Happy Halloween!

Okay, it’s not quite Halloween yet, but I wanted to share this picture of my older girl’s very first Halloween. Three years ago, now. Wow.

We actually got this costume for her when she was a tiny newborn. It was on the super marked down clearance rack (she was born in November) and Nathan took one look and knew he couldn’t live without the opportunity of dressing his daughter up like a lobster. As I’m sure you can understand. Clearly.

So here is the result, taken on her first Halloween when she was just shy of being a year old:

Ah, I love this picture. I love it SO much it should be illegal in five states. Note the lobster’s resigned glower and slightly curled upper lip. We call this Bella’s “Please tell me my real parents will be here to pick me up soon” look.

I also figure this is excellent leverage for when she’s a teenager: Home by 11 pm, or I will post the lobster picture on my blog again! Come to think of it, I should really dig out the lobster suit and make sure I get a picture of her little sister in it, too.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

    Ahahah, that is classic!!! My mom still teases me to this day over one Halloween costume I wore when I was little. Now this one I actually picked out for myself, so imagine my mom having the same face as your little girl here :) It was a hideously cheap plastic Raggedy Anne costume with the mask that has a string to tie around your head. She had no idea why I wanted this god awful thing, but apparently I made such a fuss at the store that she had to give in! Ha…the memories! Halloween is so fun! I hope you all have a great one this year!

    If we celebrated Halloween in Australia (some neighbourhoods have started to in recent years, but not the tiny town in which I live!), *I* would dress up as a lobster: It is the scariest thing I’ve ever seen! ;)

    Anna,

    Bella looks so cute as a little lobster! Did you do anything with the girls this year? Did you dress little Vivi up as one this year?

    We had a few ‘ghost children’ come knocking this year; (finally some kiddies to lavish our Halloween treats on as we usually never get anyone but always are prepared). They were so cute with their dad waiting by our gate; we were the first to fill their buckets :)

    Australia may not celebrate Halloween but it’s still a fun idea for the kids.

    Hope you’re all well; I’ve spent a good 2 hours today researching!

    Laura x
