He is a tiger and a pretty darn cute tiger if you ask me! The only problem??? He wants nothing to do with being a tiger. At first when the outfit is put on him he tries his best to get it off, then when you try to put the hood on with the ears he screams and shakes his head. Luckily, he soon forgets about the outfit itself and at least keeps that on. We are also able to draw his nose and whiskers on so all in all he is a pieced together tiger.
We've decided that last year was a snap because he was about 7 months old and we could have dressed him in a potato sack and he wouldn't have cared. Last year he was a lion and wore the same exact costume that I wore as a baby.
This year he is still too young to understand what Halloween is all about but old enough to know he doesn't want to wear a silly costume. I'm bummed because his Nana did such a good job making it and it was an homage to a similar costume that Hubs wore when he was C's age. Oh well. We'll get 'em next year!
Costume came off, no tiger ears in sight!
Saturday was pumpkin carving day and Little C did enjoy that! He basically banged on the pumpkin with the carving tools and would help Dad out when he could.
"Watcha doin' dad?"
My men hard at work
"Here dad, lemme help you!"
After carving I made a fun treat for my hard working fellas...
White chocolate covered frozen "boo-nanas"
This is what I was aiming for...
Ha! Close, but not quite. (click here to get the recipe)
At least Little C didn't mind his mama's failed attempt at being the next Martha Stewart
The highlight of the weekend was definitely having C spend time with all of his grandparents. He lights up when they are around and it is great to see how he has unique relationships with each of them. My parents stopped by on Friday night, His Nana came over on Sunday morning and we stopped by his final set of grandparents affectionately called, Scotty and Mimi, on Sunday afternoon.
How lucky is our son to be surrounded by so much love?!? It warms my heart and makes me feel very blessed.
I hope you all had a great weekend! Did you do any Halloween activities or dress up yourselves? What is your little one(s) dressing up as?
