Since late this summer Andrew has insisted that he was going to be a rocket for Halloween. His inspiration came from a spaceship movie we borrowed from the library. I could not convince him that an astronaut would be cool, those costumes are easy to find. Nope only a rocket would do. So I started looking for a pattern in August and could find none. They don't exist. So my sewing teacher and I kinda made our own, and Andrew and I were happy with the results. (Thank you Shellie Brewer)!
The plan was for Ryan to be a space alien, but after a search for a cute costume pattern failed, I decided that he would be his favorite animal, a dog. It was an easy one to purchase, so I didn't make his. He loved his costume and kept hugging himself, signing dog, barking, panting, and trying out his new words, "Trick or Treat." I think he was much happier as a puppy than he would have been as an alien.
We trick or treated at Nanie's house on Thursday. She gave each boy big pumpkins filled with candy and toys.
We visited Daddy at work on Halloween and the sweet ladies there shared their candy.
We went trick or treating in our neighborhood last night and came home and ate a pumpkin cheesecake. It was the first cheesecake I can ever remember making. This pic was taken right before we started around the neighborhood. I loved this picture of the boys. Ryan looking precious, Andrew making silly faces and looking like he is going to wretch.
