Happy Halloween Friends!! It's hard to believe another year has rolled on by -- last year I actually missed Halloween after been stranded in Austin due to their airport being flooded!! But this year we're home and we took full advantage of a weekend together to celebrate fall. On Friday we took Jonathan to our church's Fall Festival -- a night of games, food and of course costumes and candy. On Saturday we hung out with cousins, played in the leaves and visited some farm animals. Then on Sunday I helped Jonathan carve two pumpkins -- he was beyond thrilled to have his very own jack-o-lantern!!
Each year for the past three Halloweens my Mom and Dad have made Jonathan's costume. Growing up each year my Mom would hand sew my own Halloween costumes and they were incredible!! It's been a fun tradition to pass along to Jonathan -- but this year he wanted to be a fireman and well, we already had everything needed. So you guessed it, this year Jonathan was a Fire Chief for Halloween, complete with a water pump back and megaphone!!
In celebration of Halloween, candy and all things FUN, I thought I'd share Jonathan's Halloween costumes from the past three years -- this will be his fourth Halloween!! How can that be?!! Enjoy!!
In 2013 Jonathan was a cuddly bear!! My Mom created this adorable get up!!
In 2014 my Mom was a selfie (HA!!) and Jonathan was an airplane pilot, with GE engines of course!! Check out the plane my parents made out of cardboard and duck tape!!
In 2015 Jonathan was Tow Mater from Cars, he was and still is obsessed with the movie!! Again my parents made this costume out of cardboard, duck tape and empty Pringle containers!!
And in 2016 - our little Fire Chief!! This was an absolute miracle that I got him to smile -- he just kept running everywhere trying to put out fires!
