Halloween - Round 2

Yesterday, we dressed William up for his 2nd Halloween and had all intentions of taking him to Grandpa and Grandma's neighborhood for some Trick-Or-Treating. (Not that he knows how to say "Trick or Treat" or knows anything about candy, but Mama and Daddy love Halloween candy and we're not ashamed to exploit our child to get some. ha!)

But, we woke up on Halloween morning to a rainstorm that didn't let up all. day. long. By the time we got to Grandpa and Grandma's, the wind had picked up and most of the towns had postponed Halloween until tonight (Friday). That didn't stop us from having a little fun with him on Halloween though!

You may remember last year's costume - a sweet little chubby horsey 

And this year our little horsey graduated to a bona fide cowboy with cowboy boots and all! At one point we managed to get a cowboy hat on him (for like .5 seconds), but we don't have any good pictures of that. 

In true William fashion, he was very serious about his costume and not really sure why he was wearing it and why people were doting, but maybe by next year he'll be more into it.

He was definitely into the little rainy day activity I planned with him earlier in the day - pumpkin painting. I'm not really sure what came over me, but I just decided "let's make a mess!" 

To which William replied: "Hey, I've never tasted paint before! This sounds like fun!" ;)

With some guidance, he did eventually realize that the paint was to be used on the pumpkin and then he had a grand time. Here is his first masterpiece...personally, I think he chose really great colors. And just look at those brushstrokes fingerstrokes! ;)

I hope your little ones had/will have a fun Halloween! I'm off to dig into the M&M's! :)


  1. Awwwww….. so fun! I love William's costume and his pumpkin is adorable. We did painting with Henry, too, and he was also unsure until he got going. Thank goodness for nontoxic paint.

  2. He is such a handsome little cowboy. I love his costume so much.

    And his pumpkin looks great! We painted with Henry, too, and I"m just happy it's nontoxic paint because you know it went right in his mouth.
