    This summer we vacationed in the Black Hills of South Dakota. We bought our 3 kids cowboy hats as souvenirs so for Halloween I decided to dress them all up as cowboys/girls with the hats, bandannas, and vests from our dress-up clothes. It is easy to add layers underneath if the weather is cool.

    I did buy my 7 month old baby girl a costume this year. I decided it was just easier for it being her first Halloween and probably one of the only times I actually get to pick her costume. I decided to choose a gender nuetral costume though so I could use it for future children or borrow it to family if needed. I like to share and save! My sweet Lillia is going to be a cute little bumblebee and her mommy and daddy will be escorting her around as a Greek God and Goddess! Happy Halloween!!

    On a recent weekend trip to Nantucket, my daughter Alarice lost her first tooth. That same day she tried sushi for the first time and later we also saw an incredible sunset. The tooth fairy rolled five “one” dollar bills and made them look like a piece of sushi, and left her a note (along with a new toothbrush) telling her she saw her on the beach during sunset. She was utterly amazed by the tooth fairy….therefore she is insisting on being her for halloween!

    My daughter (almost 3 years) wanted to be Potato Head, so her Dad cut out a generic potato-ish shape out of felt that I stitched/hot glued velcro to the sides so it could be easily put on and off. Then cut out the body parts out of felt, and hot glued velcro on to the backs. Even stitched a butt panel to the back, leaving the top open and made a couple extra parts to tuck in the back. White tights, white long sleeve t-shirt underneath, cheap visor/hat and white knit mittens. Then her treat bag is going to be an old purse of mine.

    My little one is 2.5 months and we bought his outfit. He couldn’t go trick or treating of course, but we wanted to take pictures of his first Halloween. He is a duck and it was absolutly precious!

    What youre saying is totally true. I know that everybody should say precisely the same factor, but I just believe that you place it inside a way that everyone can realize. I also really like the pictures you set in right here. They match so properly with what youre looking to say. Im certain youll get to so many individuals with what youve got to say.
