Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone! We love to dress up for Halloween. Sadly, this year is the first time we did not do a family theme. So sad. But everyone enjoyed their costumes. 
Rebekah wanted to be Elsa from Frozen. Her friend, Bridgette, dressed up as Anna. There were a TON of Elsas and Annas running around. Emma wanted to be a pirate. We based it off of some pictures of Elizabeth Swann from Pirates of the Caribbean. I found all the items at the thrift store and altered them. Her friend, Olivia, is dressed as a demi-god at camp half-blood from the Percy Jackson series. Rebekah also went to school as Pippi Longstocking. Though I don't have a picture, Clay put on all his St. Louis Cardinals gear and dressed as their manager.
I decided this was the year to pay tribute to my grandmother, Loretta Thorpe Chase, who was an actual riveter during WWII. I only found out about this a few years ago. She would put the kids to bed and work the night shift. She worked at Douglas Aircraft and did riveting on the SBD Dauntless Dive Bomber. There's a video below about these planes.
