ahoy baby

ambrose's first halloween was very cute and fun despite his mama having a nasty cold and it raining a whole bunch. here are some photos:
we decided to go ahead and have him wear the jacket since it was so windy and rainy outside. it was a bit large but he didnt seem to mind and i thought it really made the outfit in a kind of count dracula/pirate way. why not get the costume in a smaller size you ask? good question. the smaller jacket fit pretty good, but the pants were too small to accommodate the rather plump pirate's booty (making him more and more like his mama everyday! haha). his daddy bought him this little mummy flashlight to carry around and he was so in love with it the whole time.



we just walked around to various ward member's homes to show him off and let him see all the neighborhood kids running around in their costumes. he really loved all the excitement. when we came in from the rain his grandma presented him with one of her famous candymen that she hands out and he was quite delighted!



then we took him in for some final photos in the pirate costume and he let us know he was done by tearing that big old hat off! it was a fun night and even more fun once he went to bed and mom and dad got to stay up, watch part of corpse bride, and eat the candy our child had acquired for us. thanks pirate baby! hope everyone had a happy and safe halloween!

Both Dan & I have always thought no one can be a cuter pirate than good ol Johhny Depp (mmmmm). Ambrose my child, you have proved me wrong. Looks like Dan will soon develop a man crush on you. Beware Matey.

PS-Cutest candy man! Linda I'm so sure!

Just one more reason to have kids, you get to steal their Halloween candy when they go to sleep. Can't wait!

That is one cute pirate!!

I love his fascination with the flashlight. Good call, daddy! And the candy man... I have never seen one of those before - so cute.

I am also very impressed with the candy man! Ambrose is such a cute little pirate. You should make him wear that outfit everytime you go out. I also agree with eating the kids candy when they go to bed. I couldn't have picked a more perfect time to move in with Adam and Brittany.

Hands down, the best pirate EVER!

What a handsome boy!!! There are many more holidays to come where you get to steal your kids candy! it is awesome!

Melissa said...

Cute little pirate! We also enjoyed the fact that we got to eat all of the candy Kaiya trick or treated for. I have a feeling we wont be able to get away with that next year.

Where did you get that costume? Its sooo cute! Maybe its just the baby thats making it cute.

we picked it up at old navy. i didnt even know they had costumes there and was just browsing for clothes for when we come at christmas and saw all these awesome costumes. then, to sweeten the deal, they were 25%off so i felt like it was meant to be!

You mean it RAINED on HALLOWEEN in LAIE???!? I actually have no clear memories of trick-or-treating when it wasn't raining! Glad that Ambrose was able to carry on the family tradition. Emily went crazy looking at the pictures. You'd love how cute she says Steffy now, and Ambrose almost sounds like Dumbo. Very cute. Now just get those pics on the REF!!

What a cute pirate! Love the costume. I have quite enjoyed eating all my kids candy this year...too bad he'll actually want his next year!

i feel that my allegiance is so conflicted. see, heath was also a pirate for halloween, but that ambrose looks pretty great as a little pirate. so here i sit, feeling that i need to pick a "favorite pirate" or a "best pirate ever." what should i do, stephanie? what should i do?

Stephanie J. Robertson said...

hi shauna!!!! thanks for commenting on my blog- what a fun surprise!!

becca booster face: always go with family first- heath is pretty dang awesome/cute. ambrose can take the prize in the best non-related by blood pirate category. he still feels the love.

That is the best costume I've ever seen. And Ambrose is one of the cutest babies I've ever seen- so it just fits. Old Navy- who would've thought. It's been 3 days since Halloween and I think I've made my way through any chocolate the kids might have received- it's great to be a parent.

A pirate's got to have his booty, arggh! Glad to know there are other eat-your-child's-candy-parents.
