This is the first year that Noah has been semi-aware of Halloween. His school had a parade of costumes so we had to find him something to be for Halloween. I went the week-of to find something and the Target costumes were pretty picked over by that point. My friend (who was visiting from out-of-town) and I found an Elmo costume because Noah is OBSESSED with Elmo right now. However, once we got the costume home and tried it on, we found Noah didn't really fit in the costume (it was skin tight - picture Britney Spears' red leather outfit below) and he didn't want to put on the head- he just wanted to hug the head (since it looked like elmo).
This actually turned out to be a really good costume since he knows "what a lion says". This is him roaring. Cute, right?
A friend sent David this monster sleeper in a Halloween-themed care package so David was a monster for half the day (being a monster is wonderfully out of character for him):
Since David is totally unaware of Halloween I wasn't planning on spending money on a costume. My friend that was in town insisted that he needed one and bought him this pumpkin costume. I have to admit, it too is pretty stinkin' cute:
