I was due in December 2010, and our friends have a Halloween party every year. When I was pregnant, I was all belly and I thought if I could somehow make my belly a basketball, I could make the rest of the basketball player costume from items around the house. I cut the belly out of a shirt and used a pair of my husband’s basketball shorts. My husband used an actual basketball as his painting guide and painted “Inflate to 7-9 lbs” right under my belly button.

It was a lot of fun and I tell my daughter that she has had 3 Halloween costumes, a ballerina, tiger and a basketball.
