Hap-pea Halloween!

Hap-pea Halloween everyone!



Is it any surprise that for Penelope's first Halloween she is a sweet pea? How perfect is that?!

Even less surprising is the fact that since we chose her name and I began calling her my sweet P in utero, I knew this would be a perfect first Halloween costume.

Though I had dreams of sewing her costumes through the coming years, I'm not quite there yet. Maybe someday. After doing a bit of Googling, I had a really hard time finding a sweet pea costume for an infant that wasn't a bunting costume. All searches came back as either bunting or adult costumes. So when my mom came across this little number on Hautelook a couple of months ago, I ordered it immediately. They had one size (6-12 months...isn't that kind of a big range? makes zero sense to me...) so I held my breath until it arrived. And not only was it the cutest thing in the world, but it fit perfectly. Flash sale for the win!

Of course, no holiday or milestone would be complete without a little photoshoot and editing. And even more fun were the out takes while trying to just get one good shot of Penelope in all of her pea glory.



Oh and in case you are wondering, I edited the photos and created the collage - with type! - by using Pic Monkey.

Though Penelope is too young for any real trick or treating today, were excited to possibly watch Toy Story of Terror with her this evening if she's amenable. I do know that if I have to watch Mickey's Treat one more time, my family will experience my own terror.

Oh and as for her little pumpkin...I promised I'd share what we ended up doing with it so here you go:

Mom's grand plans for cute hand prints kind of ended up as a mess of paint on the pumpkin and on the baby. But it was still fun and we got one light handprint on there. Penelope was less than amused, but maybe next year ;)

So what does everyone have planned for today? Any fun costumes to share?

I'm excited to ring in Halloween evening with some episodes of The Walking Dead with a few pieces of Halloween candy in tow...seems like a fitting plan, no?
