Costumes on Parade

Halloween is just around the corner. I thought I'd take a stroll down memory lane of all the Halloweens past...


Travis--the tiniest Superman ever!

Only home from the hospital for 10 days. We bought the smallest size bunting costume the store had, but I still had to remake it so that even came close to fitting!


Travis--a cuddly lion

This was his first year to actually trick-or-treat and he thought going out into the neighborhood at night such a bizarre thing to do. Later, he had his first taste of a candy bar!


Travis--Bob the Builder

It was about 85 degrees this year and I put him in a flannel shirt and overalls. I think he was running fever by the end of the night. All in all, not a great year for trick-or-treating :(


Travis--the world's cutest magician!

A homemade cape by Mommy! The hat had a false bottom from which a Beanie Baby rabbit could be pulled! I never let him look in the mirror after I drew the mustache for fear that he's smear it off. Gotta say--my favorite costume ever!


Cole--a sweet monkey!

Even at 3 months, we knew it would be appropriate. Love the banana peel ontop of his head.


We were living in an apartment waiting for our house to be completed and Travis wore this costume everywhere! We got lots of giggles in the parking lot.


Batman and Robin
The one and only year I succeeded in getting them to coordinate! Loved this dynamic duo!


Cole--Buzz Lightyear

Travis--Optimus Prime

This Halloween was actually my first blog post ever! It's almost been a year of blogging...

Coming soon in 2008...a little Speed Racer and Harry Potter!
