halloween festivities

Elijah kept looking in the mirror and saying, "I look awesome!!" 
finishing the night off with some Butterbeer :)

It felt like our Halloween celebrations went on and on... 
but it was worth it for a certain little boy. 

The week before we got to go trick-or-treating at Adam's school and play some games. 
Then Elijah got to dress up for Kid's Club at the mall where he got to see creepy crawlies {much to my dissatisfaction} and eat all the frosting off cupcakes. 
And then on actual Halloween day he had a preschool party plus our own trick-or-treating that night. 

Party animals! 

Elijah loved going as Woody and we even watched Toy Story 2 every day for a week {literally!} to do some character research.
Of course Elijah looooooooooooved all the candy he got
[and he got a TON of chocolate, which we are strongly regulating]
but he also absolutely loved seeing all the kids and their different costumes.

All night he would say,
"Mom, look at that ghost! Look she's Minnie Mouse! Oh that's a robot!!"
Like seriously all night.
It was actually surprising that he wouldn't run to the next house because he was too fascinated by all the costumes. But then once he snapped back into candy mode he would yell,

So now we're working on being more grateful and not greedy.

Also? My unibrow.

Yeah, good holiday. :)
