Halloween 2008

It seems like we celebrated Halloween this year all month long! It was just too much fun! We started off with meeting some friends at the Pumpkin Patch for cute pictures and pumpkin picking! Thanks to the Menzie's we were able to get pictures, as my camera was broken. Here are some of Rylan and their daughter Mattie.









We also took Rylan to Boo @ the Zoo this year. I made him this awesome Boots costume, from Dora the Explorer, and he wouldn't wear it! It took me days. I had really wanted to show off all my hard work at the zoo and was a little disappointed. We ended up just putting him in some shorts and a skull t-shirt. We all had a lot of fun at the zoo and got lots of candy! Rylan caught on to the "trick or treat" thing VERY quickly. :)







Since Rylan wanted nothing to do with his "Boots" costume, I ended up making him a simple cape and belt. They were adorned with the super man symbol and the letter "R." He of course loved his "Super RyRy"costume! Such a boy! He was able to wear his cape to the trunk or treat at our church. We actually crashed the Melbourne Trunk or Treat and then went to the Palm Bay Trunk or Treat the next week! It was a lot of fun and Rylan loved going car to car holding his bucket up for candy. I think he was amazed by the whole thing. It is so exciting having little ones to share the holidays with. To watch their little faces light up and the amazement in their eyes. I loved teaching Rylan about Halloween as it approached. We covered our walls with Halloween arts and crafts. It will be exciting to pull out our "art" each year and I am sure one day we will get a good laugh from them!

Rylan is so adorable! Too bad we're 2000 miles away and can't ever see you guys. Halloween this year was not quite as exciting for us, maybe next year with the little one.

It sounds like you all had a lot of fun and are also very crafty! Rylan is just too cute. Just think, you will have another little one next Halloween to add to the PARTY CRASHING you guys did. :)

Rylan is super cute! Sorry about the boots costume, I am sure it was amazing! He is getting so big!

It actually worked out since Rylan is still enjoying his cape! I have him on video running through the house w/ it on yelling, "Super RyRy!" I guess Boots' awesomeness really can't compare to those precious Super RyRy moments. :) Oh, and Wal-mart had their halloween costumes on sale for $2 so I bought a few things for the baby for next year! HeeHee. :)
