Ahoy Sailor!!

I can't find any Halloween costumes for the babies because they are too small for most of what is in the stores. The 0-6 month costumes are way too big so I was trying to figure out what I could do with some of the clothes I have. I was experimenting with a pseudo-sailor hat.

Rich liked the hat on the girls but wasn't so fond of this picture of his little boy.

They are not going to be sailors because I only have 1 hat. I'll have to figure out something else.
And it is really not a sailor hat. It reminds me of the hats worn by the some of the French military.

I don't know if this is really military or what. All I know is that when my mom and I were in Paris last summer we were sneaking around taking a lot of pictures of adorable French boys in military garb. We have lots of pictures of the famous places in Paris and artwork but taking pictures of people and naked statues was the most fun. This hat happened to be one of our favorites.

  1. Okay, maybe I am partial to sailors...but these are the best pictures yet! And the babies look good too! Thanks Kate for making the effort to dress 'em up. For those blog onlookers, I have been known to be a notorious trash picker in my neighborhood. Last spring there was a huge dumpster in a driveway that I could not resist. After climbing in I found an older steamer trunk with vintage baby stuff. The sailor suit is one of the tresures - thanks to Oxy-clean!
