I think every Utahn will agree with me when I say that this years Halloween was perfect. All night I said to Matt “This will be a Halloween we’ll never forget. I promise you. It’s perfect.”
Many things made the night perfect for me. Adalie’s enthusiasm was a big part of it. She loved every moment of trick-or-treating this year. She would knock on the door & softly say “Trick-or-Treat.” Collect her candy & as she ran away yell “THANK YOU!” Right way would say “Next one mom! Next one!” I had so much fun with her I felt like a little kid myself.
She lasted a good twenty houses before she started saying “I’m done. I wanna go home now.” & jumped in her stroller for a ride back home. I tried to convince her to go to a few more houses but she was tuckered out. It probably had to do with the overload of candy she already had. I tried my best to get photos of her while we were out but she refused to sit still so every picture is a little black blur.
This photo is the least blury & my favorite. Her little black blur & the skip in our step shows exactly how the night went for us.
I knew I wanted Adalie to be a cat & Matt thought it would be cute if Stella was a mouse. Cat chases mouse kind of thing. So we went with it & they looked adorable.
For both of their tutus I got a spool of tulle & cut it down to about two inches wide & tide it onto elastic. That’s it.
For Adalie’s cat tail I found a fluffy boa, hot glued it onto a piece of floral wire & looped it onto the elastic. It worked perfectly & the wire gave the tail enough support but also gave it a little bounce when she moved around.
The black shirt & leggings are from Target. I was going to do a leotard but with the unpredictable weather in Utah I knew that wasn’t a good idea.
Stella’s mouse tail came from some gray fleece fabric I had. I cut out a little tail & sewed it together. Stuffed it with fluff, some floral wire & hand sewed it onto the elastic.
I got her onsie at Carter’s. It came in a pack with a few other adorable onsies. The tights are from Target. I love stripes & polka dots together so this was the perfect mouse combination.
Nana is always spoiling the girls with random things. She got Adalie this little kitty costume set from the dollar store. The cat ears that came with it were too cute not to use. They went so well with her sparkly skirt & they worked perfectly with her outfit.
Stella’s little mouse ears were a bit more complicated. I saw these on Pinterest & knew I could easily make them. I used some gray flet & cut out ears from this template, glued them onto elastic & did a little stitch around them to hold them together. I made a little pink bow from random ribbon I had. They were so easy to make & added so much to her little costume.
Their shoes I got from Target. Adalie was in need of a cute pair of winter boots so these were the perfect pick. They’ll go with everything & they looked adorable with her costume.
Stella’s are the Ministar baby boots in pink. They are the best babe shoes! Every mom needs a pair for their little ones. They’re warm, soft & stay on their feet. You read that correctly. They NEVER fall off!
Here’s a few more photos of them so you can take in all the adorableness! I wish I could have gotten a photo of the two of them together but Adalie is impossible these days. She is constantly on the move.
Later on I will do a post on my outfit & give details on how I did my hair into cat ears. Until than answer a few questions for me! What did you dress your babes up as for Halloween? & if you’re not from Utah how was the weather for you?
