B’s first Halloween is almost here


For every first Halloween, there has been a little pumpkin. We even loaned out our pumpkin to my niece last year. It’s sort of a funny thing…the traveling pumpkin. But it works.

Of course, we should be thinking about costumes for this year. A spooky ghost? A cupcake? A bee? Because our oldest two will no longer allow us to coordinate them as Bo Peep and her sheep, of this I’m certain.

Bo Peep and her Sheep

But, I know I will get one last use out of that pumpkin costume this year with B….and if I’m sneaky, I’ll use it next year, too!

From 6 babies that first year to 12 now (maybe 13 depending when mine makes her arrival). I’m assuming Baby Girl will be here in time to celebrate Halloween even if she sleeps through it (she’s due next Wednesday) but may or may not be here in time for this year’s party (10/25). She does have a costume waiting just in case. 🙂
