Y3W: Trick or Treat!

Yet another perk of working with college students is that every October, most universities have Halloween parties and trick or treating events for community kids. Charlie's first trick or treating experience was a big hit. :-) Here are some pictures of my little scarecrow and his loot.

We may or may not have distracted him with an xBox controller to get that hood on his head.

"All this candy tastes like crap!"

Notice we eventually took off the hood? Yeah. He kept picking up piece after piece looking for one that didn't taste like wrapper. Sorry kid. No chocolate until at least next Halloween. I dressed up like Dorothy to match his little scarecrow costume and actually ran into a tiny Dorothy while walking around the buildings. Her dress was way sparklier than mine. I was kind of jealous. 

I must say, this costume was incredibly easy to make and was a great value for the cost. I got this Simplicity pattern on sale at JoAnn Fabrics for $1.00 and it came with patterns for Dorothy, Glinda, Scarecrow, and Tin Man in sizes 12 months to 4T. The best part? With a pattern you can mix and match parts! This is a 18 mo. shirt, 18 mo. hood, and 3T hat. Kid's got a big head.

The question now is....what to do with all this candy. Hmmm....

  1. Oh my goodness, Charlie is soooo cute in his little costume! And you are so crafty for making it yourself!

    We bought a pre-made costume this year, but I am still ridiculously excited about dressing 'Lil Buddy up in it. We don't even have anywhere to go trick-or-treat, but I figure I'll come up with some excuse to dress him up between now and the 31st!
