I’ve never seen a shirt that says “Baby’s Second Halloween” (or “Baby’s Second” anything, for that matter), but at 21 months, Lelly’s second Halloween was way more fun than her first.
We carved the pumpkins we got at the pumpkin patch. Lelly’s was an owl; mine was a weird face inspired by the big ol’ knobby things growing out of it.
I wanted Poppy to have a costume, so Lelly did some belly art. She said it depicted an “eggy bagel” but she says that about a lot of things, so I’m going to go with “abstract art” instead.
We went over to Donna’s for dinner and then trick-or-treating. We put our pumpkins out on the porch with hers. They looked great!
After dinner, we put on our costumes for trick-or-treating. Lelly had the best time trick-or-treating and talked about it for days afterward, even though she seemed a bit shy when she was actually doing it. She wore her costume the entire time we were out, which was at least half an hour, and got a ton of compliments from the neighborhood kids, who recognized her costume instantly.
I’m really happy with how the costumes turned out, and especially happy that with the exception of my wig, everything in our costumes was made with stuff I already had at home. Boom!
