Fall is in the air...


I was looking at pictures of last Halloween and searching the internet to see if I could figure out how to make a King Boo costume (from Mario Kart) for Reilly, when I saw the pictures of him last year in his Michael Phelps costume.  This was a last minute costume because I thought he was all set to be Buzz Lightyear, complete with light up wings, until about 30 minutes before we left for the trunk-or-treat at his school.  On one hand, I was thrilled that at age 5 he dared to be different!  On the other hand-- 30 minutes does not a fantastic costume make....but this picture were too funny not to share, and totally reminds me why I love this time of year!   
Have a great weekend!!

Awww he is so cute. It is so fun trying to think up a costume. I would have never thought of this one. Boys are harder to be creative with when it comes to costumes. Great picture..Love the metal..Hugs.
