Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!  We aren't really doing much for Halloween this year.  You see, neither Steve and I are big halloween people.  It's just not something either of us get very excited about.  I wasn't even sure if I was going to do a costume for Riggs this year, but then I saw a baby bat costume at the store.  And I knew Riggs would look so cute in it, so I decided to go ahead and get it for him.  At the very least, I figured Steve and I would get some entertainment out of it.

As the month wore on, I wondered whether or not I should get a pumpkin for Riggs.  I thought it would be cute to get some pictures of him in his costume with a pumpkin for his first halloween.  I went back and forth all month, then finally decided to pick one up when I was at the store last night.  We dug into it this morning, and although it's not a work of art by any means, I'm pretty happy with it.

Maybe it would be helpful at this point to mention this was the first pumpkin I have ever carved.  We did not celebrate halloween growing up (at least that I can remember) and I just never really had a reason to carve a pumpkin since moving out.  It was pretty fun, and it was so cheery to see it on the porch this morning, with it's orangy-flickery glow.

just seeing that toothy grin made it completely worth it :)
Riggs had fun playing in his costume but as it got closer to naptime, he went from a happy bat, to a confused bat (am I laughing, or crying?) to a very sad little bat.  Even though I hate to see him cry, there's just something about that sad little face in a bat costume that brought a teensy little smile to my face.
