halloween chicken

This week the i faces challenge theme is Halloween Dress-Up. I couldn't resist digging up this photo of Mabry from last Halloween to submit. I loved the chicken costume the first time I saw it at the store years and years ago. Dan refused to let me purchase it. He said that it would be a waste of money if we weren't even pregnant. A few years later when I was pregnant this costume was the first thing I purchased. It was buried in a clearance rack and I knew it would be at least a year or better before the baby could wear it, but I didn't care. It was just so cute.

When Mabry was finally able to wear it last Halloween Dan and I dressed up in white shirts with poster board yolks on the front to take her trick-or-treating. Proving once and for all (at least in our house) that the egg came before the chicken.


  1. Oh my gosh! That is really an adorable costume! You want to know something funny, I wouldn't think that chickens would be such a popular costume but I think that is the most frequent thing I have seen this week! Chickens. Chickens. and more chickens : ) Very sweet though. Love that it was the first outfit you got! : )
