    Well, hello there October. Where did you come from?

    I feel like this year has been in a permanent state of fast forward, but I guess as the saying goes, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” It’s that time of year now to start dreaming up what your little cuties will go dressed as for Halloween. Will they go spooky or sweet? Will they choose or will you choose what they get to be? Will you buy or make their costume?

    I’m always on the side of making the costumes, but that’s just me as a crafty type of gal. I love how adorable the little ones look in an outfit that you know someone put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into. I’ve rounded up some of the best homemade Halloween costumes from around the internet that you can replicate at home. Enjoy!
