There’s No Crying in Baseball
By Catherine Shepherd
I have always loved Halloween…the candy, the costumes, the spooky decorations…and it is even more fun now with a child who is (kind of) old enough to enjoy the holiday.
I couldn’t help but pack a cute Halloween-themed lunch for Ava. She probably didn’t even notice, but it was fun to put together nonetheless.
I didn’t want to send Ava to school in her costume (it clearly would have come home covered in who knows what), but she loved her glow-in-the-dark “Trick or Treat” t-shirt.
And speaking of her costume, I think we succeeded in topping the Princess Leia outfit from last year (which was tough!). Our adorable little Rockford Peach… A League of Their Own is one of my all-time favorite movies, and the costume turned out even better than I had imagined. It was almost too much to handle.
I found the dress and hat patch on Etsy [ you can purchase from a few different places but here is a link to one COSTUME ( click here ) or you can purchase the pattern click here ], the red hat on Amazon, and the red socks at Old Navy.
We borrowed a baseball glove from her cousin Jack, but it didn’t stay on for long.
As soon as Josh got home from work, we headed out to trick-or-treat.
Ava was ready to go!
We had practiced saying “Trick or Treat” for a few weeks, and she loved saying it at each house. I was so proud of her.
Some friends joined us as well.
