Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2012

Hello again!  While Emma isn’t quite in her halloween costume yet, she wanted to be sure to share some halloween pictures this morning!  We had an impromtu photoshoot this morning to show off her holiday leg warmers that Grandma Johnson made!

Aren’t they awesome?!

They really show off her chubby toes, see her toes?!  Wait, she’ll give you a closer look!

They just make her giddy!

Giddy enought to try a crab walk!

Well sort of… she’ll just stick to her attempts at regular crawling…. me being a bad blogger lately, I forgot to take pictures of Grandma Johnson making them… boo.  But it looked pretty simple.  All she did was take knee-high adult socks, cut the foot off, and sew on some ruffles!  These were the first of many more that you’ll see!

Uh oh… Daddy busted our photo shoot!

So let’s move onto the pumpkins!  Each year Chris and I carve fake pumpkins, so that we can display them year-after-year.  This was our third year (you can see year one here and year two here).  I themed mine last year based off the fact that we had gotten a cat, so this year I thought it would only make sense to base it on another life event, so I chose a Mummy.  Mommy… Mummy… get it?!  Punny, I know 🙂  Chris likes to do characters, so he chose Boo from Mario brothers, cause I always ask to keep it Halloween related.  Emma decided to model them for us this year!

She was pretty excited about them! 

Well… Happy Halloween!  We’ll maybe be back later today, or tomorrow, to show off Emma’s official Halloween costume!  Anyone feeling fishy?!  Or ever wish they had more arms to tackle projects?!  Well Emma felt the same way!  See you later!

    That is so cute! I love those leg warmers… might have to get a tutorial from Grandma Johnson so I can make some for Brooklyn. Great job on the pumpkins! Are those easier to carve?

      Haha, that would be a giant no! They are definitely not easier to carve, well you don’t have to gut them, but they’re pretty tough. We use an xacto knife. I’ve seen in stores that you can buy heated xacto knives… and I’ve heard that those make it a lot easier, but I haven’t been able to justify the price for this once-a-year occasion 🙂
