An Illinois Halloween

JJ's Costume - a UPS man!

We just got back from a GREAT weekend at home. Ever since I got pregnant with JJ I have been dying to take him home to Trick-or-Treat. We finally got to experience a perfect Halloween weekend in IL this year. It was absolutely perfect for many we go....

Friday my parents had a Weenie Roast.
The CARDINALS won the World Series.
All in all, great Friday!
(The pumpkin my sister carved. Go Cards!)

Saturday we went to the St. Louis Zoo. JJ loved it!

All weekend long JJ spent a ton of time outside.
(Wearing the Owl Hat that I crocheted for him. I've been selling these at craft shows.)

Monday night we went Trick-or-Treating. JJ did really well. He liked it, said "Please" and "Thank you" at every house and everyone really loved his costume. We didn't spend a whole lot of time out, JJ woke up that morning with a cold and runny nose that quickly developed into a full blown waterfall. Tuesday morning we headed back to W.V. The visit just flew by and fun was had by all. Back again at Christmas and my parents are coming out to visit at the end of November. 2011 - why have you gone so quickly?!?!

No ma'am - ordered that sucker from Amazon. But I did hem the pants! And my mother put tucks in it. My little guy is only in the 20th percentile for height, so that 2T-4T costume needed a little altering. By the time it was all said and done, we felt like we made it!! haha!
