Every year, my Mother-In-Law throws a rather impressive Halloween Party for all of her grand-goblins. Each year, it gets better and better, and as adults, we are all so anxious to see what she comes up with! The kids are always excited to get into costumes early on in the month and I am happiest to get the costumes ready and off of my hectic October To-Do List (best part, I didn't spend a DIME on costumes this year!)
I hope you are ready for lots of links via Pinterest, as this Halloween was brought to you in part by the many creative contributors there.
This little bum of a guy was so fun to dress up. He totally got into my smothering his face in dark brown eye shadow and then dabbing his face with a washable brown marker to get stubble on those soft cheeks. Sign, compliments of Dr. Todd.
What surprised me the most about this costume were so many of the comments I read on the link. People chose to be offended by the term "homeless" as though dressing up your baby as such might be meant to be hurtful or as an insult. However, as one whose husband has lost a job in this poor economy, we chose to dress him up as such, grateful that we have a home and more importantly to be able to laugh at our own situation. You can choose to be the martyr/victim or laugh about it, start your own business and see where life can take you (we chose that route)!
Do you see this adorable little guy? He is one of our many nephews, and I was so excited to see him wearing this giraffe costume that Connor, Abi, Carly and Dakota have all worn!
