Playing dress up

Halloween was short and sweet this year. Ian was a cowboy, complete with chaps, and Sawyer was a bumble bee. Jeremy couldn't resist joining in so he wore a cowboy hat too, although no one seemed to offer him any candy. We walked up and down our block avoiding the "scary" looking homes and about 30 minutes in, Ian asked if we could go home. They were very happy with their costumes and with their loot, but mostly with their costumes... they loved dressing up.

Notice Sawyer's little stinger? And remember these two from last year when Jeremy wasn't sure he wanted any of us trick-or-treating? Well I've finally converted him over to candy and costumes.


Earlier in the day, I took the boys to story time at the library. They had mentioned letting the kid's dress up so Ian wore the Darth Vader outfit that Jeremy's parents had sent him. He was decked out from head to foot and walked into the room proudly and sat among bunny rabbits and fairies. The best part came when all was quiet except for the story being read and suddenly I hear this heavy breathing. I look over and see Ian watching the teacher intently yet doing the best Darth Vader impression I have ever heard from him. Priceless.

Jeremy does seem like he is enjoying himself a bit more than last year. The other two boys are so adorable. Sounds like they had a good day.

Just so sweet Andrea. I can still remember the fun we had as kids dressing up for Halloween. It all just seemed like innocent fun, and I'm glad you are able to do it.
My comments here seem to all bounce back to my spam folder - so not sure if you're getting them. This computer stuff just confuses me so much of the time :-)
Have a blessed sunday.
