Growing up, my Mom always made our Halloween Costumes so when the grandchildren came along, she got her patterns and sewing kit out and went to town. For Nadia's size, I had handmade costume choices between her being a duck, a clown, or a cow...
I chose the cow!
I believe all 3 of my children and the other cousins have all worn this costume!
Could she be any cuter???
Even the view from the back is as cute-as-can-be!
Along with the farm animal we also had a rock star...
...and a purple princess. Josi was supposed to wear this costume last year but she got sick and had to stay inside with me to hand out candy.
Is she looking more like a teenage princess or what???
Allen didn't dress up this year, but his dog did so he still got some goodies in his "doggie bag".
Allen thought he might try having the dog lead the boy with the bag over his head. That only lasted until A.J. took off after a squirrel (he may be dressed as a hot dog but he's a hunter at heart!)
Costumes or no costumes, I'm thankful I get to be Mommy to all (5) of them. Yes, A.J. is part of the family and is still the one having the hardest time adjusting to Nadia
intruding joining our family.
About this time Nadia is thinking that being a princess is a much better deal than having to be a cow.
Josi reminds her that she has to bide her time until she's bigger and can give input into the costume decisions. Until then...it's all up to Mommy (and whatever Nonna has put together).
"OK, I'll wait to be a princess but this cow hood thingie has got to go!"
