Ok well this isn't the second Costume shoot I've done with the kids, but the second to share with you...
In a bit, I'll share with you why I decided to post about this one.
I love to do Halloween Photo shoots with the kids. Last year was fun. I like to shoot the pics down in the Hollow. The kids were all pretty much different things.
Mads wanted to be a Peacock..
Parker was funny...
We decided Ivy would be a cute Owl...
This next part is why I wanted to share these pics with you:
The decision on what Aves should be was a hard one. I kept asking Ava, "What do you want to be?"
Ava's reply: "I don't know".
Then my mind wandered back to a prior week at our home. Ava was going through this stage... That 3 year old stage where bags of cheetos are emptied on the floor, the salt shaker is completely emptied onto the counter, milk dumped out... Oh yes, that stage.
So One night I'm working away on the Computer. All of a Sudden I hear this little person's voice.
Ava says: "It's Stuck"
Me: "What's stuck Ava?"
Ava: "This is stuck."
I turn around to find Ava's Arm completely submerged in a jar of Peanut Butter. She is trying to shake it off and it won't budge! I burst out in complete hysterics!! I of course had to take her picture: (If you notice, her arm is hanging down and that jar of PB is going nowhere! Yes, that's peanut butter on her face too!)
At the time, Aves had a fascination with Peanut Butter. We would go costume shopping, and I would tell her, you can be a Princess, A cupcake, whatever you want. She just couldn't decide. Finally I said, well Aves would you want to be Peanut Butter? Her face lit up! Yes! Yes!
I wannnnn be Peanut Budder! So I made her a Peanut Butter costume: Have you ever seen a Kid happier to be a jar of Peanut Butter?? I made the body out of felt and the top out of cardboard.
Of course the photo shoot was not complete without some tears...
I managed to get a shot of all 5 kids before Mac had to rush off to Baseball...
Thanks for letting my share. I have a little project I have done with some of our Halloween shoots.
With Much Love & Gratitude,
