tricks for treats

oh halloween. i usually don't get super amped about halloween. but this year, we knew that we'd prolly have a little man around the house that would want to get in on the halloween action. so we started planning his costume a month or so ago. we decided on Max from where the wild things are. (i know, so trendy and hip of us) so emily starting making the hood and horns awhile ago. but then Will came a couple weeks earlier and we sorta forgot about halloween again. then we figured we wouldn't be going out, so really we'd just be finishing his costume to take some pictures and tell him many years from now that we had fun celebrating his first halloween.

I went back to work on thursday this week after a few days of paternity leave and found out that the residents were having a halloween party. emily and i figured we'd go. but then we needed to finish the costume and find costumes for ourselves...

long story short. we made Will a scepter, added a crown to his hood, and decided to be each other for halloween. this is how it all went down.

started the day with a matinee of where the wild things are. we even dressed Will in his Max costume for the occasion.



here's cute Will as cute Max, King of the Wild Things.


here's emily as me.



here's me as emily (pre-baby, of course. i did my own make-up and shaved my own legs)




here's the three of us, living it up on Will's first halloween... i think he liked it. maybe, i'll finally start loving halloween again too.

Im sure glad you're comfortable in your own genders.Will looks like he is ready to start his own ruckus. Love, Dad

Very ingenious costumes. Peter is ALMOST as cute as Emily when she was pregnant.
Love Will's costume, but he is much too sweet to "...make mischief of one kind and another..."
I hope he doesn't "roar his terrible roar when he goes to bed tonight." I know he is the new "King" of your house though.

You guys are so funny. 1st off, I love the Max. Very cute and I'm glad you finished off his costume. 2nd, Peter, you look pretty good as a pregnant lady. "Scaringly" good. Sounds like a fun halloween. Halloween is definitely more fun with kids I think.
