Last Monday we had a gorgeous day to carve pumpkins. Too bad the adult's pumpkin had already rotted on the inside before we even started! Oh well. Stupid $5 Sam's Club XL pumpkin. And then before we knew it, it was Halloween! Rhett has wanted to be a saber tooth tiger for months, and once I saw this, I thought I could do it. So I did. The shirt is a bit tight, but that's okay. The whole thing is made out fleece (except for the white sherpa), so he was plenty warm. And bless Ollie because I hit the homemade-costume jackpot with him: he wanted to be a green ghost. Done. We trunk-or-treated on Thursday night and then went around the neighborhood Friday night. I should mention that Friday was a no-school day for Rhett. We watched some Halloween shows, went to a playgroup potluck, did some quiet time, played potato stamps, and got ready for trick-or-treating. It was a pretty good day.

And yes, maybe Chuck and I got into the spirit as well. And no, we're not Velma and Shaggy, rather Daria and Trent. Check out "Daria" on Amazon. You won't be disappointed. Promise.


  1. Ha! The Velma and Shaggy reference is hilarious. I will have to check out Daria. It's on my [long] to-do list! And the boys look SO good! What an awesome Halloween.

  2. sounds really great! and looks really great, too! that saber-tooth is about the coolest costume i've seen. what a good mom that rhett has! and love how you accommodated ollie, too. :) whoever you guys are, you looks pretty awesome.

  3. Oh this is fantastic!!! You did an amazing job on your son's saber tooth tiger costume!! I'm sure he was ferocious! :)
