As usual, we had a fabulous halloween! Each year it seems like we try and rack our brains for some fun and unique costume ideas! This year our biggest obstacle was our little 2 year old who does not like anything on his head (Lord help me as we prepare to spend the entire winter in Rhode Island where hats are a must)...so with that being said, we were on a mission to find a "themed" costume for our little family that didn't require any type of headpiece.Here is what we came up with....
THE KING LIVES!!!
We actually went trick or treating in Solomons Island last weekend and since Aiden was the only one dressed up (Daddy and I didn't suit up), and of course wouldn't wear a wig, we feared he may be mistaken for a wizard (or a dancer but who's counting). My poor husband was never far behind Aiden with his little guitar to make sure that there weren't any cases of "mistaken identity"

On Saturday night we, the adults, rounded up a group and relived our youth by dressing up in costumes and pretending we were young and eager enough to close down the bars! Here is our group...
Aiden loved seeing us all dressed up and kept saying "I wanna go, I wanna go"...this is his "PLEEEEAAAASE Mommy can I go" face...
We ended up going to the National Harbor here in the MD/DC area...There was a best part and a worst part of the night...the best part...

The worst part of the night...well maybe it wasn't the worst part but it was definitely interesting...I was the designated driver which meant I had the pleasure of driving home 6 drunk people. I thought a 2 year old's melt down was a test to my patience HA...I will take a melt down anyday! Six adults slurring their words, barking directions, being obnoxious, and creating enough distractions to make us look suspicious to any cop with in a 5 mile radius surely tested my pleasing personality! With that being said...having a designated driver is more important than my fragile nerves...I wanted to be sure that I made it home safely to my baby boy and I felt great the next day!!!
|What a sophisticated bunch!|
For Halloween, we went back and forth on what we wanted to do! Being that my husband is severely addicted to football and the San Diego Chargers (who played on Halloween), we were held hostage to a 10 mile radius of the nearest TV...thank you NFL!!! So, we decided to trick or treat in my hubby's old neighborhood! Aiden loved it...after every house he would say "I wanna go to the next one"
Everyone kept saying that Aiden had the best costume out of the group...although I thought the hubby and I made for an attractive couple of Elvi'...I would have to agree...he was "THE KING"
