Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2012

Hope you have a happy Halloween! It’ll be our chilliest trick-or-treating experience ever, but we’re glad for the good fortune of even getting out tonight. Much like Irene of last year, Sandy didn’t reach inland NC. So be of calm heart my California friends that sent concerned texts and phone calls! Our thoughts go out those recovering from devastation and loss and also to all aid and rescue workers.

And this little Olivia…a very cute, albeit unlikely companion to my two ninjas don’t you think? As my kids have always been of the headstrong sort, I figured this would be the one year to foist my Halloween vision of a costume onto Mara. The oppression! I commissioned the talented Miranda to make an infant version of her popular Olivia the Pig costume. If you’re already thinking ahead to 2013, Miranda booked up pretty quickly around September and October FYI.

    My kids and I are melting into little puddles over Mara’s cuteness. I showed them the pictures and it was like 30 seconds of non-stop “aaaahhhhhhhhhh!”

    Loved when these popped up on my instagram and Facebook! I want to oppress my children in the Halloween costume realm, but they will have none of it. So sad. Seriously though, that is one CUTE pig! I love love love your girl and that costume. And your boys are the best ninjas ever.

    [...] Crazy October! Among other things, we celebrated both boys’ birthdays (a combined Minecraft and Lego Chima party with 10+ boys) and I started a part-time design job that I just love. We finished off the month with an Alice in Zombieland with Wolverine to the rescue family theme for Halloween. 24 hours later, the kids are still detoxing from candy overload. And doesn’t Mara make the cutest little Alice? I’m still dying over her Olivia costume from last year. [...]
