Holidays are seriously so much more fun when you have a kid of your own. I just love experiencing everything all over again through his eyes. He still doesn’t quite get it…but that works out in my favor because I get to dress him as whatever I want! I’m sure next year he will have more of an opinion…but for this year it was all my choice! Call me crazy but I am really into homemade costumes. My mom always made ours so that’s probably why…but I just love the way they turn out! Last year I made Grey a hulk costume and this year I decided on a dinosaur! My mom made dinosaur costumes for me and my brother one year (scroll down!), so I’ve always wanted to dress my own children up as dinosaurs. Gigi helped me make this costume while she was here and I have to say I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out!! Grey loved it and refused to take it off all day. He also really loved trick or treating. He would go up to the house and say “trikorteat” “tankuu” and then turn to me and say “mo candies?” as he started walking to the next house. He caught on quick!!
Here are a thousand pictures of my dinosaur that all look very similar because I couldn’t decide!
And the inspiration for the dinosaur costume!! How cute are those?!
