We bought Ledger a "yoda" costume from the store but decided it didn't look quite "Jedi" enough, so I sewed a Jedi robe. Sewing the robe turned out to be easier than I thought, so in the spirit of the holiday, I decided to sew an adult Jedi robe and tunic for me to wear on Halloween too. After some discussion, Daddy decided it would be too hot to wear the Darth Vader costume in the evening and wanted to wear the Jedi costume instead. So I went back to the sewing machine and decided to make myself a princess Leia robe. I'm actually VERY proud of how these costumes came out. I am no seamstress, but I'm so thrilled with how good we looked as a family that I was actually excited to get dressed up for Halloween!
We were also very fortunate to have our family around for the holiday this year. Oma Hensley showed up to the Heusner halloween parade to watch Mr. Michel lead his classroom of kids around the school. Grammie and Papa Michel went trick-or-treating downtown with us and treated us to dinner. We had a fantastic day, but now we're exhausted!!
