I love pretend play and dress-up, but I'm not a big Halloween fan. I mean sure...if babies are involved, I'm ALL in. I dressed R up as a bee, and remember Pax the chicken? Yeah - that's my kind of Halloween dress-up. But as soon as they get old enough to form their own opinions, I find myself trying to come up with a "Super-hero bear" costume only to have it tossed aside day-of.
So now we've scaled the whole Halloween thing waaaay back. When Halloween parties pop up, or the main event itself, we wander on over to the dress up box and see what we can come up with. And thanks to some insanely talented Etsy sellers....we have a whole lotta awesome in our dress-up box. (For under $50.)
