Trick-Or-Treat // Halloween 2014

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope your day has been fun and full of great memories! I've certainly had a fun Halloween. I got to dress up my little peanut and my nuggets and it was cuteness overload!
I have a blast dressing up Ivy, Madison and Grace for Halloween every year. Mom and I plan months in advance on what we want the girls costumes to be. For a while we've thought it would be fun for them to go with a "halloween-ish" theme and this year we found a really cute cat, bat and devil costume so we went with it! Ivy hates it, Grace tolerates it and Madison LOVES it. I always put the girls in their costumes, push a bench against the front window (so they can see) and let them check out all of the trick-or-treat excitement. They love it and so do the kids! The kiddos are always way more interested in the cute pups in the costumes than they are the candy!! 
I remember sitting on my sofa last year scrolling through Facebook and melting over all of the adorable babies in their Halloween costumes. I wondered what I would be doing for Campbell's Halloween costume in exactly one year. A few months ago I saw this little duck and the second I laid my eyes on it I knew it was the one! I searched high and low for some orange tights to pair with it (they're impossible to find) and finally had to resort to making my own. Earlier this week I dyed his tights and I felt like such a crafty little Momma. Haha! I know it sounds silly but I'll always look at this costume and remember that I dyed those tights because I just had to have orange tights. 
Emmy came to our house to trick-or-treat and she looked so stinkin adorable in her little lamb costume! Since she and Campbell's costumes were so similar (not planned but too perfect) we just had to get photos of them together! 
Campbells first Halloween, and the girls third, will always be a memorable one! Happy Halloween!!


  1. May I ask where you got the costume

    1. I got it at TJ Maxx/Homegoods :)

    2. Hi Kara! After seeing these adorable pictures I have realized that I bought a super cute costume this year. My little girl is going to be the duck for her very first Halloween. I cannot find orange tights/leggings/jeggings/whatever anywhere! I have to have orange. lol How did you die Campbell's last year?

    5. Hey Mandi! I just bought some white tights and used food coloring to dye them. It was super easy! I can't remember exactly how I did it but I do remember boiling water and dropping a tiny bit of red and yellow food coloring into the water. I think I found a tutorial on Pinterest. You won't mess it up! And yes you have to have the orange tights!!! :)

    6. Awesome! Thank you! I will check out Pinterest and the always handy YouTube. Campbell was so cute! I hope London looks that adorable. lol :)
