We have arrived to busy season! Holidays, photo sessions, cooking, arts and crafts, shopping, parties and so much more! I am very excited this year. Haylee is a year old and she is growing so fast. This season with her is so much fun. We have been playing with leaves, eating pumpkin everything, and doing lots of art and craft projects.
We took Haylee to our church trunk or treat. (Trunk or treat is when kids go car to car with themed trunks and get candy) Haylee loved it! This was her first year trick/trunk or treating. She was not scared of the other costumes. Haylee was very curious. She was so excited to get candy. When she learned how to trick or treat, she wanted to keep circling the trunks to get more candy. LOL! She had her first lollipop among other various candy. Her favorite is the lollipop. Our sweet neighbor dropped off a whole gift bag of candy for Haylee too. She is spoiled. Haylee really liked the Halloween marsh mellows.
For Halloween Haylee was Minnie Mouse. The inspiration came from Disney store Instagram. I am a Disney fan and love all the Disney characters. Our trunk was decorated with Mickey Mouse décor. I didn't really get a photo of our trunk this year sorry! I hope Haylee will continue to wear Disney inspired costumes, but we will see. She changes her mind every 5 seconds.
Souwan and I both grew up with DIY costumes for the majority of our Halloween past. I remember making my own princess costume with the help of my mom. It was the best time for me to work creatively and spend time with my mom. I want to do the same with my Haylee bear. So I hope we can continue the tradition of making our costumes! So she isn't old enough to make costumes with us, however Souwan and I had fun designing and seeing this costume come together. Her shirt is Souwan's design. It says Ears on Fleek! lol! It is inspired from the Disney store design. I cut it close this year because I waited til the last minute to change details of the costume and well there's my full time job lol. The hard labor was worth it. I salute all the parents who create their little one's costumes. I saw a knitted ninja turtle costume at trunk or treat. OMG! Great Job on that one! Anyways, She looked pretty cute! I hope you enjoy our Halloween pics and some other fall activities around our home.
