One of the exciting things about having two kids is that I was finally able to pick out a Halloween "theme" of sorts. I knew that I wanted them to match or go together in some way. My first thought was Elsa and Olaf since we already had an Elsa costume, but then I remembered that every little girl would be Elsa for Halloween. And we try to be slightly original.
Then sticking with the Disney theme (since she wanted to be a princess), we thought we would do Cinderella and Gus. This would have been super cute, but the only Gus costume I found was just a onesie from the Disney store for $40. If it had been an actual costume, I probably would have done it, but I couldn't stomach that price for a shirt.
As I was going through Emmy's closet inspiration struck me. Mom had bought her this little saloon girl costume at Cracker Barrel after Halloween last year, and it was still hanging in the closet. The more that I looked at it, the more it looked like Little Red Riding Hood, and our theme was born.
A little trip to my good friend eBay had this little wolf costume making a bee line for our front door, and just like that, we were in business.
I knew that I would not get to spend a ton of time with them on Halloween since Interact was working the city-wide trick-or-treat, so we took photos ahead of time. I am super biased, but I think they are adorable.
Little Red Riding Hood was carrying her basket on the way to her grandmother's house.
When she spotted something off in the distance.
It was the Big Bad Wolf.
He was super scary, and he did not smile once.
And his big blue eyes did not shine at all.
But LRRH thought that she could change her story. So she made friends with the wolf, and for now they are living happily ever after. At least until he starts playing with her toys.
I also have a few photos that I got when they came through the line at Trunk-or-treat.
It was a really fun night, and although I missed getting to walk around with them while they trick-or-treated, I did have a great time handing out candy to the masses.
Bradley took a few photos too. I'm training him well.
Then I found these photos from before I left to go hand out candy! Score!
The best part was coming home and hanging out..and enjoying some of the fruits of their labors.
