When my Mom was here back in September, she was absolutely essential in putting together this costume. She sewed the dress and hat for me(and Abigail) and I promise it wouldn’t have looked a quarter as good if I had attempted it! The tights and wig we ordered off Amazon and her shoes are from Target. They’re actually the same exact shoes she wore with her Anna costume last year, just the pink version!
Since Halloween fell on a Saturday this year, we got to do some trick or treating a day early at Jim’s office on Friday. They always let the kids come in the afternoon and we LOVE getting to do that! It is laid back, non scary, INDOORS, and fun for Jim to show off his family to his co-workers! It’s just great and I’m always so glad we get to do that.
After a successful haul on Friday(but NO Reese’s! WHAT?!) she was primed and ready to go for Saturday!
The weather had been awful all day Friday and Saturday. Cloudy, windy, raining. But, seriously, right around 6 pm the sun came out, it cleared up completely, and the weather was absolute perfection for trick or treating. Abigail didn’t need a coat at all and it was just wonderful!
Mabes got to ride in her stroller and I’m pretty sure it was the comfiest(read: plushest) ride of her life. She is so funny!
Abigail did amazing going door to door! She was constantly checking on me to make sure that I was watching and close by, but after a few houses she was a total pro and handling it all on her own. “Trick or treat!” “Thank you!” “Happy Halloween!” Rock star.
My only Halloween regret is that we didn’t think to bring adult drinks around the neighborhood with us….
