Alaire has said since August she wanted to be a pig for Halloween. I haven't a clue where she saw this or got this idea but it's what she wanted. I found this old pattern, which of course was out of print : ) I sure do love Etsy at a time like that.
I put it on the mannequin after finishing it and Alaire loved it. Then she saw the pattern cover. She responded by saying, "I thought I was going to be a cow first." I was a little pissed. lol That little pig head was a lot of hand stitching. Not a fan of it either.
But it all worked out just fine.
On Halloween Alaire had Mom's Day Out/ Preschool until 2:30 I picked her up and we went straight to St Charles' Main Street Trick or Treat. It was really fun!
It's the cutest little area with brick roads and a million shops, candy stores and boutiques.
Then we came home and carved pumpkins.
Then we got dressed again. I was a princess. Drew was a pirate. We have dressed up every year with Alaire. It is fun and Alaire was really into it.
