Deja Vu

Happy Halloween!  We had a bit of a deja vu moment tonight, b/c this picture is of Jake LAST Halloween.  He didn't so much like his skunk costume.  I thought it was possibly because it was too hot for CA - but about 2 hours after this picture was taken, he also started throwing up for about 24 hours, so.....then I just assumed it was because of that.  However, I think Jake just DOESN'T LIKE COSTUMES, because.....

this is Jake I was trying to put on his pirate costume :-)  He was NOT having it at all!  Of course, this year it didn't help that he fell into the kitchen table about 15 minutes prior and got a bloody nose, so he already wasn't feeling up to par.  I think Jake just really prefers being in his t-shirt and diaper - no costume for him.  I had such great expectations of this little pirate running around passing out Halloween candy, but....we couldn't even get the costume all the way on :-)
He did enjoy ONE of the costume accessories (the sword).  It's lots of fun having Aunt Becky here with us - and Jake is thoroughly enjoying himself - and the attention.
I talked Chris into putting on the accessories of the costume that would fit him, so I could at least capture a "pirate picture" :-)   What a good sport!
AND this is Jake laughing at his Daddy pretending to be a pirate.  Jake was just happy to have him home, b/c he has been gone for the better part of the week, so it was nice having him around tonight.  Hope everyone had a safe and FUN Halloween (and don't forget you get an extra hour of sleep tonight)!  Yay! :-)

awww, what a shame, that costume looks adorable :) Guess his little brother will have to sport it one day :)

haha - yes, I'm saving both of the costumes for Cole - and technically they won't even be considered "hand me downs", since neither of them were worn for more than 2 minutes :-) :-)
