Charlie Brown

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009 by Mom

Yep.  My bald little man was Charlie Brown for Halloween this year.  And what a perfect Charlie Brown he made.  That’s his dog Snoopy too.

He went trick or treating for the first time this year and he was a pro from the beginning.  Not shy at all when it came to asking for candy.  In fact, he learned that if he stood there long enough staring at the homeowners, they would eventually give him a second treat. They couldn’t resist his charm.

Did you know that his daddy played Charlie Brown once in an elementary play?  How perfect is that!  Two Charlie Browns in one family.

Happy Hump Day

Panda Spider

October is one of my favorite months.  I used to love dressing up for Halloween and still do.  Now that I have two little ones, it’s even more fun! Grace has her own opinions on what she wants to wear now but Cole has no clue yet and I’m taking advantage of it.

We pulled out old costumes recently and I let the kids try on the costumes they wore for their first Halloween.  If you recall, Grace was a panda and Cole was a spider.  Unfortunately for Grace she was too big for both but managed to have some fun with Cole’s spider hat.

I was amazed that Cole fit the panda outfit.  What a cute panda he makes much like his sister.

Here is was reminiscing about his times as a spider.

But the hat had to go.  You’ll have to see what Cole will be this year!  Let’s just say it’s very apropos.


As posted on sister’s blog we took the kids to the pumpkin patch to pick out their pumpkins.  While Grace and Ava were hopping away in the jump house, Cole had one thing on his mind.  To find his pumpkin!

Was this his pumpkin?  No.  Too big.

Is this the one?  Nope.  Right color but still too big.

Ah ha!  This is the perfect pumpkin.

Job done.  Time to go home!

Grace found her perfect pumpkin too.  Here they are back at home admiring their choices.
