Someone told me to get photos of Evie in her costume before Halloween, especially if there is a sunny day. I took their advice and snapped some photos of her all dressed up as a little mouse. This week has been full of lots of rain in true Raincouver style. Right now the weather forecast for Friday is calling for some more rain. I am expecting that her adorable little costume is going to get covered in a rain coat and rubber boots.
If you have a chance and it is sunny in your area, I highly recommend snapping some photos right now. That way you are not in a panic on Friday before going out, and making sure everyone has had dinner and not gotten dinner all over their costume. You can actually take a little bit of time and get some cute photos to help keep these memories. Plus the lighting in the evening is great for photos.
This week she has learned how to say “Trick-or-treat” and it is very sweet when she says it because she always adds a little “please” to the end of it. I am really looking forward to taking her around my families neighborhood and seeing some of our family friends. This year is a whole other experience with her truly being able to walk 100% on her own, and being able to talk. It will be interesting to see if we make it further than a door or two before she wants to dive into her goodies, or if the social butterfly side of her will come out and she will want to go to many doors. My favourite thing right now though is she also goes around saying “squeak squeak” when she has the mouse costume on.
What are your kid(s) dressing up as for halloween? Do you make their costumes, buy new, or buy used?
We got Evie’s little mouse costume used on a kids swap group for $5! Last year she went as an owl. That costume I bought new, and I modified it by adding some feathers to the wings to make it unique for her. I am a huge fan of the costumes from Carters for little ones because they are made of fleece so they are nice and warm and have plenty of room for layering if it is cold out.
