Happy Lala Ween!

Can you guess what the girls were for Halloween this year?

If you guessed Lalaloopsy dolls, then kiss your brain and give yourself a pat on the back. ;) Xiera was Pillow Featherbed mainly because she wanted to be "warm and cozy" while trick or treating this year. Her favorite lalaloopsy is Spot Splatter Splash. Zella dressed as Marina Anchors, her absolute favorite! Xiera's costume with wig was purchased online at buycostumes.com. Zella's costume was custom made by Karen of Layla*and*Stitch. I made the wig to match. Making that wig was quite the task and I hope never to make another again, (I am terrible with a sewing machine believe it or not!) but it did turn out adorable and went perfect with her costume.

Karen also made their pet candy bags to match their costume character's pets. Aren't they the cutest?

We carved pumpkins the night before Halloween. Xiera helped with taking all of the pumpkin pulp and seeds out while daddy and I carved. Zella was in charge of supervising. She was not a fan of the cold and slimy seeds and pulp. This year daddy carved a whole kitty instead of a kitty face like the one I carved last year, and I carved Jack's face from A Nightmare Before Christmas into the other.


This year was blissfully sad for me because it was the first year that the girls went trick or treating without mommy or daddy accompanying them up to the doors. Daddy and I watched at the end of each driveway as they walked up together to each door and we both wondered where did the time go? Our little girls are growing up right before our very eyes and are so independent now.

We all had such a great time last night and the girls received all treats and no tricks!

So cute. The costumes and photos are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. My daughter just loves these dolls. Hopefully I will find her a friend who is into Lalaloopsy's so they can have lots of fun making things for their dolls and racing their Lalaloopsy dolls along the seafront when we move back to England.
Love your blog! You are so clever!

Hello Sharon! Thank you so much for your sweet comments. My daughters LOVE their lalaloopsys too. They actually love putting their lala's into barbie cars and have them race each other too. :) So funny! Thanks so much for reaching out.
