Halloween 2009

This year for Halloween Zeke carefully selected his costume 4 or 5 weeks in advance. He saw a picture of a "Happy Skeleton" in a magazine and declared that he REALLY wanted to be that for Halloween. I went online...scoped out some options and ordered his costume. When it arrived, there was just a small problem...that was it...the costume was WAY too small. I ordered the largest size that the "Happy Skeleton" came in which was a 4-6. Being that Zeke is only 5, I thought surely this costume would work...because Zeke is so big I thought it might be a little snug...but surely it would work. Well, when he tried it on the pants were a good 10 inches off the ground...the body of the outfit, fit like a leotard and I could just barely get the hood to go over his head. It looked a little on the rediculous side, but Zeke insisted on wearing it. Since I had already bought it...I let him.

Kaelyn chose to be Tinkerbell...she wavered at one point, thinking she might consider Cinderella...but in the end Tink won.

We drove to Baytown to meet up with the Hanna's to Trick-or-Treat. Crazy enough...even with the cold weather we still had to apply mosquitoe spray to the kids AGAIN this year...I couldn't believe it. The Wims actually made it past 8:00 this year which is a record for us. It ended up being a late night but at least we gain an extra hour!
