Trick or Treat

First- I didn't know I had so many friends in Cincinnati! We could have had a big blog lunch I guess! :-) I enjoyed your city!!!

I know it's only August

But I like to think ahead

So what do this
And this

And this
And this cutest thing ever all have to do with each other???

All possible parts of our family costumes for Halloween. Scott surprised me by saying he would dress up to match Harper's outfit. (That girl is so far wrapped around his finger it's silly) (or maybe it's just that he wants a lot of candy).

I know it's 2 months away ........but I can't wait!

Costume is HERE.

Do you think I can talk my almost 10 yr old daughter into wearing the pig costume?? That is THE cutest costume I've ever seen!!! Harper will be EDIBLE in it!

Lauren said...

Soooo adorable! I've already been planning our family costumes! Girl, it's never to early to plan for Halloween! LOVE IT! And thought of you today when I read a post about football in the South:www.sabbespot.blogspot.com

Jessica Miller Kelley said...

Where did you find that one? I was looking at One Step Ahead last night, thinking about this very thing! I'm leaning toward the monkey, giraffe, or tiger (all of which would match favorite stuffed animals).

If you're ever in Nashville, Kate and I would love to meet you and Harper!

Rory said...

Old MacDonald? We are thinking costumes around here, too. 3 year old= witch, baby= black cat. That's what we all agreed on.

Lindsay said...

Super cute...I can't wait til Halloween either. Last year was my daughters 1st halloween and I had such a hard time deciding that I actually had 2 outfits. One for pictures and the other was for trick-or-treating! Haha!

Rikki said...

Okay, so I have been looking at costumes too. I have been looking very seriously at a pig for Lauren. I wanted the two girls to match so the other idea I had was Rachel to be a clown (I found the cutest outfit ever) and Lauren a peanut! ha!!! We don't do ghosts, skeletons, anything scary and no witches for us! Can't wait to see pictures in her pig costume!

tara said...

hey kelly! luciana is only 9 days old and i already have most of her halloween costume! we are dressing her up as a ladybug along with a tutu of course! :) our church does a "trunk or treat" complete with bonfire, hayrides, and pumpkin carving contest. we are so excited for fall!!! hope you're having a great week! -Tara

Julie said...

Do tell where that cute piggie costume is from!!!

Tara G. said...

Didn't you say you were putting up gallery frames in your bedroom?! :)

CUTE!!!!!!!!!!

My husband is the same with our girls and it's worse with the second because she's the caboose of the fam!

R said...

girl, i'm a planner too! we started Christmas planning/shopping a few weeks ago.

i have a random question for you that's not even on this subject. when you blog about cleaning and prepping for guests to come, i always want to ask you this: how do you clean for that? do you start a few days before they arrive and clean, or do you do it all the day before? i ask because i love to clean, cook, and entertain like you do, but i'm always at a loss for how to get it done. i have a typical weekly cleaning routine, but when people are coming over i of course want things to look like they've JUST been cleaned. (i.e., if i dust the living room two days before company, yeah i've gotten it done, but it looks a little dusty again by the time they arrive.)

i have no idea if that makes any sense! :0) i guess, is your cleaning routine different/altered when company's coming? :0)

obviously, not an earth-shattering question. i was just curious! just if you happen to have time to answer one day in the future.

McFadden Family said...

awww that costume is super cute. we dressed our one year old up like a cow last year and hubby was the cowboy! too cute.

Angela Holland said...

Too stinking cute!! Especially being here in Arkansas.

Summer said...

That is a cute piggy costume...I seen that in the same magazine I just bought Kelcee's bumble bee costume in... I think me and my husband (if I can talk him into it) are going to dress like beekeepers. I can't wait to see your halloween pics.

Heather said...

So........ what is Harper going to be? Or is she going to be the piggy in the picture?

Christina said...

I love Halloween! My Mom sews and she always put A LOT of thought into all of our costumes; there are seven of us kids so there was lots of sewing and thinking to do! My baby sister was Ms. Piggy one year and she was just adorable! Mr. and Mrs. Farmer and their piggy is a really cute idea!

AKat said...

