Madeline is one of my favorite books from childhood, so I had dreams of making Piper a mini Madeline. Before I knew it Saturday rolled around and I still didn’t have any costume plans for her, so I put her in this little Pooh Bear costume Scofield wore when he was her age. I had to dress up for Halloween at work, and had a blue dress in my costume so threw together a Madeline look. Since the theme at work was “storybook characters”, I decided I’d go with the same theme for Piper and I. Storybook Characters for Halloween: Madeline and Winnie the Pooh it is!
Piper was so excited about her costume until she put it on. Before she got dressed she’d point to it and say “pooh bear,” but once she was in her get up “pooh bear” changed to “all done,” and she kept throwing the hat off. We went around the neighborhood and she trick or treated at 4 houses, then we ended the evening with white chicken chili and her first reese’s cup. It was a low key, but fun family evening.
