Seeing as how today is December 1, it is about time that I post the pictures from Halloween. I knew it would be downright impossible to top Ava's costume from last year, but it was fun coming up with coordinating costumes this time around.
Ava has been obsessed with the red, sparkly shoes that were handed down from her cousins, so they inspired this year's Wizard of Oz theme.
I had so much fun putting together the outfits for my little Lollipop Guild munchkin and Dorothy.
I had to bribe Ava with chocolate to get these pics :).
Dress and Tutu: Etsy
Toto Dog: Amazon
Hair Bows: Amazon
White T-Shirt: Carter's
I made most of Rylan's costume by altering store-bought clothes (from Carter's and Old Navy), but I did make the shoes from scratch (using this pattern on a smaller scale).
The fact that I didn't get a single hot glue burn is shocking.
It would have been worth it though for this adorable little munchkin.
He even had the fist pump down.
Bunny and Aunt Bee came in town that weekend, so they were able to join us for the trick-or-treating.
Rylan slept through it all (Thanks, Aunt Bee)…
But Ava had so much fun collecting candy and, thanks to our wonderful neighbors, books.
Ava enjoyed herself so much that she has asked on several occasions if it is time to go trick-or-treating again :).
Here's to hoping that I can still pick her costume next year!
