It’s here! It’s here! October is here and that means that we have just a few more weeks until Halloween!
I have been obsessed with Halloween ever since I was a child. I can’t really pinpoint what I love about it. Maybe it’s that you get to be whatever you want! Maybe it’s the rush from all things scary! Whatever it is, I can’t get enough of it!
Enter my children…
This is my daughter’s first Halloween, but my son is a seasoned pro with three under his belt. 😉
Here are pictures from his first and second year!
I didn’t DIY his costume last year. Call me a slacker, but I was about 9 months pregnant! I didn’t even get a good picture of the poor guy. The family picture on my iphone is the best I’ve got from last year!
I am currently DIY-ing my daughter’s costume. It’s pretty simple, but you know how simple things go! I got my inspiration from the napkins that I bought for her upcoming first birthday. (sobbing sounds!!!) I’ll be revealing it soon! (Update: I’ve finished my daughter’s costume! Click HERE to see the reveal!)
(I’ll talk more about the theme for my daughter’s first birthday in another post, so be sure to check back! Click HERE to see all of the adorable paper plates I’ve found while deciding on a theme for her party!)
