Our church decided to have a Harvest Fest this year. This was our first year to do anything like this - the kids had such a great time.
I had a great time too.
I may or may not have eaten 2 bags of cotton candy.
I love things like this because it's an alternative to going door-to-door to trick-or-treat. Trick-or-treating is so weird to me. Taking Amelia to a strangers home and asking for candy - no thanks. (LOL) Anyway, Amelia LOVED Harvest Fest. She played non-stop and was worn out by the time the night was over. Her favorite thing was the bouncy house.
I went back and forth on what she should be this year. I loved her Amelia Earhart costume last year and wanted something unique this year as well. After seeing this little dress on etsy, I knew she had to be Audrey Hepburn. I LOVE Audrey Hepburn movies. Sabrina is my all-time favorite and then Breakfast at Tiffany's. Here she is all dolled up!
My sister-in-law found the mini tiara in the Walmart party section for $1.00. It worked perfectly! We couldn't find solid black sunglasses so she just wore her animal print ones from Gap. The pearls were $1.00 from Accessory City and we already had the shoes. It was an easy costume and I thought she looked adorable.
She played the fishing game, the cake walk, and made a bracelet too!
She told us she didn't even want a bath when we arrived home, though she still received one. :) She was so sticky from the 12 suckers she had over the course of the night. She never finished one. She just carried them around, licked on them, and then handed them to random people to discard for her. HA! Little Ms. Audrey was spotted all throughout the evening, rummaging through the candy buckets, filling her bag. She didn't really grasp the concept of getting all the candy she could though because she would walk back over and empty her bag. She ended up bringing home about 10 pieces of candy - thank goodness!
Eating her candy...
It was a fun night for all!
Love to all,
