5, 4, 3, 2, 1.... Blast Off! | Halloween Costume Party Link-up

In case you couldn't tell from the photo (and the title), Noah is going to be an astronaut for Halloween this year!  He's super excited about it and loves telling people, though I often have to translate for him ;)  Since actual Halloween can get rather hectic, we decided to dress him up this past weekend and do a little photo shoot :)  I also find it helpful to do a dry run and make sure we aren't missing anything.  While the costume is complete, we learned that Noah isn't a huge fan of the helmet.  Thankfully he still looks like an astronaut even without it on.  But I'm trying to convince him that astronauts have to wear their helmets in order to go up in their rocket ship!

^^^ 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... Blast Off!

^^^ I promise he's not mad... he's just very enthusiastic about his blast offs!

^^^ Even though he wasn't in love with his helmet, he did find it funny when I decided to wear it instead!

I will be back on Monday, November 2nd, to recap our Halloween.  But I wanted to let you all know that the Halloween Costume Party Link-up I'm hosting with StephanieJessCrystalJessicaJennifer officially opens today!  So please scroll to the bottom and link up any of your Halloween costume and celebration posts with us.  And we have a new hashtag to use when posting Halloween pictures to social media.  We finally have a hashtag that hasn't been used before... #COSTUMEPTY15

And since we do so many crafts over here, I thought it was only fitting to do a rocket ship one this week!  

I found the idea on Pinterest and thought Noah would love doing it!  It involved rocket ships, scissors, glue, and stickers... what more could he want!  And I liked it because it involved practicing writing his name!  Simply cut a square of construction paper for each letter in your child's name.  Cut a triangle to be the top of the rocket ship.  Then let your child glue them to the piece of paper and then have them write their name on the rocket ship.  While Noah totally wrote his name all by himself for his preschool interview, he has yet to do it again... I'm still shocked he did it the first time!  So I helped him write the N, A, and H, and he wrote the O (I told him to draw a circle) all on his own.  He then got to decorate the paper with as many star stickers that he wanted :)  My husband says we should have added some jet fuel packs to the side, but I rather like the simplicity of it just the way it is ;)

I am also linking up with Elizabeth and Amanda again for their Countdown to Halloween :)


  1. Jet fuel packs?! lolol that is so totally something my husband would mention. We get so excited about our crafts and he mentions a way to "improve" them. Too funny. Will be linking our costumes soon!

  2. What a cool costume! It never ceases to amaze me how elaborate costumes are. This link up is awesome, we will definitely link up next week!

  3. Amazing! What a cool costume! I can't wait to get some photos of my littles in their costumes and link up! So fun!

  4. What a fun and easy craft! and Noah looks awesome in his costume!! I have been sO LAZY this holiday season... I bought Scarlett's costume and we may have done one craft so far. I'm hoping to get my butt in gear for Christmas lol

  5. What an adorable astronaut!! And the rocketship craft couldn't be more appropriate!

  6. That is a really cute craft. And I'm impressed with just the O let alone the whole name! Aria has only done an A type letter before.
