Halloween Costumes this Year?

Hey Everyone!

Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday and I have every intention of celebrating, even if that means just dressing up and hanging out in my house this year! 

I am all about costumes and I am so excited to see that Target is expanding their line of adaptive costumes to include even more costumes this year, and even with adult sizes! 

I am not one to buy my costumes because I LOVE making my own costumes that incorporate my wheelchair. In the past I have been Princess Peach Mario Kart style where I dressed in a pink fluffy dress with a crown and all, then put 3 balloons on the back of my pink wheelchair and even had fake turtle shells to complete the look. Last year I was Sansa from Game of Thrones and turned my wheelchair into a throne. Who knows what I'll be this year! 

What will you all be? I loved seeing the other halloween post with pictures of costumes from previous years, but what are your plans for this year?

    As a quick update,  after a busy month of getting married and losing our dog on our wedding day (and searching for him for 4 days afterward!!), my husband and I went simple this year as Daphne and Fred from Scooby Doo! 

    What did you do?

    Love your costumes!!!  Congratulations on your wedding and finding your pup!  We let our kids dress up this year, but COVID left us rather costumeless for once-- My husband Geoff LOVES Halloween.  But here are two of our favorites to make you smile!
