Superman and a Butterfly




We had a fun Halloween. Allen had the entire day off, which was fabulous for all of the errands I had to run...thanks babe! We went to a neighborhood party and then we each took Everett around to a few houses. His favorite candy was a marshmallow pumpkin, much to the disappointment of Allen...who can't imagine a kid not choosing something chocolate!

Camille was a cute little butterfly...thanks to Aunt Kate for the wings! :)



Everett told us about 3 months ago that he wanted to be a robot for Halloween...that is until he uncovered some of his cousin Oliver's old Superman pajamas from a stash of clothes I had. Then he wavered between a robot and Superman for awhile. Allen and I really wanted him to go as a robot because we thought it would be more creative. Plus, his Superman pajamas were missing the cape.

Alas, after a trip to Home Depot to buy the robot making essentials, he no longer wanted to be a robot. Instead of insisting that he be a robot, we settled for Superman. I went out the next day and bought material to make a cape. Allen and I put one together that night...which was no small feat since we don't have a sewing machine. All in all, I'm glad he was Superman. Half the time I had a hard time just getting him to wear his cape...it would have been impossible to try to get him to wear a whole robot costume.



Apparently Superman was popular this year. Here is Everett with two other Superfriends from our neighborhood.
