Last year, Cullen was only ten days old on Halloween. He wore a little pumpkin hat, and I turned our front porch light off because I didn’t feel like dealing with trick or treaters and a newborn. This year is totally different. Cullen is still too young to really get into the holiday, but it’s always fun to dress up and do something silly.
His dad and I are both avid runners (or at least we used to be in the pre-baby era), and a friend sent us this idea to do a mini marathoner costume. I am sure that he will want us to buy all sorts of giant, plushy costumes with wigs and accessories in years to come, so this year I thought we’d keep it simple and do something homemade. We pieced together a lot of things we already had with a few new things – I think it turned out so cute!

The total cost was only about $30 with the articles that I already had on hand!
