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!
