Toby the giraffe

Happy Halloween!!!! Toby was excited to be a giraffe, but when the costume arrived, he thought it was "a little bit scary." We had his old baseball costume from last year ready to go, but this morning he woke up and was super giraffe-ready. We took these shots this morning on the way to school (excuse the spilled juice box on his belly:)
(Doing a giraffe dance, naturally:)

And this evening, we're going trick-or-treating around the 27 floors of our building and are hoping to meet some nice neighbors!

Have a wonderful Halloween!! xoxo

How nice! I live in Romania and we don't have Halloween traditionally, although we started celebrating it in the past years. We traditionally go door to door on Christams Eve singing carols , so it's kind of similar . I like it a lot and if you want to see how we do it in Romania see this:

quinndien said...

He looks so happy! Just what Halloween is supposed to be about. My mom made one of my favorite Halloween costumes when I was a kid. I wanted to be a mouse, so my mom threw together a giant gray sweatshirt, a rope for a tail, construction paper ears, and a little eyeliner to make a black nose. Did I mention she was a single mom and we were poor? Hooray for moms!

I can't wait to have a little one that I can try to coax into costumes, and hope that (s)he enjoys being in it as much, and poses as well as your little guy, vs wiggling out of it. :D

For now, I had to make do by posing with a plant as my Halloween 'accessory' until that day comes... (working on it, though!)

Happy Halloween!

How sweet he is. And how adorable that costume is. The combination is almost too much!

My little one went as a skellington. It was his first participatory Halloween, so I didn't want to overwhelm him. You can see the result of his adventure here: http://momnari.blogspot.com/2013/10/trick-or-treat.html

Oh - I loved these photos - just when I think he cannot get any cuter, you post something like this (his dance face killed me!)

Colleen Moran said...

He is so cute! Hope you meet some nice new neighbors!

Amanda said...

So cute!!! Did you choose the giraffe costume or did Toby? How's trick or treating in an apartment building? I'm from a tiny town in Iowa and trick or treating was the best. As kids we'd go around in packs and stop by all of the houses in town.
