Halloween Costumes for Twins or Siblings

Posted by & filed under Projects.

With Halloween right around the corner I have started brainstorming the perfect costume for the boys to wear to celebrate their very FIRST Halloween. (If we are being honest, I have brainstormed since LAST Halloween when I knew I was pregnant.)

Halloween will be their first big holiday (sorry 4th of July) and I have loved planning their costumes and finding the perfect pieces to make their outfits complete. Thank goodness for Etsy. I was struggling to decide between our two favorite ideas for their costumes.  But I finally made up my mind and picked the one that allowed Matt and I to get in on the fun too (more on that another day, I promise)!

I did love our “runner-up” option tons!  This costume was super easy and I already had everything I needed in their closet, so I decided I would dress them up and share it with you today!

DIY Superman and Clark Kent Halloween Costume

Have you ever seen a more adorable Superman and Clark Kent?? I think not!!

The boys were given these precious superman costumes (cape included) at my baby shower from a dear friend of mine.  To make one of the boys Clark, I dressed him in one of their cute outfits. Again that we already had.  I unbuttoned a few buttons and voilà!! I did make little black glasses for my Clark Kent to wear, but he was NOT having it.  I guess Clark decided to get some contacts instead!!

But the Halloween cuteness cannot stop there! Below I am sharing a whole bunch of great ideas for Halloween costumes for twins or siblings.

 This Month’s Quote:

Audrey Hepburn For Beautiful Eyes

I have always loved Audrey Hepburn’s quote sharing her “recipe for beauty”.  Although it has been several decades since she spoke these words; their message still carries much power with me today.  In a time where being beautiful seems to be a top priority; in the world of plastic surgery, photo shop, and selfies; everyone wants to put their best foot forward. And while I will be the first to admit, I too prefer to leave the house with some mascara and lip gloss on, I also know that what matters most is what you cannot see. 

My recipe for inner beauty…

For sparkling eyes, allow your talents and gifts to shine for all those to see. 

For a perfect, dainty nose, always stop to smell the roses.  Take your time in the hustle and bustle of the world to notice the small things in life.  We all know that it is the little things that often bring us the most joy.

For flawless skin, first of all wear sunscreen, seriously, every day! Also turn the other cheek, rise above, be the bigger person.  Be who you are, and say what you feel.  Those who mind what you have to say do not matter in the long run. 

For flowing locks of hair, be bold and daring.  Be spontaneous and take chances.

For soft lips, always think before you speak.  Use your words to build others up, not tear them down.

For beautiful hands, give as much as you take.  Spend time working with your hands to make our world a better place. 

For true, lasting beauty, believe in yourself.  Have confidence, character, and conviction. True beauty comes from your attitude and actions. Follow your dreams, be generous and truthful. Make friends and spread happiness where ever you go.

 

Now it’s your turn… what do Audrey Hepburn’s words mean to you?? Join the fun by linking up with us!  Be sure to visit the blogs below and see how they interpreted this months That’s What She Said!

Three Month Old Pictures {Wordless Wednesday}

Posted by & filed under Babies, Family.

Last week the boys turned three months old.  We had a great photo session with our amazing photographer Liz from Limelight Photography to celebrate.  I absolutely LOVE the photos!! My cousin made the adorable TWIN onesies when the boys were born, I have been anxiously awaiting the boys being big enough to wear these adorable outfits. Their three-month old photos seemed like the perfect time!
