Lily is obsessed with My Little Pony. She knows every name and what they like to do and can sing the song.
Naturally she wanted to be a pony for Halloween. The Hasbro people are really falling down on the job… as they sell none.
Therefore, I was forced to make one.
Using felt, I sewed ears and a snout on a Target hoodie. Jeff’s mom sewed the ribbon on for a mane and a tail while she was here, after watching her do it… I realized the thing would have been in the trash by now if I’d tried. I used acrylic paint to add the eyes and “cutie mark” (that is seriously what they call it) onto Garanimals leggings and skirt. Voila… one pinkie pie costume.
I went ahead and made a Sweetie Belle costume for myself with some old white clothes. The family costume party we were going to was canceled due to very, very sad reasons… so Lily insisted that I wear it to go trick or treating.
For those of you who don’t step on these ALL day long, this is Pinkie Pie and Sweetie Belle. Oops…. just realized I forgot the horn on my costume.
Her Mother’s Day Out had a little Halloween party that I got to go to. It was so cute… and her first chance to wear her Pinkie Pie suit.
To those who know…. the first picture is the much talked about ‘Tessie Nay’… Lily’s BFF on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The lady in blue is ‘Missa Hartley’, her teacher.
Then, on Saturday, we all went to the Jameses’ in Belton and had a fun Halloween party. Lily and Luke were TOTALLY in their element. Trick or treating in Aunt Pat’s neighborhood with her best friend was about her favorite thing EVER! I should have trained her to say “I’m a MY LITTLE PONY”…. instead of ‘ I’m Pinkie Pie’…. because she mostly just got a bunch of blank smiles. Oh well, at least they thought she was a CUTE little pink alien or something.
The kids were in awe of this spread!
The snow cone stand was a nice touch!
Although this was one of my first experiences with trick or treating on ‘Satan’s Birthday’ … seeing the joy on Luke and Lily’s faces -- there was no doubt in my mind who was getting the GLORY from our celebration.
