    This is totally adorable! I will have to keep this in mind for next year. My little guy was a turtle this year and wanted to be a ghost. I have a small Etsy business and I make costumes year round so I really wanted to make him something a little more original that a ghost costume. Maybe next year I can suggest being an owl. He is only two, so that just might work. I feel a little guilty for making what I wanted though. My eldest is 9 and she draws up detailed instructions for me to follow for her costumes. It won’t be long before my little guy does the same.

    I didn’t get around to costumes this year. I know that the Elf is a bit upset about this (the other two boys are too young to care). In my defense, he didn’t realize it was near Halloween until a few days ago. And also – two babies in the house seriously limit my desire to get out the sewing machine. *falls over* I do miss putting together outfits for him, though.

    Fantastical! Though my little man is already well into the creepy costumes (I thought for sure I’d get a couple more years of cute), I am so going as an owl next year!
