Halloween 2013

Better late than never.  Amiright!?

About a month before Halloween I started talking to Redmond about it, telling him he could dress up as anything he wanted.  I was expecting the typical Superhero, Police Officer, Cowboy, etc.  imagine my surprise when Redmond declared:

"I want to be a tie, mama!"
You read that right.  A tie.  Like, a necktie.  That men wear around their neck.  I'm not going to lie, I tried to sway him to change to something different (ie: easier), but no luck.  So, after a trip to Goodwill we had our Tie costume.  It actually turned out pretty good!  Ashlyn was a little ballerina. How cute is she in that tutu!?


There were three different Halloween events we participated in this year.  The first was Boo Zoo at Binder Park Zoo.  We go to this zoo a lot so Redmond was really excited to go.  Unfortunately, all of the things he looks forward to doing at the zoo (feeding the goats and giraffes mainly) were closed. But, it was fun nonetheless.  He got some candy, played some games and looked adorable!


There was also a little party at the library.  I love seeing all of the little kids in their costumes!

Then, the main event - trick-or-treating!  The weather was cold and rainy so we left Ashlyn with Jason's parents and only went to a few houses.  We went around my in-laws neighborhood so Redmond knew quite a few of the people handing out candy.  He had no problem walking into their houses and helping himself to their candy bowls.  It was so funny!

I already can't wait for next year!!
