Costumes
























Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, visited Grandma's house on Halloween. Some may find it cruel that I dressed up my baby girl as a wolf but I thought she looked pretty cute, even if people couldn't tell whether she was a girl or a boy. I wish although, I would have made her a snout so others would have been able to guess what she was ("Is she a bear?"), there would have been no way she would have kept that on though.

Before taking these pictures, Nora, had a blue popsicle and stained her mouth and lips. We rubbed all we could but to no avail. So, we ended up putting lipstick on her 3 year-old lips. In her toothy smile you can still see blue. She had such fun since she was finally understanding the concept of Halloween. Now, if only she understood that the holiday was over. I would not feel so bombarded with questions like, "Mom, will you make me a blue Cinderella gown?" or, "Mom, will you make me a blue gown?" and, "Oh, you can't make me one? Well, then can you make me a green and pink gown instead?"

I wanted to show you a picture of Nora's pointed hood and vest. I loved the end result. I felt like she popped right out of the fairy tale's pages.

I love the theme costumes! They looked so cute together. I am glad Nora was able to enjoy Halloween this year. I think the holidays are more fun with kids.

Oh my goodness! SO CUTE! I love when costumes match! I had the same reaction towards Chloe's gorilla costume last year that you had with Aubrey's this year. Oh well. I made up for it this year by making her Cinderella! You are so creative!

So cute! I'm sure you can tell better in person what Aubrey is. She looks kind of like a little sumo. (THe cute outfit and the head piece almost looks like an asian style hairdo!) Cute though. I love the theme thing!
