Halloween Costumes


After stumbling across these watercolor prints on Etsy about a week ago, we decided we're going to be woodland creatures for Halloween this year!
Our little birdie will be an owl, I'll be a doe and D's either going to be a fox or a lumberjack.
I bought Rowan's costume but I'm making mine and if D's a fox, I'll be making his too. Obviously it'll be easy for D to find stuff to be a lumberjack if he decides to be that instead. 
Last year, Rowan was so little and we waited until the last minute before finally deciding on superhero costumes (that my mom made for us) because they were easy and lightweight for Ro. That's why I'm extra excited about our costumes this year because it's something I really love and will be prepared for. 
It's also going to be more fun because Rowan will be walking like a pro by the time Halloween rolls around and I CANNOT wait to take her trick or treating for the first time! 
I love Halloween so much.. 

What are you going to be this year?

  5. My husband and I are huge foodies and gardeners and our little guy's name is Gus so I kind of can't resist making him an asparaGUS. Maybe we'll be farmers? Ha, all I know is that I'm dreaming up a multi green spiky felt crown and it's going to be killer!

  13. I'm in a new phase where I can't dress as a naughty "everything," right!? Naught pirate, naughty angel, etc...so ridiculous...but I'm not ready to 100% mom it in and be Muno from Yo Gabba Gabba {LOL!}...I am so lost. Maybe I'll be a zombie - I've got the comatose stare, dark circles and pasty skin that most twin moms have at this baby stage - I think not showering one day and POOF - I'm a zombie.
