Let the Wild Rumpus Start



It was such a fun Halloween this year because Gavin really understood what was going on! He is obsessed with the book, "Where The Wild Things Are" so I had been thinking about a Max costume for a while. So when I found this crown...


...obviously, we had to have it!! You must check out this ETSY shop! Adorable customized crowns and party hats for birthdays!
I love doing costumes that incorporate items we will actually wear again. So, really the only thing costume specific is the crown, tail and treat bag. It also keeps things somewhat original which I love ;)
Gavin was so excited to get his crown in the mail but when he opened it up he tossed it aside and acted scared of it. The only thing I could figure out was that he didn't like the fur on the crown.  Anyways, he refused to wear it AT ALL prior to Halloween. We spent the week talking about how fun it would be to dress up like Max but I was 100% convinced that he would NOT wear that crown! It's pretty much a Halloween miracle that not only did he wear it for pictures but kept it on most of the night! 
Whew!


We went to the Prestonwood Fall Festival again this year and it was so much fun! They had food trucks, games, bounce houses, a petting zoo and live music. 

He was excited!

We met up with the Rifes and Hucks and their little cuties!


Gavin was really into the games this year. He loved tee ball, the stroller race, golf and knocking down the cup towers. 




I wish we would have made it back in time to go trick or treating because our neighborhood seemed to really get into it.... and we just didn't get enough candy ;)  
Maybe next year...
