Mommy Blog: Obligatory Halloween Post

Now that I have a child, I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to do a blog post about Halloween.  I mean, what's the point of dressing up said child if you can't share it with the whole wide Internet?  By the way, if the Halloween post doesn't go up until a week after Halloween, does it still count? So many things I'm still trying to learn...


Kaitlyn's first Halloween was a smashing success.  As soon as we got to the school she was whisked away by school employees (Kaitlyn has quite a fan club).  The kindergarten teacher took this picture of her.


Do I get Mommy Bonus Points for dressing in a coordinating costume?


In case you were wondering exactly how cute we were...  we both had tails.

Note to readers: My mostly sincere apologies to anyone who is offended by the above tailage.


Despite our best efforts, Daddy was not willing to go along with the farm theme ("But Steve, you'll ruin Kaitlyn's first Halloween").


Kaitlyn also had a Halloween outfit to wear while we handed out candy to trick-or-treaters.


I had a second Halloween outfit too.  :)  Daddy was once again a party-pooper.  Kaitlyn, however, was a real trooper.  She came with me to answer the door almost every time.  She only tried eating candy out of the bowl seven times.


Is it embarrassing to admit that my daughter had more than one Halloween costume?


We were a bit indecisive this Halloween.


We briefly considered combining the two costumes.  I think it's best that we didn't.  Cows and tutus don't belong together.

Note to readers: No actual candy was consumed during the taking of the above photograph.  One fun size Butterfinger was only harmed temporarily by baby drool.


Happy Halloween.

I thought you were going to say your husband was a farmer! hehehe
& I like the cow in the tutu costume! :)

(p.s. Hi! I'm Jill, I can't remember how I came across your blog now, I've been keeping up with it for a while... I was just super intrigued with your story up in Alaska and now being a mommy myself, I love the "Mommy Blogs"! So i figured since this is my first time commenting I should say Hello! :))

Could Kaitlyn get any cuter? She is such a doll. I love all of her costumes. Good job on the coordinating costumes. Aren't grandmas the best? Isn't it nice they they love to buy clothes for their grandchildren.

Love the mommy blogs. Keep them up!

I love when families go in coordinating. I also like the idea of Steve being the farmer. She is too adorable. That tutu especially was too much!

Love the butt shot showing the tails, and YES you totally get extra mommy points for coordinating costumes!
P.S. Scott won't ever dress up either, unless it is something he wears most of the time like cowboy attire.

A-dorable! I love it! Though tha ballerina isn't a costume. That is everyday-wear. You'll learn that as your little girl get older and wants to dress herself. tee hee! (Trust me, I have three girls, and girlie girls no less.)

Your little doll is too adorable *-*
Tutus and animal costumes, this can't get any cuter.
