Trick or Treat

Ryan had a hard time choosing what he wanted to be for Halloween. His first thought was that he and Jack should be bananas because he had seen the costume in a catalog and in his words, it, "cracked him up." Over the course of a few days, he repeatedly went back to the catalog, looked at the picture, and laughed. Next, he thought he should be a monkey, but Jack should still be a banana. One Saturday, Uncle Royce took him to a car show, which marked a turning point in costume picking. He decided to become a race car driver. We looked for a costume at Target, but to no avail. I finally found his costume on Amazon. I then asked him what he thought Jack should be if he was going to be a race car driver. He was thoughtful and quiet for a moment, then said, "he should be a stop sign... no... a stoplight." I thought it was so clever and realized this was something I could make. A little felt, cut a few circles, and voila! A Halloween costume.

This was Ryan the morning of his costume party at preschool

This picture shows how much Jack adores and studies Ryan. I love it.

A great smile on my little stoplight

Aunt Julie got into the Halloween festivities and dressed up as a cat while she passed out candy. Her costume was really cute. Check out her blog for her other and more hilarious costume.

Since we trick or treated out in my parents neighborhood, we had to go by car and load and unload in car seats each time, which was quite tiring in the end. Maybe next year we'll walk a neighborhood instead. All in all, we had a good time.
