so this year was a big deal! he was going to wear the above whoopi cushion that jill & i made him last year, but i have no idea where it is & we failed to find it before leaving for the kiwanis park festivities yesterday. i was also going to borrow a monkey costume from a friend, but we never got around to going by their house & picking it up. so at 2:30pm yesterday afternoon we decided on max from where the wild things are! i immediately drove to joanne's for fabric & details. everything i bought was half off so his costume cost me under $10! & it was made in under 2 hours (with the help of auntie jill again, of course!) & we were almost on time! thanks in huge part to melissa & stoli for picking up dinner!
(i have an infinity for this book, because a)i love it. b) i painted a mural of one of the scenes from it in the orphanage in honduras. if i can dig that picture up later i'll add it. & finn has one of the monsters & max in a stuffed animal in his crib.)
enjoy a few pictures :)
from last night. i'll be posting more from this later...
& then today. our little max.
really not a fan of the hat part. i wasn't either because i couldn't figure out how to sew it!!!
aha! i got it off. mommmmmm.
trying to catch up with the big kids, nathan & isabelle.
his very first house ever. we taught him to say trick or treat & it came out "eeh erree eeeh" & then he'd grab two or three fistfuls of candy & say "tank you" with his hand doing the sign language motion but his version covers his mouth so it's all garbled. pretty darn cute.
starting to peeter out... but excited about his loot.
with his fellow trick or treaters! here he is assuming his character for the picture's sake of course. isabelle was dorothy & so precious. nathan was spiderman & chased isabelle around with his hand making web shooting noises. hilarious. & my little man kace was a gorilla & he is just about the most precious thing ever!
happy halloween! i had to post this for my mom & dad who both called tonight demanding pictures! ya happy? now i'm pooped & my tummy is a little funny from all the candy i borrowed from finn! g'night everyone.
