Somewhere Over The Rainbow | Halloween 2014

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
Basket: Amazon
Toto Dog: Amazon
Hair Bows: Amazon
White T-Shirt: Carter's
Shoes: Target

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!

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
