The boys had a busy Halloween week! They had a lot of fun, possibly too much.
Our church's Trunk or Treat was on Sunday. They donned their costumes, and we brought all of the Halloween decorations we had to decorate our trunk. Little Elvis was adamant that we do that. He would help. He and Baby Plum did draw on some of the pumpkins in our pumpkin and witch hat garland, but that was all he did. I kind of knew that would happen. They still had fun.
Baby Plum wore a Cookie Monster t-shirt under his costume. (They had bouncies and I wanted him to bounce without a tail.) So, he and our little Cookie Monster posed in front of the Cookie Monster car.
Zazu the bird dancing to an impromptu version of "Free Bird."
A better profile shot. The eyebrows make it, I think. In the movie, Zazu's eyebrows are very expressive. He usually looked a lot angrier than I made this one.
Here's the tail. He wore his Mickey Mouse spats from last year as his bird talons.
Super America got his face painted with an S and an A for Super America. We entered all three in a local costume contest, and Little Elvis won 2nd place! Lots of people helped him win, and we really appreciate all your votes!
I think it looks like Baby Plum is pecking his candy in this picture.
This is what happens when you give Cheese Puff one of those mini 3 Musketeers. I don't believe any of it made it into his little body.
This was Red Ribbon Week at Little Elvis' school. He wore all sorts of different outfits to school this week. On Halloween Day he was supposed to wear cowboy gear for a Barn Dance. Since Little Elvis got to wear a hat, Baby Plum had to wear one, too. I couldn't get him in the picture, but Cheese Puff was wearing a construction hat.
He took it off for his close-up.
Baby Plum picked up a guitar to complete his western ensemble.
Little Elvis dancing during his Barn Dance. He fussed about it all week, but had a blast. I took Baby Plum and Cheese Puff to a costume event before the Barn Dance, so Zazu and Cookie Monster went to the Barn Dance. We all got to get on the floor and dance the last two dances. It was fun.
A week of fun was a little too much for Baby Plum. He told me that 3 of his classmates were out sick on Friday. That afternoon he ran a fever and said his eyes itched. He couldn't finish his lunch. Instead, he fell asleep standing up.
Cheese Puff showing me that Baby Plum was asleep. This evening, Baby Plum's eyes got goopy. He's got a really raw throat, but no strep, and pink eye. Cheese Puff gnawed on one of those crusts and then stuck it in my mouth yesterday. I've decided to quarantine us for the rest of the weekend.
