"Boo to You" Recap

So, we had a good time trick-or treating last night over in Brooke and Michael's neighborhood. Things did not go as planned to get there, so LM and I arrived, and we were both a little flustered I think. The other kids had on their costumes, so he wanted to put his on. Then, once it was on, he wanted it OFF immediately. He threw a fit and I wasn't very pleased about it. Turns out maybe he was just hungry, because after we ate some pizza, he was ready for that costume and to go "get some candy!"

Wanting the costume OFF!

The start of the pizza...still upset.
And rather bare skinned.

Alien desserts


All the desserts were yummy, alien or not!

Starting to find his Happy Place

Frog costume on - ready to go!

Let me tell you how we got to the tree frog in the first place. Late summer, I started asking LM what he wanted to be for Halloween. He said he wanted to be Muno from Yo Gabba Gabba. So, I ordered that costume. It came, we put it on, he loved it. Then, about a month later, we're sitting at the dinner table and he says, "Mommy, I want to be TREE FROG" for Halloween. But Baby, I thought you were going to be Muno. "No, I be TREE FROG!" So, I did a little Google search and brought up some images of tree frog costumes. Now, I'm not entirely sure where he even got the IDEA of a tree frog, except that he's been pretty into watching Diego in the mornings while we are getting ready for work. Diego has all sorts of animals on there, so I figure that's the source. 

Anyway, these costumes all had a head piece with them. Last year, the lion head piece wasn't such a hit. So, I showed him, and that he would have to wear that as part of the costume. He said, "Like a hat?" I said, yes, I suppose so. He said, "OK!" So, my friends, I ordered that costume. When it arrived, we tried it on, and once it was fully assembled, he said to me, "Mommy, I'm so happy." So, apparently that's all it takes - one tree frog costume - to make the boy happy.

And here is the whole gang.

Then a close up of these two - they were grinning so cutely I had to snap it.

A cute bunch for sure!

Then it was off to the races.

Moments after he realized each house was going to give him CANDY!!!

Silly Minnie, making faces at the cameras

Then on to the other side of the street!

Shortly after Uncle Mark and Uncle Michael fixed LM's shoe covers.
And Daddy arrived!

He said each time, "I got more CANDY!" 
Like this was really interesting.

And so it went...




As the sun set...

Love this one - grainy, but great anyway

Then it was time to check out the stash.


A fun time was had by all!

See you soon.

  1. I think the tree frog was a great idea. We can only hope (and perhaps expect), that all of his future selections will be equally as adorable.
