I hope you are all having a Happy Halloween! Someone once told me that holidays become much more fun when you have kids, and after this morning, I totally believe them. Dressing up a baby for Halloween is 1,000 times more fun than getting dressed up yourself. The only thing that might top it is matching said baby!
I went to the store a few weeks ago to buy Annabelle a Halloween costume; however, there weren't many things small enough for her. I purchased a super cute bumble bee outfit that was a size too big hoping we could make it work. Not even close. It swallowed her and looked pretty uncomfortable so back to the store it went.
It's her very 1st Halloween so it wasn't an option not to have a costume! I had already planned to dress up as an 80's aerobics instructor for my classes (to be honest, I've done this for about the past 6 years), so I decided Belle should get in on the fun!! I hadn't ever seen "baby aerobics instructor" at a costume store before, so I had to get creative.
I used a onesie and leggings we already had. Her leg warmers are actually an old pair of socks I just cut the toes out of to turn them into leg warmers for her. I used one of E's sweat bands (washed) for her belt and then bought her a reguar sized sweat band for her head. Piece of cake.
After she was all dressed, it was time to head up to the studio where she continued to ham it up in her stylish outfit!
By the time class was over, she was worn out and ready to head home for a nap. Let's pray she will stay asleep a little while longer so I can get a few things done! I hope you all have a wonderful day and a Happy Halloween!
What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
If you have kiddos, what are they going to be?
