This Halloween was a challange in the costume department because it is our first year in Utah and the possiblity of snow. Not to mention the fact that Carson is, well...Carson! Meaning that he has his very own ideas about EVERYTHING!! Brandon, on the other hand, decided about a month ago that he wanted to be a Vampire, not a 'cute' vampire a 'scary' vampire 'with blood and everything'!

But with Carson is was a much bigger deal. We went to EVERYWHERE (Wal-Mart, Target, The Halloween Suoerstore, etc) to find a costume, but there was nothing there that was what he wanted, we showed him the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle' costume-NO, then it was a 'Dragon' one-NO, then the 'Transformer' (I thought he would want this one for sure!) but...NO! Finally as we were about to give up he CHOSE (YAY!!!!).....Drum roll please......

You might call this costume a 'Jack-O-Lantern'. But as I mentioned before, Carson has is OWN ideas, so he said he was a 'happy pumpkin' and he LOVED his costume!!! He wanted to sleep in it and as soon as he got up the day after Halloween he was sitting at the kitchen table eating breakfast in his 'happy pumpkin suite' and underware. I know I should have a picture of it, but I don't.

My 'scary' Vampire, Brandon and my 'Happy Pumpkin' Carson! We had such a great Halloween and can't wait till next year. They are already talking about what they want to be.
