Goodbye October, hello November! It is a bittersweet time, as Halloween is over and we make our way toward Thanksgiving and Christmas. This Halloween was a little different from any other we have ever had before...because, we're kind of in Flordia.
We are in Flordia for our friends/family wedding, taking place today! From the texts, calls, and Facebook pictures back at home...it is clearly becoming a winter wonderland for the first time this season. I am crossing my fingers that the snow doesn't go anywhere, so we can enjoy it when we get home late tomorrow night!;)
Meanwhile, it's pretty chilly here in Flordia too! I was very concerned that Cam might have a heat stroke in his fuzzy wild thing costume (and the Mr. and I too in our sweatshirts!) Speaking of our sweatshirts, can I just say how hard it was to come up with something to match Cam's costume this year? Geez! I have studied on this since I decided Cam would be Max, and it has just about drove me crazy! A couple of weeks ago, I had this vision of sweatshirts with monster heads from the story.
JUST FYI...Things I would do better next time? I would definitely make sure the Mr's hoodie was big enough, the teeth and face are aligned, and that the red wild things hair was an equal length...
And trick or treating? Much to my excitement, the bride and groom happened to live in an awesome neighborhood for trick or treating! So after the rehearsal dinner, we headed out. Cam was a pro by the second door. Once he realized that people were walking out with a big bowl of things to eat, he would walk right up to the door (silent I might add) and stick his Max claws into their bowl for something else to add to drop in his pumpkin bucket. Then turn around, reach up to be carried, and we would march the wild rumpus to the next door in the neighborhood:) Wouldn't you know after our last trick or treat, he began to show off the perfect Max roar? In true toddler fashion. Good grief. I could eat him up, I love him so!
