Halloween is in 11 days. Spencer is excited to go trick-or-treating. I'm excited because we close on the new house the day before Halloween!
Halloween preparation at our house:
The boys got matching monster shirts.
Spencer and I made a Q-tip skeleton.
Spencer has a costume.
I convinced him, again, that he didn't really want to be a garbage truck. Last year I told him we'd do it this year because last year I didn't want to make a garbage truck costume since I was pregnant and tired. This year I genuinely think he would be miserable walking around in a box all night. He thought about it and agreed. We went to Target to look for costumes and he fell in love with this Elmo one. He's worn it every day this week.
Elliott has a costume.
He's going to be Winnie the Pooh. They have similarly shaped bodies.
I doubt that Winnie the Pooh would actually wear slippers with his own image on them, but, whatever.
Elliott also has a "My 1st Halloween" onesie. I saw an actual high temperature in the 70's (nevermind that it was 79) on the 7 day forecast, so he might not burn up in long sleeves.
We made footprint ghost art. It's not a holiday without footprint art.
