Last week was filled with plenty of toddler friendly Halloween events. First, my friend hosted a Halloween party at her house. She made all the decorations by hand and did such a fantastic job. It was the cutest thing to see all of Iris' little friends dressed up in their costumes and playing together. My friend is actually a fellow blogger, so you can see lots of pictures of the beautiful spread she made here on her blog.
Iris painted her first pumpkin this year, we read Halloween stories and went to the Family Fun Night on base for food and a costume contest. On the 31st, we took her Trick or Treating for the first time! I handmade her kitty costume myself. She sat patiently as I painting her nose and whiskers, and then asked to look in the mirror and spun around with her kitty tail with pride. She said "trick oh treet" and "thank you!" to almost every house we visited - it was the sweetest thing! She really had a good time and happily ate her one allotted piece of candy after dinner. Here are a few pictures of her in her costume during each of the events we partook in!
