Avery’s 1st Halloween

We got to celebrate Avery’s very first Halloween last night!  I love Halloween, so I have been preparing for this for awhile now.  You know me, I spent plenty of time on Pinterest trying to narrow down what I was going to dress her up as.  My first idea that I found was a Rockford Peach from A League of their Own.  I planned on making myself one too and then Alex could have dressed up as Tom Hanks from the movie as well!  Then I pondered Rainbow Brite for awhile.  Then I decided on a 50’s girl.  And let me tell you, there is nothing more adorable than a little miniature 4 month old size poodle skirt!

I was set on making her Halloween costume and the poodle skirt was really easy for my first baby clothing.  I found a tutorial from One Creative Housewife.  I did have to play with the measurements a bit since it was a baby sized, but overall I followed the tutorial.  I found a cute mini poodle from Hobby Lobby and used an old dog tag chain as the leash.  I had planned on making my own, but my grandma had one already sewn up, so I just had her send that one to me!

Here is the outfit before I added the cute baby and accessories!

I decided that instead of buying expensive trick or treat bags, I am going to make it a tradition to make a Halloween bag personalized to match her outfit every year.  It was only fitting that she had a treat bag with a record on it!

Avery's great grandma Wanda Jean sent her the perfect sneakers to dress up the outfit!

Daddy and Mommy took baby to Mall-o-Ween for some indoor trick or treating fun!   She was the cutest baby there, but don't tell!

She loved looking around at all the people in the mall.  Our little people watcher!
