Dr. Seuss is hands-down the favorite children’s author in our house, which made selecting Wyatt’s Halloween costume a no-brainer. He wasn’t really sure what to think when I told him he was going to be Cat in the Hat for Halloween. He didn’t actually grasp what that meant until we put the costume on him and he looked at himself in the mirror. He was quite enamored with himself—almost as if he truly believed he was indeed Cat in the Hat! As for Avery’s costume, I just couldn’t resist when I saw it--and it just so happened to fit with the theme of Cat in the Hat. This age is so fun because you can dress them in anything you want without much, if any, protest.Trick-or-treating was very interesting. It took us a good 45 minutes just to get off our our street, as most of our time was spent trying to explain to Wyatt that just because someone answered the door, it didn't give him an invitation to just barge in and stay for tea. He also had a difficult time understanding why he couldn't eat every single piece of candy right away. Therefore, we spent a lot of time lying down in the middle of the street pouting! It's a good thing we started off on our street. It didn't take him long to get the hang of it--although he never actually said "trick-or-treat" or "thank you". It's very strange, but he has a problem using socially appropriate terms such as "please", "thank you", and "sorry". He can definitely say them, but for some reason he feels very awkward having to say them at the appropriate times. Oh well...maybe next year!
Gotta love those sugar highs... my favorite part is the crashing to sleep afterwards. :) Sounds like you had a very fun Halloween! The kids look so cute in their costumes!
That goldfish costume is beautiful! (You know...if a goldfish costume can really be "beautiful"!)
Love both costumes! I have no idea how you got Wyatt to hold still long enough to paint his face!
Love the video (noticed Private Practice on) and the costumes! Thanks for the pictures you sent in the mail, we will add them to our fridge collection!
Love the costumes! I haven't ever seen a Dr. Suess costume!
That video was funny! Too cute!
My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
