Halloween 2009

Yet another Halloween has come and gone. There were some highs and there were some lows, but fun was had by all.
The highs:
  • Will made one mighty fine-looking cowboy (in spite of my low-budget, lazy costume-making abilities)
  • Will loved candy
  • Will had a blast at the Ward par-tay, baking cookies with friends and trick-or-treating
  • Will also was in hog heaven at our neighborhood fire department party and parade: fire trucks galore
  • Josh and I loved diving right into Will's Halloween bag, helping ourselves to our favorite candy

The lows:

  • Will wanted no part of his costume--not the hat, not the vest, not the bandanna. He did, however, love the pony (he called it a "cow" since he was a cowboy) and the red boots. Oh, the red boots.
  • Will loved the candy--so much so that at the ward party he stole candy out of other children's bags, wouldn't play any games (only asked for more candy) and while trick-or-treating, insisted on eating the candy he received right then and there or else a tantrum would ensue (hence, not much trick-or-treating was accomplished).
  • Will is still hopped up from his "sugar high"
  • Josh and I ate way too much candy.

Good-bye Halloween, 'til we meet next year. Enjoy the photos that document this fine, sugar-filled holiday.

A fire boat, oh my!
Will insisted on the pony wearing the cowboy hat (and insisted that he did not).

This is his new "cheese" smile. He loves to say "cheese" when we take photos.

Jessy, Will looks ADORABLE!! I love the red boots more every time I see a picture of them on that cute boy.

What a handsome cowboy! It just makes me smile how much he loves those red boots. We are definitely on a sugar high here too...oh the joys of halloween.

All that matters is that he wore the whole get-up for at least a few pictures. Who cares after that?! He is so, so cute, Jessy. And he's looking so grown-up. I love, love parted hair on little boys.

What a cutie! Now I see why my parents wouldn't let us eat all our candy in one night!!! Little people and sugar don't mix well.

that is one cute cowboy!

He's the cutest cowboy I ever did see! And I'm glad you and Josh are reaping the rewards of your child's hard-earned work. Keep it up until he catches on!
