Costume Time…

October 6, 2015

Halloween, to me, is one of those holidays that really has gotten more fun with a kid.  We’ve had a great time picking out costumes with Lila over the past 3.5 years.  In addition to trick or treating, we have an annual Halloween party with our Little Gym friends—all of the kids dress up, and the adults usually do too.  Last year, we got creative with our “three cats” costume:

The year before that, there were multiple dress-ups as the Sesame Street gang:

…and the Flintstones, too:

And on Lila’s first official Halloween, we dressed her up as a lion…although it lasted all of five minutes.  Can you tell how thrilled she is?

This year, we wanted to do something just as fun, but we had to get a little creative—well, I did especially, since I’m packing an extra twenty pounds around the midsection these days.  Smile  Plus, the party was early this year because of everyone’s schedules, so we had to get it together pretty quickly.

Lila’s obsession with Aladdin is pretty intense…so it seemed only fitting to work that into our Halloween get-up this year.  Once we settled on it, the costumes actually came together really quickly (with the help of Amazon):

I mean…I feel like this might be our strongest year yet, costume-wise. 

Happy Halloween! Okay, so the party was only October 3rd (“It’s October 3rd…”), but happy start of the Halloween season! Smile

    I agree that this year might be the best yet, simply because I’m sure Lila was delighted to dress up as Jasmine. I love all your themes – so much fun!!
