Pumpkin Patch + Our DIY Halloween Costumes

The pumpkin patch is a MUST on our Fall bucket list!
I got all teary eyed a few days before we went thinking of how
the kids get bigger and bigger each year... thus creating a new
experience each time we go. Cue the flood gates. Momma is tender-hearted.

Since our boys are so close in age, they usually want to have or do whatever
the other is having or doing. It's cute... most of the time! *clears throat*
Halloween is no exception! They've been tigers and train conductors together in the past...

But in light of their passion for soccer and the upcoming World Cup,
I give you Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo!!!

OFFICIAL pro soccer gear is scary pricey - so we used iron-on letters
and numbers from Hobby Lobby (less than $10) to add to these cotton, long-sleeve
t-shirts! They'll be sporting these OVER thermal underwear and hoodies for Halloween!
Baby shin guards and a soccer ball too?! Be still my heart.

FUN FACT: Did you know that Chipotle offers $3 burritos on Halloween,
in most locations (check local), after 4pm to all customers dressed in costume?!

They donate up to $1,000,000 from the event to their Chipotle Cultivate Foundation -
a non-profit that is committed to creating sustainable and healthful food supply!!!

I know, that little tidbit is worthy of a standing "O".

Pin It!


  1. Your little boys are so cute! When I was in college chipotle did free burritos on Halloween if you came in dressed in tinfoil costumes!

    1. Aww thanks, Chandelle! Yea, last year they were TWO dollars! What's up with that, Chipotle?! Haha. It's still a fun deal!!! Happy Fall!!! XO
