Halloween @ Our House

Although I am hesitant to admit this, Halloween has never ranked in one of my favorite holidays throughout the year. While I certainly love a festive gathering, and pretty much any excuse to celebrate, I have never been one of those people who count down the days to the end of October. I assume my aversion to the Halloween holiday could be due to my extreme fashion obsession, as I would rather wear a cute outfit from Forever 21 than dress up as Dorothy or a sexy bumblebee (although I have been known to have a few creative costumes in my 28 years ... ).
However, after becoming a mom to my sweet Waverly Maye, my feelings towards October 31st have quickly changed. This year, I couldn't wait to take my sweet girl to the pumpkin patch, to carve a pumpkin that represented her, and to dress her up in what would be the first costume of many to come (I am pretty sure I have been dreaming about it since the second trimester of my pregnancy). And although she won't remember this first official holiday since she was born, I am obviously fully it so she can look back and see exactly all it entailed.

Waverly's First Halloween Costume:  A Candy Corn!  Waverly's grandmother, Bella, made it for her.  The yarn for the entire outfit & hat were purchased at Micheal's for under $10.00.  I added a white long-sleeve onsie from Carters. a white pair of tights from Target, and of course, created a bow with ribbon.
