Ahh, the joys of selecting a Halloween costume.
Baby jaguar was the obsession of the moment for Kitty. Her kitty costume from last year was easily re-named a baby jaguar costume, and it still fit nicely. Done and done.
Boo's costume was a little trickier. How To Train Your Dragon was her favorite movie at the time, and she wanted to be the black dragon (is his name Toothless?). I'm afraid that was stretching my creative skills a little too far, and Grandma (AKA the Costume Genius) is out of the country. They do, of course, make How To Train Your Dragon costumes for purchase, for a mere $85. Not going to happen, my friend.
Fortunately, a friend offered to loan us their dragon costume, and Boo kindly agreed to be a green dragon rather than a black one. Crisis averted.
Boo has nothing but sympathy for poor, helpless stuffed animals with no Halloween costume, and talked me into making her dog a witch costume. It took me longer than it needed to, but I managed to cobble together a black skirt and cape from leftover fabric from previous years' costumes. We completed the look with a cute little witch hat that the amazing Grandma made for newborn Kitty a few years ago.
Another successful Halloween!

Kitty is always delighted with digging out pumpkin guts and turning a pumpkin into a kitty face.
This year, Boo was more cheerful about cleaning out the pumpkin, and had a plan for her pumpkin carving.
Kitty, with her kitty pumpkin.
And Boo with her boo! pumpkin.

We did some apple picking and picture posing while we were at it.
And I came home with the cutest pumpkin in the patch:
