To kick off all of the fall / Halloween festivities, we attended a Harvest Festival at our church the weekend before Halloween. Honestly, it was kinda nice to have more opportunities to wear the costumes I worked so hard to make. This year everyone (with the exception of Emma) was very opinionated about what costumes they wanted.
Ava wanted to be a peacock.
We drew inspiration from here:

Emma got to sport a hand-me-down butterfly costume (which I still think is of the most stinkin’ cute things I have ever seen).
Lily was a monster and Piper was a dragon. Here was their inspiration:

And yes, they did request those costumes. Believe me, I was trying to convince someone to be an owl or something cute but they stuck to their guns.
I volunteered to bring cupcakes, so of course I took the opportunity to jazz ‘em up – making them into apples (with taffy leaves and pretzel stems).
The girls had a great time visiting the various booths and playing all of the games. A lovely way to kick off the season!
