We had such a blast doing this Valentine Cupid Photo Shoot! Emma is growing up so fast and I miss her being little. This photo shoot was four years ago! She is turning 12 in a couple of months. It’s amazing and scary and bitter sweet to watch her grow and learn and change. She is an amazing human and I wish I could be more like her.
This was such a fun Halloween. I love to do themed costumes for my kids but I knew that I wanted Emma to be a peacock and had no idea what would go with that. I found this super cute owl costume at a Halloween shop and decided it was perfect for Levi and they could both just be birds!
These costumes were so fun to put together and the kids LOVE them. After I got the final details all finished we decided to do a photo shoot. We spent some time and got hair and make-up done. SO MUCH PINK MAKEUP! Then we rushed out the door before it got too late and we lost light. We decided the park would be the perfect place for Mario and Princess Peach to hang out. The kids had fun playing and I enjoyed taking their pictures.
This is another Halloween costume idea from years past. I had found this super adorable spider costume online at The Children’s Place and had to have it for Levi. Unfortunately my order was returned because they didn’t think my address existed. We lived no where near a Children’s Place at the time, so I called my awesome sister-in-law and she ran to her store and found the only one left in his size, on sale for TEN BUCKS, and mailed it to me! Because I think matching costumes are the best thing ever I had to come up with something for Emma to match. I decided on Miss Muffet and was so happy when Emma agreed that it was a good idea. I called my mom and told her my dilemma. I needed a Miss Muffet costume but I posess no sewing skills. My mom happens to be an AMAZING seamstress! Emma wanted it in blue so Grandma whipped it up and sent it with the spider costume. I was blown away by how adorable it was!!! The package arrived the day before our first Halloween party. I have the best family ever.
We LOVE Halloween at our house! We had so much fun making these costumes and doing a little photo shoot. The best part? I spent under $15.00 for both! We used items that the kids already had and accessorized from there.
