Pig and Candy Corn

I know this is a little late to be posting the kids in their Halloween costumes. It is better late than never. 
Classic Greta face!

A little background story on the costumes. I found them on craigslist less than a week before Halloween. When I received the email that they were still available it got this mommy-blogger-wanna-be excited! Not because my kids were going to be a pig and a candy corn (which is pretty cool!) but because the costumes belonged to one of my favorite bloggers....mommymishmash herself! YEAH!! Check out her blog HERE and on the Iowa City Press Citizen.  I love her sense of humor and her adventures as a mom. She has made me laugh and cry.  I immediately sent a text to my sister and asked if she thought it would be completely creepy if I told her that I loved her and she could be my best friend  loved the blog. My husband thought I should take my picture with her. Mommy Mishmash is probably very thankful right now that I didn't whip out my phone for a quick pic :) I did end up telling her I was a big fan of her blog. She was very nice about it and didn't act like I was creepy at all. Who knows what she thought when I walked out the door (most likely locking it behind me)!  Thanks to her my kids were the cutest pig and candy corn!


  1. Maggie! These photos are PRICELESS and super (duper) cute! I adored meeting you and certainly would have posed for a shot with you! This just means one thing, we will have to gather ourselves together for a beer and re-capture the moment. :) Your family is beautiful! Keep writing, you have a gift! I look forward to reading your stuff.



    1. Thanks for all your kind words. Meeting up for a beer sounds like a great idea!
