Halloween was quite a treat this year. For BooBoo it was the first year that she really understood trick-or-treating and for Bug it was her 1st Halloween!
We decided to go to the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium for Boo at the Zoo. BooBoo loves to go look at all of the animals and she loves playing dress up so this was like killing two birds with one stone. In order to get BooBoo a costume she really loved wee hit all major retailers and a few Halloween stores. However, none of these places had what we or BooBoo were looking for. Finally we decided to look at Once Upon a Child b/c we often stop there and get the girls cute, gently used outfits for cheap. After looking through their costumes for almost 45 minutes we hit the jackpot. BooBoo found a sparkly, pink-and-purple princess dress! The little sweetheart could not wait to get home and try her new dress on. And she wore it for almost a week straight! Here are a couple of pictures of her dress and her in it:
Bug was a little harder to find a costume for. Every time we found a costume we thought she would look adorable in, it did not come in her size. Even the bunting costumes would be sold out o her size. Eventually we decided on a glow-in-the-dark skeleton onesie. We paired that with little white pants and socks. Unfortunately she slept the entire time in her sling so this is the only picture we have of her:
I am so looking forward to next Halloween and what costumes we can come up with for the girls. BooBoo will most likely pick her own costume again, but Bug 's costume J and I will have to deicde on ourselves. But that is a battle better saved for later.
