Halloween Party

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Ian was invited to his first Halloween party. I was surprised at how well he did, since he can sometimes be unpredictable in the evening on weekends. The other two kiddos are over a year old, so he was mostly mesmerized by watching them play I think. Still, I think he had fun. Some of the swag he received: homemade crayons in the shape of skulls, candy (he shared with mommy and daddy), stain eraser (bar of Ivory soap!), mummy decoration, Frankenstein trick or treat bag, Charlie Brown “The Great Pumpkin is Coming” shirt, sunglasses and stickers. Ian gave his friends crocheted Frankenstein dolls that his mommy made for him. We all had fun! Plus, little kids in costumes are HILARIOUS.

Right before mommy let him face-plant. Cue tears.


No-legged Frankies.

Dinos, bears and robots, oh my!

Each child in attendance was ecstatic to put on their costume and pose for photos.

“I really like your costume, Dino.”
