are we all recovered from an overload of sugar? i mean...let's be real. october was sugar insanity for us. we had birthday party prep // the actual party // followed a few days later by halloween. the jeans are feeling...snug. thank god you can find me in my athleisure wear every...single...day. (because i always have every intention of working out...i just don't always get there.)
anyway...i'm proud to report i've only eaten one random, bite-sized snickers...but i did eat the frosting off of sawyer's birthday cake last night...you know...because i'm trying to stay away from gluten.
all this to say - we had a fantastic halloween. i mean...can we talk about it? look at these unicorns!
in this fourth year of dressing kaye up...i finally didn't procrastinate. i had a costume ready for both girls and i even got them dressed early so i could take all their unicorn glory out to a "pasture" (one of our fields) to do some unicorn frolicking. while the lighting wasn't ideal...i still crack up looking at my little unicorns galloping around.
uh oh - unicorn down...
not to worry - super quick recovery.
i would say the highlight of our evening was when i got in a semi-argument with an eight year old who informed kaye that she wasn't a unicorn. i overheard the harsh statement and saw the hurt look on kaye's face and asked the girl why kaye wasn't a unicorn. she informed me that unicorns don't have wings. only pegai (plural for pegasus) have wings. i then insisted pegai don't have horns...she swore they did. i told her to have fun trick-or-treating.
well...my little unicorn just so happened to want to wear pink wings while trick-or-treating...so yes. in fact...my unicorn does have wings and she does fly. now move along eight year old girl picking on a four year old.
(i was later informed unicorns with wings are called alicorns. who knew?)
we didn't let that gal ruin our night. kaye enthusiastically yelled TRICK-OR-TREAT at each door with one of her gal pals dressed as belle from beauty and the beast. they were the cutest little candy-hustlers. sawyer even managed to snag a few candy bars and said thank you after each one.
it was such a fun night and i couldn't wipe the smile from my face with all the cuteness.
i'm already looking forward to next year. maybe my farmer and i will get in on the dress-up action. i can totally see him as a handsome prince.
for those wondering!!!
we snagged our unicorn horns from the sweetest little etsy shop - Ava Rae Design Co
they are comfortable and durable and i can't recommend enough! they were delivered super quickly and both my gals have enjoyed wearing them on multiple occasions!
their little unicorn tails were a simple DIY - just snag yourself some elastic and tulle from your local fabric store and boom - you have yourself a tail.
easiest costume ever.
