This year for Halloween Will dressed as a Thomas the Train Engineer; Andrew, Bob the Builder; and Hannah, a cat. Will and Andrew's costumes were easy - we already had everything. Hannah's was a bit trickier. Mike and I went to two different stores looking for a cat costume but everything was either too big or too small. While looking around at Target, I found a leopard outfit in a 12-18 month size and had an idea. I bought it along with a black t-shirt that said "Happy Halloween" and some black leggings. When Mike and I got home, I started taking the infant outfit completely apart. I sewed the leopard front piece and one of the sleeves onto the front of the t-shirt and the other sleeve to the back. I attached the tail to the bottom of the t-shirt on the back and the gold bow to the collar. It took about four and a half hours but I am very pleased with the results. The best part was: Hannah loved it. I found the leopard mask at Party Works.

Hannah's face when she saw it: priceless
