Halloween 2011

Running behind as usual, but such is life these days. I am not much of a Halloween person anyways and with Joshua being so newly home, I wasn't sure whether we would do anything at all. At the last minute (as in the afternoon of the 31st), I found a simple (and cheap) puppy dog costume at Target and decided we would at least dress Joshua up, take a few pictures, and stop by a few of our neighbors' houses. I dressed him in khakis and a white t-shirt and then fed him dinner. After dinner, all we had to do was slip the costume on and plop on a little brown eye liner for his nose. We were back in time for him to take a bath and be in bed at his usual time. I just didn't want to disrupt his routine at this point and seeing too many people would have caused him a lot of anxiety. So here is the cutest little puppy dog (at least I think so):

And here's what Joshua really thought about his costume, notice he was not wearing the hood part in the pictures above:

And 3 days later:

Oh sure, now he likes it - mommy lesson #100 (don't ask me what 1-99 were, but I'm sure there's at least that many so far), introduce Halloween costume early so as to increase the chances of your little one actually wearing and liking it!
