I mentioned yesterday that I am not one for spooky Halloween things. But I do LOVE Halloween. I mean, just seeing those tiny little people smiling ear to ear and dressed up in the cutest little outfits is enough to make my day.
I have one little one who is still (sort of) okay with Mama helping to select his Halloween costume. But I fear this might be the last year! So this post is for all of you Mamas who still have tiny little ones to dress up.
Enjoy it! (And just try to look at these toddler Halloween costumes without smiling!)

DIY Scuba Diver Halloween Costume from Delineate Your Dwelling – Your kids can pretend to be deep sea divers with this do-it-yourself tutorial. Those scuba tanks are inspired.
Wind-Up Doll Costume from Hart + Sew – Use your child’s own clothes as the basis for this costume. Then put together the wind-up key using various cardboard pieces.

Doesn’t that just give you your cuteness quotient for the day? That lumberjack? Please!! I’m going to try my absolute hardest to get Ben on board for that one.
I hope it gives you an idea or two for your little monsters.
Happy Thursday friends! Thank you so much for reading.
