A Princess and A Grumpy Spaceman

I had a different picture of Halloween in my head this year (shocker, I know). The original plan was to turn Delaney's flower girl dress into a Cinderella gown and make a Gus Gus costume for Brody. For those that dont' follow the fairy tales, Gus Gus is the fluffier mouse on Cinderella...the one who says, "Hap hap hap happy birthday!". Ok so that didn't happen. My mom did a great job on Delaney's dress.... we just called her a beautiful princess and for Brody, he loves Buzz Lightyear, so that's what we did.

Halloween day was jammed packed with church, bible study and a birthday party. We got home from the party and literally had to change them into their costumes and jet. I got Delaney dressed and put some makeup on her (that was so cute) and I could hear Eric getting Brody ready. For whatever reason, he was a pissed off little space ranger (turns out he had a sinus infection and wasn't feeling swell). Here are some of the pictures we attempted:

The rear of Buzz Lightyear



At this point...we left.

Still pissy.

We went to a neighborhood nearby that I used to Trick-or-Treat in when I was little and boy was it nuts! We loaded up the stroller (way too scary to let them walk with no sidewalks and no lights yet) and we made it to the first house. We put Brody down and told him to follow Delaney. Delaney was so in her element. The people played right into her. "Oh you look beautiful!" And she would reply, "Thank you, I know."  She got her candy and Brody got his.... but then he tried to go into the house and when i grabbed him....the screaming started again. He just really wanted to go into every one's house!

The first house....

This is me trying to get him away from the poor lady.

Like every good mother, I bribed him with a sucker.

He wouldn't even hold the stupid bucket!

Little break for some tortilla chips.Totally normal.

Again, trying to get him to at least attempt this on his own.

We decided to call it a night, but first headed over to Nana and Granddaddy's. Delaney was infatuated with the Jack-o-Lantern and Brody just wanted in the house, so again no pictures of the two together, but here are the rest from that night!

Still a little miffed...

Maybe Granddaddy can make him happy:)

Happy watching Caillou

My princess

Awwww.... a nice moment.


  1. Very cute! Gus Gus was my favorite from Cinderella, I loved him!

  2. I'm so glad that I'm not the only one that has great plans for pictures and they fall short, but Brody still looked adorable. And Delaney is just too much!

  3. I would have loved to hear Delaney that night : )
