Halloween's supposed to be spooky, right?


This is as spooky as it gets when you have a preschooler. I so look forward to the days when he wants to wear something ghoulish with fake blood and guts. I really get into that stuff for some reason. I hope he does too when he gets older. However, for this year I will settle for another cute costume.

His first Halloween he was a skunk. We used to call him "stinky" so it was quite fitting and too cute for words.

The following year I made him a lion costume. Oh how I hated brown yarn after making that mane. Again, a very cute kid on Halloween though.

Then came his first time choosing his own costume...and of course it had to be a pirate. He's quite the pirate fan so it was fun and we all got in on the act.

I was happy to play along, even though it meant wearing a skirt in the cold to trick or treat.

My husband enjoyed it too, despite the pout he's flashing me here. Not sure what his problem is, maybe the clip on earring was hurting him. hehe

And of course the bulldog didn't want to wear his pirate shirt, but too bad, and the lil bugger is so lazy that he kept laying down every couple houses when we were trick or treating (as seen here).

That brings us to this year. This Halloween promises to be even more fun than the last. Now he's almost 4 and really getting into the whole idea of trick or treating and spooky stuff. He loves the Toy Story movies and said he wanted to be Woody. However, one day in Target he saw a Buzz Lightyear costume and HAD to have it. We bought it and tried it on at home, but it was to small. So off I went to find one that fit. I ended up at Toys R Us, and they had the deluxe costume that had wings as well. I KNEW this was the one. He LOVES it! So, while it may not be spooky or creepy, it sure is going to be a fun Halloween.

Too cute! I wanted to dress my son up as Buzz this year but then my daughter was very set on having some sort of "matching" costumes.. so this year we'll have a Little Miss Muffett and a spider "who sat down beside her". I can't wait to get pictures.

That's very cool that he likes Toy Story. I didn't know kids still liked that movie. Geez, I feel like a grandma.

I love them all but the pirate costumes are SO CUTE! We have kind of a pirate obsession in our house since my husband is in the Navy. My MIL keeps sending us little pirate outfits for my son!
