Three Costumes. One Kid.


Halloween might be my favorite holiday... after Christmas, of course. It's just plain fun. Getting dressed, the music, the feeling, the air, the FUN. I was excited for Walker's Halloween this year because he could have more fun with it than being so small last year. The weeks leading up to the day he pointed at every decoration on our walk and was infatuated with scary rats and pumpkins.

On Halloween weekend the first place we took Walker was to a little shopping center with a farmer's market and all kinds of things for kids. He got to pet lots of fun animals in the petting zoo! Then he got to play some sports and just have a ball. Now, it was hot so I decided to throw him together as Dennis the Menace. He had this shirt in his drawer and I ordered red overalls. He acts like Dennis so he should be him. He was a little hot in his outfit, but so cute.

Saturday night began with a block party at the Fong's culdesac. We had a blast. Walker got to hang out with lots of kids, but he spent most of his time climbing the stairs to go look at someone's decorations. We stayed for a bit then decided to head to Container Park and old Vegas called Fremont Street. There's so much people watching! Walkie played on the really cool playground at Container Park with the other kids then we pushed him around downtown. The atmosphere was just amazing as everyone was in costume. I was a devil and Nick was Lloyd from Dumb & Dumber... should have gotten a picture, eh?! Walker was Mickey Mouse. He was so excited about this outfit and kept pointing to it, but I guess since it was dark that night he could care less. I think he was hot? He sure did look adorable!

 Halloween night was finally upon us! We were pretty exhausted by the weekend, which I didn't mention Nick's brother was in town so they were out until all hours of the morning, whole other story, but the guys napped until about 5:30! I threw Walkie in his costume and we were ready to hit the streets!!! GG bought him this dino outfit. It was cuddly and so comfy, too. We had a blast in the neighborhood. Some people go all out so it was amazing with all the colors, decorations and lights. We met some really neat people, too. I love having a neighborhood that does neat things like this because in some places it is just dead. So many people just turn out their lights. We got home and had way too much candy in our pumpkin! Oh man, Halloween is a strange thing, people give you their groceries! One house even gave a little bag of toys! Just small probably Dollar Store items. So neat!

Three costumes. One kid. Hey, it's all good. The day after Halloween I felt the pressure of Christmas creeping upon us. Guess that's just the way it is these days. My little monster's outfits are actually hanging back up because his Daddy thinks he can wear them on a rainy day. Sounds good to me. Anytime you get to dress up and just have fun is the perfect day.
