It seems that Halloween costumes for kids under the age of 2 are designed for warmth on a cool fall night. Cool fall nights don't exist here. Sure, the nightly lows are about 78, but this is long after AC's bedtime...even on Halloween. We can't manage fleece pants and shirts no matter how adorable that flower or pumpkin costume may be. Therefore, I've had to get creative with AC's costume. I'm trying to be practical about it in hopes that she can wear pieces of her costume again. My fear is that it won't look costume-y enough. But, we're going with it! Here is a little sneak peek (plus a little extra special blankie love since it was freshly clean). We had just tried her costume on. She refused to take off the last thing - her boots!
