    1. Thanks so much! Yay Wonder woman and a toothfairy sounds cute too!

  2. I love all of these! So simple and fun. :D

  3. Oh how I miss the days of making their costumes. They were much easier for this Momma when they were little.. Now, I do like to help them pull stuff together to come up with a fun costume. We do so many Halloween events throughout October, we try to mix things up. This year, they are Little Red Riding Hood and A shopkin. I always want to dress up, but never get around to it. Fun stuff and good ideas.
