Ghosts of Halloween Pasts (and Present too)

ER was only 3 months old for her first Halloween so we did not put her in a costume. Instead, I dressed her up in the pumpkin hat my mom made for her along with the cute bib she'd gotten for ER. The picture above was the one we sent in our Halloween cards.
We also put her in a Halloween t-shirt when I took her the Halloween Festival at the school I used to work at. I guess if you count this sleeper as a costume, then she was a pumpkin for both her first and...
second Halloween. I know you've all seen pictures of ER o' Lantern from previous posts, but here is one more. This was the Halloween picture in our cards that year.
Last year she was a flower and I just loved this costume too! This was compromise over the uber expensive PBKids version. I love the striped stocking and little footsies slippers she got to wear with it. I wasn't really feeling Halloween this year at first, thinking I'd never find a costume I liked as much as her first two. But then...
we got this in the mail! I was going to do a seperate post to show you the pretty pictures I took of ER in this year's costume. We took them the same day as our Fall Family Pictures, but with Halloween this Saturday, I've ran out of time! Yikes where did the month go? Did Halloween sneak up on you too? So by now, most of you know that she's Cinderella from the Zoo Boo post.
Her Godmother Alicia sent her the really gorgeous dress, it's so detailed that I know never in a million zillion years could I make anything half as nice. It's a good thing Auntie Alicia spoils her so! She got it on Ebay of all places! ER has an official licensed Cinderella dress up outfit, but it's still too big and drags on the floor a bit. This one is sized perfectly!
The flower headband is from Grandma Norma, picked up at the Renaissance Festival. By coincidence it coordinates with the dress perfectly! Some of the long ribbons hanging from it match the dress exactly.
We took these so that Alicia, all the way in Arizona :( could see ER in the dress. I took a whole bunch of them, I love how they came out with the fall back drop! She's already gotten to wear it to four Halloween events and has three more to go. I just love it♥
This post is linked up to Wordful Wednesday at 7 Clown Circus, cause I need all the extra entries to win one of those black Flip Ultra HD camera's they're giving away!

Good luck! Hope you win the camera!

She was such a cutie baby! My kids first Halloween I also just put them in an outfit that had a cute hood. Nothing fancy.
