So long long ago when Steve and I were first married, I was little red riding hood for Halloween. I went to the DI in Provo, and found this perfectly bright red, huge button down shirt and bought it for a couple dollars and then went home, cut it up and hand sewed it into this little hood. I didn't own a sewing machine so it was very primitive but I was proud of myself for putting it together so I held on to it.
This is what I'm talking about: Halloween 2009!!
Well this year I was browsing on pinterest and came across this pin and thought, HEY, I can totally turn my little red riding hood into a fox hood. And so I did and it was super easy! Magically I had white felt on hand and I just hot glued it right on ;) The only thing I had to sew were the ears because I couldn't figure out how to glue them on otherwise I would have ;) And isn't Cole the cutest Mr. Fox there ever was?! He probably would have preferred to be a super hero because he pointed out all of the Buzz Lightyears, Spidermen and Supermen at our ward trunk of treat. But I figured that as long as I have a say in what he is for Halloween, I might as well take advantage of it. I'm putting off that spiderman costume for as long as I can!
^^the cutest Mr. Fox. He was SO hard to take pictures of this year! Little boy does not want to ever stand still!^^
^^His first time trunk or treating! He was a little overwhelmed with all of it. But by the end he got a hang of it :)^^
^^Right before we had to go to the ward party, I suddenly felt guilty for not dressing up at all! So literally 5 minutes before we left, I cute out those paper ears and taped them onto a black headband I had. Voila! I was a pregnant cat for Halloween. SO cute :/ ^^
^^Sorting through his loot!^^
While we were there people kept saying to Cole "What does the fox say?!" I thought they were just trying to confuse him, since you know, what does the fox say?!?! Turns out this ridiculous song went viral on youtube a couple months ago which I had no idea about. You can watch it HERE. Seriously though. It's ridiculous and oh so European. Ha.
And I have to admit that Steve and I literally did eat all of his Halloween candy. Haha. Luckily Cole forgot all about his candy by the next day and so he never asked about it and I wasn't about to remind him of it :)
Next year when I'm not pregnant I will have to think up cute coordinating family costumes for a family of FOUR!! For this year though, Steve totally got off the hook ;)
And for fun you can see our past Halloweens together:
