Halloween is one of my absolute favorite holidays. I love the decorations and the kids in the neighborhood trick or treating. We're pretty conservative on candy and sugar for Gabe but this is the one day I just don't care. He ate way too much candy and had a blast.
It took us awhile to convince him to actually put on the costume for it. He didn't want to wear pants (men!) But when we did get him into it he was Adorable!
This costume was made by my Grandma about 20 some years ago for one of my cousins for Halloween and I'm thrilled it was saved and passed down. Everyone in town thought Gabe made a great little skunk, even after the head piece got "too scratchy!" and had to be taken off. He filled TWO buckets with candy and thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. He's already asking when we can do it again.
Now it's on to Christmas, where my poor kid gets shafted because his birthday is December 23. I'm voting to skip the whole thing and have Halloween again. Christmas just stresses me out anyhow, lol. He's already asking for a truck cake!
