Choo Choo!

It was somewhat of a challenge deciding what Jonathan was going to be for Halloween this year. Originally I thought about attempting to make a Lightning McQueen costume, but that idea was axed pretty early on. I have no real skills when it comes to things like that. Then, we talked about mom making him a Peter Pan costume, but we had issues finding inexpensive materials that looked decent. So, while perusing the shelves at K-Mart we came across this adorable Thomas the Train costume. Jonathan is a big fan of Thomas & his friends, so it worked out perfectly. We didn't do trick-or-treating this year as our church had a festival of sorts. I have to admit I was a bit disappointed in it. Besides being rather disorganized, there just wasn't a whole lot for kids his age. We'll see what happens next year, but we may just stick with trick-or-treating. Speaking of trick-or-treating... isn't there some sort of unspoken rule that if your porch light is off that means you don't have candy? Chris unfortunately had to do some work at home that evening while we were gone & he said that the doorbell kept ringing. We had turned off the porch light & all the other lights in the house, so there was no reason for people to even think anyone was home. (Chris was back in the bedroom working.) Anyhoo, I just thought it was kind of weird.


I had kind of forgotten about it, but November is National Blog Posting Month (aka NaBloPoMo). Basically it's just a "challenge" to post every single day for an entire month. I missed yesterday, but I'm going to try and keep up with it again this year. I certainly won't promise that every day will be something interesting... but I'll do my best! Since I missed yesterday I'll post twice today... lucky you! Stay tuned!

Cute costume! And yes, if the porch light is out they are supposed to move on. Of course people don't cotton much to etiquette these days.

I really like your blog headers but this one is exceptionally cute. Very different.
