Is it too early to be thinking about Halloween?  Not at my house!

It was an Altered Art weekend, recreating 30-year-old "Precious Moments" babies into the cutest little trick-or-treaters!   Originally, each baby wore a pink or blue t-shirt and white diaper.  Now they each have their own special Halloween costume.

First, we have our good little toddler witch.  She wears an orange and polka-dot diaper and real wool cape and hat. 

Next, our shy little clown. 

What pranks do you think they're conjuring up?

Some of the cutest costumes are babies dressed as bumble bees and lady bugs! 

At first, I wasn't sure what costume to give this crawling baby, then it became obvious - why not a black cat? 

And what's Halloween without a devil?  Makes me wonder what's going through his mischievous little mind!

Only 6 more months 'til Halloween!
