for personal and scriptural reasons we don’t do halloween at our house. our kids don’t really seem to mind since they’re not too big on dressing up and get spooked pretty easily by anything halloween related. each year though, king of kings put on their costume carnival a few days before halloween. this year i decided to make the kids pirate costumes since they like to play jake and the neverland pirates. i found a cute tutorial online and got to work. i debated making one for laurel also, but it didn’t seem worthwhile since she’ll have out grown it by the time she’s into playing alongside nate and jilly. she was going to go in regular clothes, but at the last minute, i remember that we had a ladybug costume in her size.
