A First Halloween

I've never been a huge halloween fan. It's not that I dislike it, I just never got excited to dress up or do anything every year. But with that said, I think this day has taken on whole new meaning now that I can celebrate with a little one.

I made my first ever costume this year. Yes, I sewed something more than a pillow, it's sort of a miracle. It was a labour of love and it was worth all the time and energy to see how adorable my little Alice in Wonderland looked.

Our Halloween started off with a party with some friends. You have to pop on over to pinksugarland to see all the party details and her kids' awesome costumes. That girl has talent. Thanks so much for having us, Andrea!

Thank goodness we had that indoor party to go to this year because poor Alice in Wonderland would have been lost under layers and layers of clothing. The obligatory "outdoor costume" was definitely needed this year. It was a cold one. We made it to about three family members houses before calling it a night.

I think I might just like this Halloween thing now, hope you all had a great night too!!

  2. You did a lovely job on her costume. I'm in awe of you DIY-ers! I can barely sew on a button. :) And I feel the same way as you - Halloween means so much more now with kids.

    I haven't really bothered with the whole costume thing either for the last number of years, but seeing my nephew in his adorable little elephant costume was definitely a sweet moment ;)

  6. This girl is so beautiful, and is so big. Seems that she is about to walk.
    The blue was in fact a good choice combines so well with her blue eyes.
