My Little Owl

I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween! We had a great time this year, Sydney was really into getting 'treats' this time around. The poor kids plastic pumpkin was so filled, Daddy had to carry it home cause it was too heavy. Of course, she doesn't realize yet that Mom and Dad are entitled to half of that candy!

Sydney has been telling me for a month that she wanted to be a brown and white bird for Halloween so I decided to make her an owl costume. I threw in a little blue so it wouldn't feel so drab. Also, can I say that I LOVE that she wanted to be an animal instead of some Disney princess or something. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I just love that she's not consumed by that stuff yet.

The back of the costume.

Hoot, hoot!

All of the feathers are made out of felt that I cut and glued to a khaki dress she already had. I also made the owl face out of felt and glued it to a hairclip since I knew she wouldn't keep on a mask or hat. Then I added some brown leggings and a white tee and voila, an owl!

Daddy carved us a spooky pumpkin!
