Cute Little "Things"

We had our 1st of many COSTUME PARTIES last night. 
An annual Family Halloween Carnival & the boys were excited to get to wear their costumes. 
My 4 year old decided about a month ago that he wanted to be THING 1 from Cat in the Hat. 
I figured they would be an easy costume to make, so I thought it was a great idea:)

I found these Blue Supermodel Bob wigs at Walmart and chopped them up a bit with some scissors. 
The red long sleeved shirts & red sweatpants are also courtesy of Walmart, $3 each.
I sewed on some white felt that I had on hand & wrote THING 1 & THING 2 in permanent marker...
Now...for the CAT IN THE HAT...
my sweet little 3 month old got the part & I just pulled out a black turtleneck onsie that I had, sewed on a red felt "bowtie" and made a HAT out of red & white felt. I drew on a black nose & whisker with eyeliner(they have mostly rubbed off in this picture, since this was at the end of the party)
They were ADORABLE!
My goal the next time they get all dressed up, is to get a good picture of all 3 of them together! :)
