The Great (Little) Pumpkin

Li’s first Halloween passed last weekend. We aren’t one of those families that go crazy over Halloween. We did want to have her at least do a little bit of visiting with neighbors, so Deb had started working on a costume for her earlier this fall. She’d found a pattern for a cute bunny rabbit costume, but it became pretty obvious that it wasn’t going to work fairly quickly. Deb started with the hood that has the big floppy ears, and although Li would laugh when one of use wore it, she had no interest at all in allowing us to put it on her head. So we had to come up with a different idea…

Some friends had given Li a nice warm, orange pair of fleece pants and matching top, and Deb’s idea was to use it to turn Li into a little jack o’lantern…

Happy Halloween!

Here’s the result: we thought it turned out pretty well and Li loved it. We wondered how long the stem and leaves would be allowed to stay on her head, but she seemed to really like it. She seemed a little dubious about the whole concept of going to visit several of our neighbors at first, but as soon as she figured out they would fawn over her and give her treats, she started to get into it. The little legs didn’t last long, but she had a great time visiting a few of our friends.

  1. Adorable! Deb, you did great on the costume. But, then again, how could you mess up such a cute little face!!

    I am so thrilled to get to see pictures and keep up with Miss Li.
