Making A Choice

I am a huge fan of Halloween! I've always loved it...I mean who doesn't enjoy dressing up for a night of fun?! Ok, Rusty doesn't, but I LOVE it!! So I'm trying to pass this love of Halloween down to Bridger boy and one of the ways I am doing this is helping him choose a great costume. Earlier this year he was obsessed with The Incredibles. I really wanted him to be Dash for Halloween, but his love of The Incredibles has faded away. So, why make the kid dress up in something he doesn't care about anymore, right? This month his obsessions have been Sesame Street, Ratatouille, and Thomas the Train. Bridger's sensory overloads helped me easily cross off any Sesame Street character...too much fur and he would have a melt down! My mother-in-law bought a James costume for him at a garage sale, and I thought that would be the ticket. Unfortunately, it was too much for him also. So, in honor of Ratatouille and chef Linguini, Bridger is a little chef for Halloween this year. I have to give a shout out to my mom who made the chef apron by combining 2 different patterns (heck I can barely follow one!!). And the hat just makes the costume...hopefully he'll wear it again tonight! I just love seeing my little man enjoy my favorite holiday.
I hope you guys all have a great Halloween, enjoy the madness for one night!!

The hat rocks. way to think of something ADORABLE and that he would wear. My Hunter has sensory overload, too I think. We need to talk!

I am finally getting Dax to get into halloween with me. He is getting to be a better sport every year. Good luck with Rusty.

Congrats on the baby girl. The costume is priceless it is so cute. Be prepared to have a princess every year from about age 3-10 for Halloween. They sure love being royal.
