Grey...The Ferocious Fire-Breathin Dragon

It's been a while since I've been this excited for Halloween. Yeah I had some really great Trick or treat experiences growing up, but it's a whole new ballgame when you've got your own tiny trick-or-treatster on your hand. It all starts with the costume and trust me Leigh and i had to make some hard decisions when it came to Grey's final costume. Do we drop like 50-60 bucks on an elephant costume or hold out and see what else is out there? Luckily we stood our ground and Leigh happened across the Fire Breathin Dragon costume at Old Navy for a fraction of the price and a ton better than any elephant costume out there!! I've heard horror stories of kids throwin fits and freaking out when the get into their costumes (I was one of them), and was wondering how'd grey react to wearing his oversized dragon costume. Turns out he loved it!!! and if it was up to him, he'd still be wearing it :)

So here's how the big day went down.

first, it was time to get into the costume.

"Ok mom and dad, I'm ready to go!"

Quick picture with mommy, shows off my whole costume pretty well.

Outside for a family picture.

and another one.

Finally, my first trick or treat spot!

Scary family.

"wait, I thought I was the only Ferocious Fire Breathin Dragon out there! Nope, his buddy Carson was also a Ferocious Dragon :)"

So yeah, We all had a really fun day going around showin off the G-man in his costume. He certainly didn't shy way from the attention...or the candy :)

Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!

Oh man! I love the pics. My favorite is of him sitting alone on that stoop. Sooo cute! I also love the family pic all in costume. I can imagine him thinking, "What the hell is going on here?"!

Okay, like I said before, I am way behind. I love the pic of the teeny little dragon in front of the great big door. Classic!!
