Halloween is fun. I can take the good and leave the bad, I just can. Kids, candy, and ‘stumes, such a delightful combination. My little EBug really wanted to be a cupcake this year. And that seemed fitting, because she loves them. So I pinned some ideas and thought about being crafty, and then life happened, and I found myself with a couple days until Halloween and nothing to show for it.
So we high-tailed it to my favorite consignment store, and I resigned myself to the fact that I was going to have to convince Ev to choose from whatever the store had left.
Lo and behold this store has endeared itself to me forever. There, waiting for us, was a pottery barn cupcake costume just her size. I gave thanks for that little provision.
Then, of course, Brother wanted to be a cupcake too. Has to be just like Ev.
It took some convincing, but I was able to talk him into being a puppy, and truly he is obsessed with dogs, so it totally fits.
My friend loaned us this perfect little puppy costume. I had to refrain from smothering that little pup with kisses all night long. We took a few pics and made a few friends in our own neighborhood before heading out to trick our treat in a neighborhood with a bit more action. This little superman wanted our kids to have candy from his bag. Such a sweetie. His mom said that he is always wanting to give away their money. Melt me. Next, we met up with our sweet friends to all trick-or-treat together. Look at tiny tin man! This neighborhood did not disappoint. Lifestyles of the rich and famous. Perfect fall night. Kermit and Cupcake. BFF. My little pup pup. We had to do some serious explaining about filling your bag with candy now to eat later. But he eventually caught on and had a blast. One house gave out small toys. Such a great idea!Such a fun night! Until next year…
