Now that Halloween is a month away, it's time to start thinking about a costume for Emmylou. Although I probably can't top last year's Suri Cruise and Goldfish costumes, I have managed to find a few that are pretty cute. And I'm leaving it up to our faithful readers to choose which one she wears! So, here are the ones to pick from:

Carmen Miranda...


A monkey (she's good at making the monkey noises)...


Pretty as a peacock...


Or, her favorite animal, the "Woof"...


Please leave a comment with your vote, even if it's anonymously or if we don't know you (or if you have a better suggestion than the ones above). Gary and I have a bet as to how many people will vote and I want to win, so get your friends to vote, too!

Carmen Miranda. Looks like it would suit her personality.

Carmen. Best for keeping her in line when she's a teenager.

Carmen Miranda is adorable,but I'm afraid she'll be so disappointed she can't eat the fruit-her favorite food. I'm thinking continue the animal costumes and go for the peacock-so unique!

I'm sure she'd be cute in any of them but I too like Carmen Miranda. The peacock is my second choice.

I reallly like all of the animal-themed costumes but i think i'm ging to have to vote for Carmen Miranda! She would be SO stinkin' cute in that!!! I think the maracas are a good idea too.

It's hard to decide between Carmen Miranda and the Peacock. It seems that Carmen is winning the vote, but I have to choose the Peacock. It is just so precious!

Love you all,
Mimi

They are all sooo cute, but I have to go with Carmen Miranda. Speaking form experience, the animal cosumtes are so thick and hot and since you are having a Texas Halloween, (94 degrees) she will be stripping out of an animal costume after the first house. We all know that the cuter our kids look the more candy they get for us!!

I haven't voted yet because I'm having a hard time making up my mind. She does love shakers, maracas and anything percussive, so I'm going with Carmen Miranda. The monkey and peacock are both close seconds, but I think it might be really hot in those outfits.

I think you have your answer -- Carmen Miranda, for sure. Allison sent me here to read about your toddler bed adventures since my son is just about ready to get out of his crib. Glad I got to contribute, too!

Alex said...

No, i have the PERFECT costume for Emmylou - a California Raisin. you could so whip one out for her with your stealthy Martha Stewart skills and it would be too awesome and funny!

Becca I have to go with Carmen Miranda, but the peacock would be precious also.

Give Emmylou a hug and kiss from me and the boys.
Luv ya,

I was going to say the Monkey until I saw the Raisin idea...That would be too cool.

Definitely Carmen Miranda with maracas. She will WOW all the homeowners and the candy will come pouring in (not necessarily a good thing!). Love you Becca, Gary and Emmylou--PawPaw

Lindsay said...

I'm Kari's friend. I love the monkey outfit!!!

The Gould Family said...

I love Etsy Emily...and Alex's raisin idea is good. It would be better though if she was a Texas raisin and not a California raisin.

Becca & Christine said...

My mom and I both vote for Carmen Miranda, its adorable!
