BRINGING CANDY CORN TO LIFE

Last year, I was reading a friend's blog and saw her son in this hysterical/adorable candy corn costume. I asked her if we could borrow it right away because I thought Stella would make an absolutely perfect candy corn this year.

I am now proud to be able to present to you the proof that Stella does indeed make the cutest candy corn you have ever seen. And thanks to me having had special "getting used to wearing the costume" sessions, she wore it all night with delight.


Brent: "Stella, you look delicious--I must eat you!"
Stella: "Wait, Dad! I may look delicious, but am still your baby! Don't eat me!"


Brent: "Stella, your job is to get all of the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups that you can!"
Stella: "Got it!"

Side note: I don't know very many people that actually really like or buy candy corn, but my Grandma Evans always did...every year. She really liked it, I think. So I can't help but think of her as I post these pictures, and imagine what a kick she would have gotten out of seeing her little granddaughter Stella dressed as one of her favorite treats. I'm sure she saw her though.

All fun and games (and the cutest candy corn I've ever seen) until the tears came for your Gram. I'm sure she was delighted with Stella, as we are all.
I am also somewhat delighted with Brent, but would have been more so, if he was a candy corn too.

I love candy corn, I buy a bag every few months until I have a complete sugar high to last me a while. Stella looks absolutely adorable!

Grant loves candy corn. And even I, think candy corn looks adorable on Stella.

it is a great costume! and what a smart idea to have some time to play with it and wear it early. I got a text from Trevor of something he overheard between his six year old and Erica: "Mom, rule number 181: if you have a big kid, buy a bigger costume!" :)

She does look so cute! I'm glad you had plenty of time for her to get used to it, because it really does look adorable on her.

It is official. She is the cutest. It almost makes me want to like the taste of candy-corns (like your grandma) but I'll stick to the reeses with Brent
