Happy Halloween

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

I know that Kirby will not remember any of her first Holidays, do I care? Nope. It doesn't stop me from making every holiday & the days leading up to it just as magical as the next. Call it practicing for when she does remember if you will.

We kicked of Halloween week with some delicious Halloween themed cupcakes. The bat cupcakes are made from chocolate fudge striped cookies, Red Hots & Hershey Kisses. The pumpkin cupcakes are carrot cake flavored with pumpkins painted in colored icing.

I decided to paint pumpkins this year, something that I have never done before. We have always been pumpkin carvers, which I fully plan on doing next year when Kirby can actually participate. However, I do think we will incorporate painted pumpkins as well from now on, they were so fun & turned out better than I expected.

Of course we dressed in a few festive outfits throughout the week.
Kirby had two costumes this year. This witch costume just sort of fell in our laps, I made the tutu for her pumpkin patch photo shoot & I happened to pick up the hat (cut it off of the hard headband & hot glued it to elastic) & socks at Old Navy & Target separately. So I decided to throw some purple in the tutu & do a solo costume shoot on Halloween Eve.

Seriously, I love her.

Per usual I had to sneak in a quick picture with my girl. Those baby blues, swoon.

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Fred & Wilma Flinstone. [insert heart explosion here] I love them both more than words can describe & I can't wait to show these pictures to them when they are older. My best girlfriend (Rebecca) & I hand made the costumes together & they turned out too perfect for words.

Finally after our photo sesh it was time to pass out candy & pour a cold one.
Kirby got to do a little trick-or-treating herself.
She would have gladly eaten a million pieces if I would have let her, but she settled for the package instead.

 Happy Halloween! I couldn't ask for a better first Halloween with my girl & my heart is overwhelmed with excitement already just thinking about celebrating it next year with a toddler!