That is TOO CUTE, Kelly!

Erin said...

I LOVE that pig costume! I am glad to know that I am not the only one who is already costume shopping..ha! I was a little shy to admit that I found Kinley's costume this week. She is going to be the Itsy Bitsy Spider! So fun. Totally can't believe we are already buying Halloween costumes for these girls! AH!

LB said...

Where do you get that pig costume? Too cute!

Harris Family said...

NO WAY! CILLA IS GOING TO BE THE SAME LITTLE PIGGIE FOR HALLOWEEN!!! They really need to meet and be friends!

Jennifer T said...

In His Army said...

I saw that pig outfit in a catalog a few days ago and LOVED it!!!! I was trying to decide if it was only for girls or if I could make Jeryn wear it! :) Ha! I decided he might not ever forgive me...but that is an adorable outift!

JG said...

That's adorable! I love it!

Elizabeth said...

We are not dressing up to match..ha!

Anna said...

Precious...where on earth did you find that pig costume?!?!

Danielle said...

What a great idea!! And good for you to think ahead, wow!

Christy@pipandsqueak said...

Match while you can. We are in the princess phase and don't see my husband dressing as a prince. You still have control.

Sara said...

Love it! Enjoy it while you can. It won't be long and she will want to be wearing the ugly polyester junk that falls apart before the night it over!

Caroline said...

What a cute piggy costume. Love it.

I have had my kids halloween costumes since February, ha!
Taylynn and Preston are going to the princess and frog prince.

In this wonderful life... said...

I love Halloween!!! cute outfits!!

Jill said...

L*O*V*E the pig outfit! Absolutely precious!!! Scott will have to practice your best "soo-ee!"

Elisha said...

oh that little piggy costume is priceless!I have a little chicken costume going in my garage sale next weekend that would be perfect with the piggy!

http://elisha-mynameismom.blogspot.com/2008/11/star-wars-and-chickens.html

I loved it... 2 of my boys actually wore it but It never occured to me to have the whole family dress in related costumes... That may be an idea for this year- I LOVE halloween!

Wow. That was everywhere. lol.

Tiffany said...

Love it already!

motherof3fellows said...

I saw that sweet little pig outfit in my Firefly catalog yesterday! i love it. I'm thinking about the little chick for my little guy!

Pieper Rodriguez said...

Oh my goodness, this is the costume that I am putting Livi in this year! It was by far the cutest on chasing fireflies. Great minds think alike!

April said...

Ok I have started looking for Harrison's costume too but haven't found anything nearly as cute! Please share where you found this one!

Tiffany said...

I love reading your blog, you give me so many ideas! I have been planning my daughters 1st Halloween too and I was thinking you should do a Friday show us you Halloween costumes so that we could get some cute ideas! I bet some other moms would like that too!

Mandi said...

Harper will be the cutest little piggy! Props to Scott for being willing to dress up with his girls. :)

King J's Queen said...

How cute! Now, please tell me Scott will wear a hat that doesn't have bullet holes....LOL!

Ashley said...

OMG!!! I love that pig outfit! Seriously!

Here is what you can do! Buy the pig outfit for Harper. Then, if I end up having a girl (find out next week!) you can sell it to me for next year!!!

Soooo adorable!!

Newlywed in the Suburbs said...

Aw, so cute! As a daddy's girl myself, I know the same thing is going to happen to my husband when we have a little girl someday :)

Courtney said...

I LOVE the little piggy costume, she is going to look SO cute!

Ruthie said...

I live in Ohio too! Not Cinci, but that's so fun that you were in our State.

That pig costume is simply TOO much! So cute. Sophia is almost 5 and always has a new idea for what she'll dress up as. Riley will get to wear a zebra costume that his sister wore for her first halloween! I can't wait to see him in it.

So glad flying with Harper went well. Isn't it fun taking our kids on little adventures?? I love experiencing life with my kiddos.

Ruthie :)

Rubydotlarue said...

We did a lamb on Garrett last year and he was the cutest! Harper will look super cute in the piggy costume! Better take extra pillow cases for all the candy!!!

Todd and Courtney said...

oh oh where did you find that last costume? I LOVE IT!

