EH's First Halloween

EH's first Halloween ended up being mostly anticlimactic.  We dressed him up, got him in his car seat, all ready to go.  And then we stepped outside and noticed it was raining.  It was just a light rain - a drizzle really - but considering that we were just going to walk around with him and watch the other kids trick or treat, it didn't make a lot of sense to do that in the rain.  Plus, I'm pretty sure that EH has his first cold, as he's been coughing and sneezing and snorting up a storm during the last 24 hours or so, and cold weather weather probably wouldn't help that.

Most new babies his age are usually dressed as pumpkins.  Pumpkins are easy, bright, festive costumes that work well for the holiday.  And considering that newborns can move around about as much as a pumpkin can, it makes a lot of sense.

We decided to go a different route - the football.  I'm the quarterback. Pretty cute, right?

So I feel bad that we got him all dressed up and then just sat around at home, but he didn't seem to mind, and he was a good sport about the whole thing. (HA!)

Hope everyone had a happy Halloween!
