Among the December Daily offerings this year is the most adorable 3×8 album…and while 3×8 is too small for me personally to use for December Daily while my kids are this small and cute and photographable, I decided the starry night cover would make this a perfect album for Halloween. Yesss!
I never really cared about Halloween until Nora was born, so I haven’t scrapbooked it before (EDIT: that was a lie; I just found this old Howl-o-Ween page from 2008, heehee), but I love the idea of having this little album with all of Nora and Lily’s costumes in one place.
I want to keep the album really simple and doable, so each year gets one quick spread. I used the October digital release from Ali Edwards to make most of these.
2014, when Nora was just under two months old and I made my dreams come true by dressing her up as Mukmuk. Aaaw. Side note: she drew me a picture of Big & Mini Mukmuk a couple of weeks ago and my heart burst for the millionth time since having kids.
In 2015 she still had no idea what Halloween was, so when JK dressed up as Jon Snow, Nora happily tagged along as his direwolf, Ghost.
Halloween ’16 was so good – we dressed up as a family of dinosaurs with my baby bump as an egg with a baby dinosaur popping out. It was also the first time Nora trick-or-treated for reals, and she was obvs a massive fan.
2017 was Lily’s first, uhm, ex utero Halloween! She went as the grizzly companion to Nora’s polar bear. For this spread I used the October Stories by the Month kit.
This is the first album I’ve actually dared let Nora flip through…she loved it and wanted to keep it in her room (sorry, kid).
This year the girls have reached the age of actual opinions, so they will be dressing up as (surprise!) Anna and Elsa. My spread for 2019 might be more princessy, fewer bats.