The Allen Family said...

No worries- we are already planning for Halloween too! Gotta make the first one extra special!! :)

Lil' Woman said...

She would be the cutest little piggy there ever was! :)

Eric and Alisha Harris said...

Kelly,

The Allens said...

We're working on Halloween costumes too!

Andrea said...

I LOVE the little pig outfit!

I had my kids' Halloween costumes picked out before I knew I was even pregnant with the second baby...more than a year ago...I have 2 girls, ages 2 and 5 months and they are going to be little bo peep and a sheep... Dressing up kids is fun!

Some Like it Southern said...

That would be so cute if y'all dressed alike! And how stinking cute is that little costume for Harper!?!!

I just did a post about Halloween costumes too! I am sure you are having just as much fun planning Harper's first Halloween as I am having planing A's first Halloween!

Tiaras said...

HAHA my little one said she wanted that costume too! So funny! I wanted her to pick Little Bo Peep right above it!

Donna said...

Kelly, the piggie costume is too cute. It's never too early to start planning. And if you're ordering from a catalog, you better order the day you see something or it's gone. Can't wait to see Scott in those ostrich skin boots and the hat!
Keeping you in my heart in Ga.
Donna

Heather said...

Once again, we are twins because last week I picked out Connor and Avery Kate's costumes! They are going to match, too!

Jenny said...

The first halloween after our first son was born we all dressed up as the 3 amigos...so cute.
Kind of miss those days!

Laura P said...

Oh my goodness, that little piggy costume is ADORABLE!!!

Great, now I am thinking about what to dress my 2 year old up as. Last year he was Mickey Mouse. Hmmm wonder if they make a Cookie costume (not cookie monster just a cookie)?

The Scott Family said...

That is SO precious!! Don't feel bad about planning ahead...I had my little girls first Halloween costume picked out when I found out I was having a girl...and bought it shortly after she was born (in December)! My little pink poodle was so stinkin cute, as I know your little piggie will be!!

Did you find this costume at One Step Ahead?

Jennifer said...

Oh I love it!
I cannot wait to see pictures of the two of them. I think you need to dress up, too! Y'all would be the cutest!
Josh wants Brody to be a hot dog. We found the costume online one night. He isn't going to be one, so thankfully, we are still searching! :)

Mark and Mandi said...

Ahhhhh...that's what my daughter is going to wear for her 1st Halloween too! She is just a few weeks older than Harper:) Check out www.sensationalbeginnings.com for the cheapest price I've found!!!

The Simmons Family said...

Kelly.. you've totally got to think ahead! I always buy costumes in September on EBAY! I get them for dollars and if you wait until October they are triple the cost! Check it out.

Owen is going to be the Tinman from the Wizard of Oz. If I only had a heart... cause he's waiting for his new heart. Now I need to convince Kamryn to be Dorothy.

Michelle said...

Awww...that will be so cute! Kayla is going to be a lady bug and my mom agreed to make the costume like she did for me when I was little. First we have to make it through the 2nd birthday! YIKES!

Brittany said...

Oh my goodness. SO CUTE! Haha!

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

Too cute!

Alison said...

I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who plans ahead. We just got the material to have matching pirate costumes for my two.

I LOVE, LOVE that costume. CUTE!

Pink Lemonade and Peonies said...

So cute!!! I love it. Don't know what we will be this year, but I can't wait.

DeAnna said...

Too cute!!! I came across your blog through Lianna's (she and I grew up together) and I absolutely love it. I look forward to reading it everyday!! Your daughter is adorable!

Annie said...

No way. KELLY!!!! I have been looking for a pink pig costume for our little girl... I saw one on a blog a few months ago, and I cant find the blog anymore (it was one of those that i clicked on someone who commented on someone else, etc...)... Harper will be adorable if you choose the piggy!
I am still searching for a really cute pig or maybe a big poofy pumpkin... pottery barn kids has a cute one of those!
p.s.- my husband dressed up as Batman one year! (I was Batgirl, and our little boy was Robin...) Such cute pics... and you are right, its amazing what these men will do for their kids!!! :)

Julie said...

