I’ve always enjoyed Halloween but I think it’s even more fun when you get to experience it with your kids. Last year I had so much fun dressing Aria up as Minnie Mouse, and then at another event she was the Robin to my Batman 😉
This year I honestly waited until the absolute last minute to figure out an outfit for all of us to do. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out a good (unique) idea and when we were visiting family last week we came across Aria’s Dorthy costume at Once Upon a Child so I rolled with it. I know a lot of families do this for Halloween so I wouldn’t say it’s unique but it was still fun and I think Aria made for a pretty cute Dorothy! I asked my husband, Blake, to be the Tin Man and was a good sport, like always, and let me spray paint his face silver for pictures. I didn’t have to buy anything for my outfit and Blake spray pained a funnel for his, that’s it! So we got by with an entire family look for just the price of Aria’s dress, her shoes, and a lion mane for Keira, our dog.
If you know us well, you know that Keira is actually my brother’s dog and our dog Ezra is also a golden retriever. He, on the other hand, is not so cool with us putting things on him so we borrowed Keira for our cowardly lion!
I hope y’all enjoyed this Halloween inspiration! I got a close up of my makeup for y’all and it was super easy! Taking pictures with a dog and a toddler is a lot easier SAID than DONE but I think we got some decent shots and I will cherish these pictures forever. Happy Halloween and stay safe you guys!
