Bella’s Halloween Costume for 2012 – Emily the Owl

I’ve loved owls since I became pregnant with Bella.  In fact, her nursery has an owl theme.  I wanted to dress her up as an owl last year for Halloween, but all of the cute owl costumes were too expensive for my tastes.  I can’t see spending $50 or $60 on a costume for one […]