My niece, who was two at the time, wore that pig costume last year for Halloween and I can not begin to tell you how very cute she was in it!!!

Amber said...

I gave you a blog award! Check out my blog!

Laura Craig said...

Awwwwwwwwwwww!!!! How adorable!!!! I am already costume shopping. We need to space things out a bit!!! With 3 kids with birthdays around Christmas.... that time of year gets pretty tight!! So, I am shopping EARLY!!! Lol!!!

I can't wait to see pictures!!

Mary said...

Thinking about Halloween is the same as thinking about cooler weather so I totally get looking ahead. If I remember correctly though last year was still fairly warm. The year before that was freezing. Never can tell where we live...I'm sure y'all will be super cute!

Casey said...

Where did you find the boots?

BeckyMuller said...

Where did you find that costume?? I need one for Addison!

Tiffany Brooks said...

I see everyone else wants to know where you got the boots and pig outfit too. Can you email me or put it on the blog? Love the pig costume. Could totally see my little girl in it too!

Courtney said...

I was eyeing up the pig costume too.... way too cute.

Wendy said...

I can tell you have been to Hobby Lobby lately. Talk about putting anyone in the mood for Fall if you step in there! It will be here before we know it.

The Popes said...

Don't feel bad, I've had our family costumes planned out since two days BEFORE last Halloween!!

Holley said...

I have the same costume picked out for my daughter! It is soooo cute. She was a chicken her 1st st Halloween, a cow last Halloween and I thought a pig would help continue our farm animal theme!

Melissa Miller said...

My two nieces Maryn and Reese wore those pink pig costumes last year! It's adorable! :)

julie & joe said...

Looks like fun! I love the piggy costume. A. is going as Thomas teh train this year and daddy likes to dress scary to go with the front yard.

Carla said...

Oh Girl!!! It is NOT too early to be planning Halloween! LOL!!! I have already bought an outfit for each of my kids for the pumpkin patch! :) I love the idea for your family costumes!

Jenna said...

Oh My Goodness, Where did you get Harpers Halloween costume? It is the cutest thing ever!!

cartla2 said...

actually i am shocked you even do halloween...because of how christian you are,i thought for sure this holiday would not be an acception.(because of where it originates)your family is so beautiful and your daughter looks so happy all the time,i bet she will be as pretty as you when she is older.

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

Love the little piggy costume. My girls always loved getting dressed up for Halloween. I made a lot of their costumes and that was so much fun!! Love & blessings from NC!

Amy said...

I know you will probably do this, but google this costume. I have seen this in two different catalogs and one was twice as much as the other. Sorry I didn't keep the catalogs. Once I decided on a costume for my daughter, I threw them away so I wouldn't be tempted to waffle! Love, love, love this cotume! It was on our list but a ladybug won. I dressed her as a mouse last year so I wanted something with a tutu this year! She has three big brothers that all wore the mouse costume for their first Halloween, it was so cute. But, now it's time for tutus!

Katie Bug said...

That is one of the cutest costumes I have seen!

Hillary said...

Ahhh...to be that thin again! I will do it again...one day! PLEASE LORD!

Hillary said...

Oops...meant to leave that on the NYC post. Ha!

Ryan and Melanie said...

I already talked to my littles about what they wanted to dress up as and they picked a coordinating theme! Fun!

Mr. and Mrs. B said...

To add a little fun to the equation, Target always had VERY adorable dog costumes in farm animals. One of my dogs was a rooster last year and looked absolutely precious. Then the whole family would be involved!!!

Julie said...

This is the most precious costume! I was going to order it for my daughter last year but it sold out QUICK!!! Then I could not find it anywhere else. So make sure you go ahead and put in your order!

Andie said...

Ok, I saw this post yesterday and thought it was darling. And then in the middle of the night, when I was nursing my own baby it hit me... She'll be a "HOG"! Way WAY too cute! I giggled out loud.

Jennifer said...

Too cute. We are going to be Old MacDonald, Mrs. Farmer, and either a chick or a pig. Kate's favorite song and book is Old MacDonald. She goes CRAZY at the zoo when we see the pigs!
