Sweet as Candy

5 Nov

I promised Halloween pictures and I do aim to please. Halloween here was rainy and cold, so Lola didn’t get to go trick or treating with her brothers. That didn’t stop us from getting some great pictures though!

Little Lola Moo

Lola was a baby cow for Halloween, something that certainly thrilled Auntie Beckie, who loves cows as much as Mommy and Auntie Da love pigs. We had a hard time getting a costume for her for several reasons. First of all, Halloween in Newfoundland is cold. It usually snows here on Halloween night. All the little princess dresses and tutus were severely lacking in warmth. The other reason we had issues was because Lola is still so darned tiny! Everything we found was way too big for her.

The cow costume isn’t actually a costume so it serves a dual purpose. It’s a snowsuit, so it will do for the winter, but it had cow spots and cute little ears so it could be her costume. As it turns out the snowsuit part of it was a moot point since she didn’t wear it outside for Halloween, but it will still serve the purpose for the winter. The snowsuit is newborn size and it’s still too big for our little 3.5 month old angel. Go figure.

Iron Hayden

Hayden chose to be Ironman. He loves the Ironman movie and when he said that he wanted to be Ironman, it was an easy one for us. The costume was readily available thanks to the recent release of the second movie, and it was adorable on him! As you can see, Hayden really got into character.

Tony Stark never looked so good

He was thrilled to get to wear his costume twice; once for his school party on the 29th and once on Halloween night.

On the way to his party

When Hayden decided to be Ironman, Silas got his heart set on being War Machine. His reasoning? War Machine is Ironman’s best friend and since he and Hayden are best friends, logically he needed to be War Machine. Isn’t that precious? They break my heart sometimes with how sweet they are.

Friends for life.

And as for my project, today’s assignment didn’t warrant a post of it’s own so I decided to do it as an afterthought on this post. I’m supposed to share someone who I could see myself marrying or being with in the future. Well that would be this man right here.

Who else?
