Happy Halloween 2013!
Yesterday during our dress rehearsal for the big Halloween night, Will took a look at his monkey suit and said, “Brown. No. Don’t want monkey!” and ran away. So tonight I attempted to distract him with a banana while sneakily tried to get the costume on. His reaction? The same - he wanted nothing to do with monkey. I didn't want a tearful monkey and so for Halloween 2013, Will went as his dapper self. :)
[side note: it never occurred to me that Will, who's turning 2 in 15 days, would have an opinion on his costume. i borrowed the monkey suit from my friend thinking that it saved me some money. next year, i am definitely letting him have a say.]
Our sweet cupcake was giddy and excited the entire time. I had bought the cupcake costume last year, along with the fish. After rocking her fish costume for her school parade, she decided she wanted to be cupcake instead for the big trick or treat.
After some obligatory photos, we left our sleepy neighborhood and crashed my friend's neighborhood for some chocolates. It was a lot of fun hanging out with Sully and butterfly. We hit up more than a dozen of houses before calling it the night, just as the rain came down.
As a mom, I love documenting each Halloween (or any other major holidays) with pictures of the kids. I hope you got some good shots of your little ones! And more importantly, some delicious treats.
