Happy Halloween from the Caldwell family!
I'll admit I'm not much of a Halloween fan so I've been dragging my feet getting costumes together for the girls, but after choosing a direction I wanted to go it came together to make one, darn cute Tinker Bell and little minion.
Livy's costume took no effort at all, which is exactly what I wanted. I just used this minion hat that I made Mia when she was a baby and put her in some overalls. Done! For Mia I had gotten this Tinker Bell outfit at Goodwill while I was in Oregon. Add some wings, tights and shoes with pom poms and it turned into the cutest thing. Not to mention Mia LOVED it!
For the shoes I just cut the pom poms off the top of some Santa Clause hats we had lying around and sewed them to some shoes she already had. It totally completed the outfit! It also worked out that Mia's hair is finally long enough to put up in a little bun.
Tonight we had a fun time taking Mia trick-or-treating. We went with a friend around the neighborhood. It was so stinking cute watching Mia and her little friend, Emma hold hands and walk up to the doors to get candy.
Lastly, all Halloween things aside...Happy Nevada Day! Growing up in Nevada we always got the day of Halloween off to celebrate the day Nevada becoming a state. Most people see Nevada as a dry, ugly desert and pretty much recognize Las Vegas as it's only city, but when I think of Nevada I think of home, small towns, many adventures in the surrounding mountains/hills and family.
So to celebrate here's Nevada's state song sung by the Killers :)
