Halloween has never been one of mine or Andrew’s favorite holidays. We prefer Christmas and Fourth of July (our anniversary)! I think we dressed up the first year we were dating and that was it. I will say that it was a lot more fun this year with Oakley. I dressed her in Halloween outfits a couple of the days leading up to Halloween. We talked about her first Halloween costume for a month prior. We had a couple of costumes in mind but couldn’t make up our mind and when we finally went to buy one they were all sold out. Soooo, buy your Halloween costumes early! It worked out because we made her a homemade costume instead, which was fun! I ordered a onesie from Target. It was actually a bear onesie with a little bear patch on it and bear ears on the hood. We found an adult lion headpiece and tale and sewed them on. I thought she made the cutest lion and no one else had her costume! If you know me at all, I had to dress up my dogs too! Abigail and Colt wore bear ears while Charlie wore a tiger headpiece. I just made those out of paper plates and paint. Oakley, Abigail, Colt, and Charlie were LIONS, TIGERS, AND BEARS, OH MY!
