When my daughter was three years old, she dressed up as an LSU Cheerleader for Halloween. She was adorable! We always went trick-or-treating in my parents’ neighborhood in New Orleans. Dad stayed home and manned the candy bowl and Mom walked the block with Olivia and I. This arrangement served a dual purpose for Mom. First, of course, she got to hang out with her granddaughter and giggle at all the shenanigans in the streets. Second, walking down the sidewalk allowed her to enjoy the satisfying crunch of acorns that she’d always go out of her way to step on. I have to admit, it was a little addicting.
I had one job. Olivia wouldn’t carry her pumpkin once it got about a 1/4 of the way full, so I carried it for her. Mom’s job (besides crunching acorns) was to operate the flashlight to make sure our little cheerleader didn’t trip on anything.
This was also the year that Olivia thought she was being invited in every time someone answered the door. She saw the inside of everyone’s house on the block, until we got to the house that had two doors…a regular one and a clear glass storm door. Our neighbor opened the inside door, and before she could open the storm door, Miss Olivia tried to barge on in….and smashed right into the glass door. Poor little thing looked up at our neighbor on the other side of the glass. Her little face was simply stunned. The next thing we knew, Olivia’s pumpkin was the recipient of their entire bowl of candy. We went back to Mom’s after that house to cheer for our Snickers and Junior Mints windfall.
We made the tiny purple cheerleader skirt that Olivia wore that year. (When I say “we”, I mean “Mom”.) It took just a few minutes and, when paired with a sweatshirt she already had, we created a small, adorable cheerleader ready to take the field!
It’s always so much fun choosing what to be for Halloween! Making the costumes yourself makes it even sweeter! Here is a collection of DIY Halloween Costumes that includes an Olaf and 12 Elsa costumes!
