Yesterday morning I held Mommy School at my house, so we did a little Halloween Party to celebrate. All the kids dressed up in their costumes, we read a few Halloween books, we decorated Halloween cookies, and we had a potluck brunch/dessert party to use all those pumpkin flavored foods we’ve been hoarding on Pinterest but haven’t made. I made this. There was no time for a picture since we all devoured it while it was still warm. With all the other amazing treats everyone else brought, we all left on the verge of slipping into a sugar coma.
After we ate, we took the kids outside and attempted a group picture. Not completely successful, but at least all the children were up on the bench and nobody fell off during the picture.
Being outside also gave me a chance to take a few pictures of Peanut in his football uniform. Seriously, how could I not? That big diaper bum in stretchy pants was irresistible.
It took us forever to decide on a costume for him. There were a million ideas on Pinterest, but none that I just loved. Plus, I was looking for something simple, fun, and also something he would keep on for more than thirty seconds (he’s getting quite opinionated about his outfits these days).
I don’t know what sparked the idea, but one day it just came to me — BYU football player. We always talk about how our solid little boy will be a football player one day, and since both Philip and I graduated from BYU, there wasn’t a more perfect costume.
Thanks to Google and some coaching from Philip, it turned out better than I could have hoped. Definitely keeping this one for future baby boys (or even next Halloween if Peanut hasn’t completely grown out of it!).
