9 Years Ago October 21, 2005

I got to thinking about the boys’ first Halloween.

Ryan was born October 2nd, so this was his first Halloween costume. The hat had a little green stem on the top. His nickname has been Pumpkin ever since.

Nathan was 10 months old for his first Halloween. I remember thinking he would never keep this hood on, but much to my surprise he did. It was made of a very soft brushed fleece and kept him nice and cozy in the stroller.

This is Ryan’s “Rugrats Halloween” costume, it is supposed to be Tommy dressed as Reptar. There was a mask that was too hot and a row of foam scales running from the top of the head down to the tail. He wore this costume every day for a month after Halloween. The deal with the carrot is this: Downtown East Lansing had a weekday afternoon where participating businesses gave out candy to trick-or-treaters, the kids made out like bandits. It was also the day of the farmer’s market, which was still running so it must have been warm that year. Anyway, despite a huge shopping bag stuffed with candy, Ryan saw this huge carrot and just had to have it. The seller washed it off with bottled water and Ryan proceeded to gnaw on it like Bugs Bunny. How do you say no to a 3 year old who wants a delicious fresh carrot instead of mini Snickers and Blow Pops?

P.S. Pictures of the nursery are coming, I promise!

OH! My heart! The cuteness!!

More, please. You don’t have to be a junkie about it like I am (once I start, I just can’t seem to stop until I run out of pictures), but more!
