Wow, it’s been ages. I think that’s how I started the last 12 posts because I’m such crap at keeping up the blog anymore. I can’t eveWow, it’s been ages. I think that’s how I started the last 12 posts because I’m such crap at keeping up the blog anymore. I can’t even believe that I’ve gone from the girl who used to document what she ate every meal of the day to someone who can’t even remember her WordPress password. Well no more. I’ve gotten so out of the habit of updating the blog that I’m going to commit to posting a blog everyday this month. Yes, even while traveling home to the States for Thanksgiving. Those posts may be set to automatically update while I’m traveling on a loud military plane with an almost toddler and can’t find an hour to type an entry b/c I’m holding earplugs into my baby’s ears, but they’ll be posts nonetheless so you better read them.
Here are a few photos of Tripp’s first Halloween or what we refer to as the Oscars since we changed his outfit every hour. He started out the evening at the Base Children’s Halloween party in his hellishly hot Curious George costume. He looked so cute but wouldn’t smile for anything. I think he was too hot to smile.
Moving on to trick or treating he changed into a shark costume and had everyone hysterical as he crawled around our friend’s lawn with his little limp fins flapping around.
(Horrible photo, it was dark and my camera battery was almost gone so it’s so grainy. But I think you get the picture).
Once we were done torturing the poor guy with ridicously uncomfortable costumes we put his Johnny costume back on. (“Defeat does not exist in this dojo, does it?” “No Sensai!”)
(And yes, that’s my crazy husband dressed as Mr. T, his favorite Halloween costume. Any excuse to shave a mohawk into his hair).
I can’t wait until Tripp can fully appreciate the fun of ringing doorbells and begging for sugary treats. Maybe next year!
