A family that loves Halloween together, stays together! haha.
Who doesn’t love trick-or-treating? This year we decided to make some treats for our new neighbors and there’s no trick! As much as I’d like to make extravagant pastries from scratch, this momma is taking the easy way out. The best part is that it is simple and wallet-friendly!
Everything used to make these delicious cupcakes was purchased at Walmart! For more details on how these came to be, check out DIY Halloween Cupcakes.
Not too bad, if you ask me!
If I could dress up every day, I would!
Last year’s Halloween was our first with baby CJ and still by then, at 8 months old, he was too little for trick or treating. However, that did not stop us from getting adorable pictures in his turtle costume!
Now that baby CJ is walking, we will be trick or treating for the first time! Because he still doesn’t understand accessories, I wanted to make his costume as simple as possible. I found an adorable lion hoodie at Target on sale, and fingers crossed, he does not remove it because as of now, he sometimes freaks out when we try to put hats on his head.
At least he stood still for the photo-op! Haha.
I decided to figure out a costume for me so that if baby CJ does not have it with his, at least he’ll still get candy and we’ll get to walk around and maybe encourage him to wear the hoodie. I knew I wanted to wear a tutu. (I’ve always wanted to, but didn’t have a good enough reason, hehe.)
I started my search online and after realizing that I wouldn’t be able to get a decent one for less than $20, I figured I could just make my own. Check out my DIY Adult Tutu for details!
Once that was finished, I simply added a pair of boots, black shirt and an adorable headband tiny witch hat which I got at Target for $1.
We don’t look too bad!
After our trip to the Pumpkin Patch, it was time to decorate our pumpkins! Kind of.
I don’t know if you knew this, but toddlers aren’t very good with sharp utensils (not that we tried, but it makes sense). Anyway, we decided that it’d be best to let baby CJ color it.
After our pumpkins were colored, I stuck a bow on them to add to the effect. In hindsight, I think paint would have worked best, but I guess we won’t really know until next year!
