for halloween we dressed up as mama bear, papa bear and baby bear. niels loved the snuggliest of his costume exceeeept for when the bear hat fell over his face (see above photo). haha but my heart just about exploded every time i looked at his little face all dressed up. i loved halloween pre-baby, but i am officially obsessed with it post-baby. baby/kid costumes are the best and i'm so excited to take little niels out trick or treating in a few years! aaanyways, we had a pretty mellow holiday this year, that included a bridal shower, hanging out with friends at the skate park, two costume parties and retiring to bed early with bowls of ice cream.
