are we all recovered from an overload of sugar? i mean...let's be real. october was sugar insanity for us. we had birthday party prep // the actual party // followed a few days later by halloween. the jeans are feeling...snug. thank god you can find me in my athleisure wear (because i always have every intention of working out...i just don't always get there.)

anyway...i'm proud to report i've only eaten one random, bite-sized snickers...but i did eat the frosting off of sawyer's birthday cake last know...because i'm trying to stay away from gluten.

all this to say - we had a fantastic halloween. i mean...can we talk about it? look at these unicorns!

in this fourth year of dressing kaye up...i finally didn't procrastinate. i had a costume ready for both girls and i even got them dressed early so i could take all their unicorn glory out to a "pasture" (one of our fields) to do some unicorn frolicking. while the lighting wasn't ideal...i still crack up looking at my little unicorns galloping around.

uh oh - unicorn down...

not to worry - super quick recovery.

i would say the highlight of our evening was when i got in a semi-argument with an eight year old who informed kaye that she wasn't a unicorn. i overheard the harsh statement and saw the hurt look on kaye's face and asked the girl why kaye wasn't a unicorn. she informed me that unicorns don't have wings. only pegai (plural for pegasus) have wings. i then insisted pegai don't have horns...she swore they did. i told her to have fun trick-or-treating. little unicorn just so happened to want to wear pink wings while yes. in unicorn does have wings and she does fly. now move along eight year old girl picking on a four year old.

(i was later informed unicorns with wings are called alicorns. who knew?)

we didn't let that gal ruin our night. kaye enthusiastically yelled TRICK-OR-TREAT at each door with one of her gal pals dressed as belle from beauty and the beast. they were the cutest little candy-hustlers. sawyer even managed to snag a few candy bars and said thank you after each one.

it was such a fun night and i couldn't wipe the smile from my face with all the cuteness.

i'm already looking forward to next year. maybe my farmer and i will get in on the dress-up action. i can totally see him as a handsome prince.

for those wondering!!!

we snagged our unicorn horns from the sweetest little etsy shop - Ava Rae Design Co

they are comfortable and durable and i can't recommend enough! they were delivered super quickly and both my gals have enjoyed wearing them on multiple occasions!

their little unicorn tails were a simple DIY - just snag yourself some elastic and tulle from your local fabric store and boom - you have yourself a tail.

easiest costume ever.
