a princess (Princess Peach from Super Mario Bros., to be specific) and Curtis was Elmo. The payoff: Curtis won first prize for "cutest costume" at the King Center on Halloween night. And Clara was adorable, of course!
A couple more Halloweeny pictures below from last weekend, when Clara had some friends over. They made "witch's brew" out of grape juice, apple juice, and a huge chunk of dry ice, then wrapped each other up in toilet paper to make themselves into mummies. Curtis got to be a mummy too. And the brew was surprisingly delicious.
