Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Halloween ~ Let It Snow...

Halloween ~ Let It Snow...

Did everyone have a nice Halloween? We got our first snowfall of the year 30 minutes prior to trick or treating! Allison was so excited and said it was because she was wearing her Elsa costume. I caught her outside twirling around singing Let It Go as the flakes started to come down.

You can see the snowflakes sticking to her hair.

That enthusiasm was short lived though. The wind kicked up and big flakes started flying around, so we only made it an hour into trick or treating until we were too cold to continue and came home. I don't think many other kids made it that long either, because we only got 1 kid at our door in the last hour of passing out candy.

We made Mariah's Halloween costume this year. She wanted to go as Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

I wouldn't suggest making a long tulle skirt if you plan on doing a lot of walking. The skirt kept bunching up and was such a hassle to keep straightening all night. You can see a better photo of it in my Instagram widget.

Mariah wanted her boyfriend to go as the prince version of the Beast. I was exhausted from our trip, so just tossed some fabric together and came up with this. He was supposed to tie the frilly scarf to make it look more bunched up, but whatever ;) The yellow side things aren't crooked. It's just the way the fabric landed when taking a picture.


The snow and cold didn't make it the best Halloween, but the kids had fun regardless. Fingers crossed next year will be sunny and 75!

How was your Halloween weather this year? Did you get snow too?

  1. The weather here was cool but not too bad. It looked like there were plenty of kids out there. The next day it rained and was so cold, so I'm glad it held out. Too bad it was nasty up north!

    1. You guys usually get it before us, so it was a definite change this year. Today the sun is shining and it's actually warm. Wish today would have been Halloween :(

  4. She is already controlling the weather? You should probably call Professor X from X MEN :)
    And Mariah and her boyfriend look adorable.

    1. Darling, you know I have no clue who that is. Seeing how I don't pay attention to those superhero movies. But pass me the number and I'll think about calling ;)

    2. it's Professor Xavier, played by Patrick Stewart, he protects all the mutants :) and some of them have the powers of controlling weather :)

    3. which is, by the way, my fave superpower - I'd control snow, sun, bring winds where there is scorching heat, bring snow at Christmas, rain during draughts :)

    1. I thought of you when it started snowing, wondering if you guys were getting it as bad as we were. MI usually gets hit a lot worse than us. Glad to hear it stayed tame for you on Halloween!

  6. Love their outfits! And yes, the weather was downright atrocious. It snowed all day here and the wind was screaming. My kids made it 30 minutes, but I was driving them from house to house. We always walk and stay out for over an hour! Next year better be nice.

  9. We were so lucky this year. A beautiful Halloween night....and then the next afternoon all hell broke loose. I awoke to a foot of snow on the deck Nov 2. I just came in from plowing our driveway. It took me over 2 hours and I am only half done. Now on to the boyfriend......you tell him you have bloggy friends.....lol. The costumes look fantastic!
