Halloween roller skating party

Amanda and Samantha with Dr. Yorek (the orthodontist).

Playing "red light - green light".

Looking for prizes and candy in the hay.

The orthodontist the girls go to puts on a Halloween Roller Skating Party every year at the local skating rink. They have games for the kids (of all ages) to play, snacks and drinks, and, of course roller skaing. At the end of the evening, they hand out door prizes and prizes for costumes. Usually, both girls dress up in a costume, but this year Samantha couldn't find a costume. Amanda was a doormat! (She loves coming up with original costumes.) We went to the thrift store and bought a black t-shirt and black sweatpants. Then we spelled out the word "WELCOME" with silver duct tape down the shirt and one pant leg. Next we took brown paint and a flip flop (one that we could throw away, because I wasn't about to wash paint off a shoe) and added footprints and scuff marks all over the clothes. I made a "key" out of cardboard and covered it in aluminum foil to glue on the back of the shirt. Then we took a rolled up newspaper to glue to the front of the shirt. Her and I had fun making her costume. We love making our own's more fun that way.
