I love Halloween. I love the fun decorations and all the dressing up - but with this being Presley's first Halloween I really wanted to make sure we did something special. Not just dressing up separately, as naughty nurse, Thor & a bumblebee.....I wanted to match. But of course, couldn't think of anything and Pinterest wasn't helping me out. We could all be bugs, all ninja's....the Avengers. I just wasn't finding anything I liked - so just threw in the towel. Figured she would be a pill out in public anyways and it would just be easier to stay home and get her to bed on time.
While talking to the Hubs about my lack of creativity and lack of Pinterest ideas - because how does anyone function without Pinterest? He came up with the idea that we go as the characters from Nemo since it is Presleys favorite movie.....I was pumped. And impressed.
Tangent. Some friends of ours dressed up as Car Insurances: Baby was the Gecko, Momma was Flo & Daddy was the banged up AllState guy. Holy hilarious. I almost peed my pants last night when I saw the picture on Facebook.
So here was our inspiration.
Happy FIRST Halloween to my sweetest pumpkin.
OF COURSE as expected. Presley screamed pretty much the entire time and we had to stay away from the party....but, at least we have the 'REAL' pictures. Hahah. Oh my girl is the best birth control some days.
I'm pretty excited with how everything turned out. We put together everything in a couple days and Presleys costume was the most expensive (and time consuming because I had to hand stitch it to fit her).
I'm super excited for next year and already brainstorming ideas. Guess I should have stocked up on costumes while I was stocking up on 50% decorations and candy huh?
