Halloween is a holiday I haven't really cared much for in recent years. It's mostly fun when you're in a different stage of your life--a kid (fun to get candy), a college student (fun to wear something scandalous and go to bars), or a parent (fun to watch your kid having so much fun! Until this year, it's been quite awhile since I was in one of those categories. Now that I'm a parent, it's fun again!
However, Locke is still too little to know or care about Halloween, which is actually fun for me anyway because I got to pick his costume! I figured, why not pick one he could wear twice--on Halloween AND Thanksgiving!
It didn't take me long to pick Locke's turkey costume--it was adorable online. I knew he was really too small for it, but i figured, hey, we'll give it a shot. So off we went to the pumpkin patch! Well, we really shouldn't have taken him right at naptime...but he's only even HAD a set naptime for a few days so far!

in about 30 seconds flat! Poor little turkey! After he napped, we were at a friends house so I decided to try one more time:
No such luck. At least I got ONE (and I mean, exactly one) of my little turkey looking happy-ish:
As with most things about parenthood, our day did not go as planned. But as with most things about parenthood, we will love remembering it anyway :)
