Halloween 2017

"The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws, till Max said, "BE STILL!"

Happy Halloween from the King of all Wild Things! This is one of Ollie's favorite books, so we thought it appropriate that he be Max for Halloween. Originally the plan was to order the costume online, but we had no luck in finding one his size, so that meant I got to make it. Thanks to Pinterest, I was able to find instructions on how to make the costume. In no way am I a seamstress, so I needed something simple and easy. It took some bribery of treats (candy) to get him to put it on, and once it was on, there was no taking it off. We knew that if we took it off, there would be no way he would let us put it back on. 

Tim's work was having a Halloween party, and so with the bribery of candy we were able to get Oliver changed into his costume. I also made Tim a matching wild thing costume. We kept telling Oliver that if he wanted to get candy he had to wear his costume. He understood that, but had to be constantly reminded that the costume meant candy. 

For the last couple of days I had been teaching Ollie how to say "trick or "treat." My heart melted each time he would say it. We took him around our neighborhood to the few houses that were giving out candy, and it was the cutest things having him go up to the doors, knock and say "trick or treat," then try to go into the house.

Halloween changes when you have kids. It becomes more fun, because you get to be apart of their excitement. I am really excited for next Halloween, and hopefully will have costumes planned out for all three of us.

His little "trick or treat" melts my heart every single time!

Hogle Zoo

Friday we went to the zoo. Neither Tim nor I worked that day, and we've been wanting to take Oliver again, so to the zoo we went. This is my first video, so don't judge it too harshly. I don't have the video talent that Tim does, but I had fun putting it together and hopefully is something that I can keep doing. I love taking pictures, but this is something new and a different way to document our adventures. So enjoy.
