Trick or Treat 2010

I wasn't going to buy Aiden a new costume this year; he'd gotten a pretty cute cowboy outfit that was in great shape from a friend. But when I was returning Similac to Babies R Us a few weeks back (during the recall), I spotted a rack full of costumes at 30% off, and decided that the pirate outfit was just too darned cute. After seeing Aiden wear it for his second trick-or-treat last night, I'm so glad I ended up buying it! The hat alone--and what it does for his ears--is well worth the money!

As you can see from Aiden's layered look (including winter gloves), it was a bit chilly last night for trick-or-treat. No worries, though; there was no way that kid was going to miss getting his fill of candy! I'm still a bit sore to be doing that much walking, so Mike braved the elements to take him door-to-door. I love that the two of them got to spend some one-on-one time together, however short it was. Aiden is all smiles in these photos, but we had one grumpy boy by the time we got home last night (too much candy?), and then he got up twice last night--totally out of character for my good sleeper. I'm hoping he wasn't too much trouble at daycare today.

As for Nolan, his extremely small stature at this stage in his life made finding a properly-fitting costume for him pretty much impossible, so we opted instead for the generic festive look. That silly pumpkin hat only cost me a $1, so I was able to splurge a bit more on the onesie. I'm also making him wear it again on Sunday just to say I got a bit more use out of it, then I'll be putting it in his special keepsakes box in remembrance of his first holiday. I find myself feeling like this is going too fast already...
