This year was fun. Ephram got to experience the anticipation of trick or treating and I had enough energy to put Alwyn in costume (this was not the case last year). We went to about 15 houses, double what I did with Ephram last year. So glad our neighborhood is growing at such a rapid pace. The Costumes: I really wanted Ephram to pick his costume this year since it was the first year he understood what Halloween was, but it still took awhile for him to settle on something. When he finally said Firefighter and I knew right away I'd have Alwyn be a Dalmatian, and we were locked in. Of course he changed his mind to a princess a few times after that, but he didn't push it too much.
Since both boys are a little sick this week we settled for front step photos this year. Did the Photo Tips help you with your Halloween photos this year?
I'm sure the "cute" costumes will end in a few years so I'm grateful that they are still at an age I can make their costumes and have them be sweet looking.
