A Dr. Seuss Halloween

The girls are really into books lately and they love their Dr. Seuss books. I was trying to think of a cute idea for the twins for Halloween and this just came to me!
Thing 1 and Thing 2
with Nathan starring as the Cat in the Hat
It frustrates me to no end that I didn't get a decent picture of all 3 of them!
I made the bow tie and the hat and just sewed together 2 white felt ovals and pinned them to a black onesie and black pants for his belly. He has a black boa for a tail.
Nathan and cousin Luke
Cutest Cat in the Hat you ever saw- holding his own tail.
Thing 1 and Thing 2!
The girls costumes were super simple. Just bought the red pants and turtle necks from Wal-Mart and sewed together 2 white felt circles. I used iron-on adhesive to adhere them to the shirts and wrote "Thing 1" and "Thing 2" on each one with black puffy paint and voila! They loved that they got to have blue hair. All together I spent less than $25 on all 3 costumes and the pants the girls can wear all winter!
I hate that they refuse to smile for pictures
Here is some more Halloween fun-
The girls with their little pumpkins after Daddy finished carving them
Russell's pumpkin is evil looking- but he was proud of it.

Stefani said that the girls were cute. Love the idea and having Nathan with the theme. You and Russell now need to dress up.

They are so cute! I wish I had the energy you did to put towards Halloween. We were slackers this year. I always have to bribe Bayer with candy to cooperate in pictures!
