Last year, Lucy was too little for a Halloween costume. But this year, she decided to dress up as her favorite food: CHEESE. (Or did her food-loving mother decide for her? She can’t talk yet so… you decide.)
Inspired by my visit to Wisconsin and this brilliant blogger, I made her a cheese costume. (And when I say “made” I mean I begged my friends to help me—you guys know I’m not craftsy.) I picked up a Packers cheesehead and yellow onesie, and my talented friend Esther (a graphic designer) created a patch that says “aged 13 months,” which friends helped me print onto an iron-on decal. A toy mouse completes the look, which would be perfect except…
Lucy hates her cheesehead.
Out takes after the jump…
“Get this thing off of me!”
This picture pretty much sums up how she feels about the whole idea, ha ha ha. (I’m laughing now, but twenty years from now, I’m in for it :)
Happy Halloween! Are you dressing up today?
P.S. Here’s yours truly on this day circa 1980.
