Halloween 2015

I’ve never been into Halloween. Like ever. I’m still not a huge fan. However, this year [by the persistent encouragement of a friend- thanks Wanda] we went all out……& laughed all day. We had so much fun.

And a funny little story regarding Ezra’s consume…..

Not sure where or how he heard about a Jack-O-Lantern, but he had been talking about it since September. He wanted to be a “Jack-O-Lantern for Halloween.” 

I’ll be honest….I was convinced he’d forget about it…..you know, so I could dress him up as what I wanted to.

Last week, my friend urged me to dress Ezra up as the Jack-O-Lantern.

“Just let him be a Jack-O-Lantern. He’ll love it.” said Wanda.

And so I did.

The only one I could find was a size 1-2, rather than the size 3-4 he should wear. I bought it anyway.

Ezra LOVED his costume. And you know what? I did too.

It’s not even about the costume, but the joy on his face….all day [he was experiencing a sugar overdose in this photo. HA!] As hard as it is sometimes to let our kids make their own decisions….it’s a good thing. I love this little Jack-O-Lantern and my idea would NOT have topped this. 

These are the days….& the best of memories.
