Oompa Loompa

Unfortunately, the Halloween party got rained out. We've had a nice day though, lots of playing around this morning. Since we worked so hard to rush and finish the costumes in time, we thought about running to the mall to get some Halloween portraits of the boys done. First The Picture People thought they couldn't get us in, they were booked until 4:30! But then another employee came up and told us they could squeeze in the pics right then! One of the girls who worked there was so excited about them being little Oompa Loompas, she went out to another store and bought the kids some Wonka bars! The boys aren't all smiling and what not, but we are just thrilled they aren't crying. I need a scanner so I can scan the portrait of all 3, but in the mean time, here is Luke trying on his costume this morning. For the portraits we sprayed their hair just a tiny bit with green hair paint. Michele, you are crazy if you think I am going to even try putting wigs on three 16 month olds, LOL! We do have orange face paint, but think it would be a bit too garish to add. They look cute enough without all the extras.

Oh that is hilarious! I love it and can't wait to see them all together. You win for most original, that's for sure!

What a great idea. Boy do I know that Matthew loves the Oompa Loompas. Next time you talk to him ask him about the factory by Stephanie's house. I can't wait to hear what he has to say about the boys being Oompa Loompas!

ADORABLE!!!

My 5-year old nephew absolutely loves Willie Wonka and went as an Oompa Loompa a few years ago. I thought his obsession with Oompa Loompas was a bit odd. Thanks for validating it for me!!!
