It's just over a week until Halloween now and it better get here quickly, because every day Miles gets more and more "ideas." I've already talked about his existing plan (which will, sadly, be fully realized), but this morning he took it one step farther. "Guess what?" were his first words to me today. "For … Continue reading Year 4, Day 238
A couple weeks ago, Miles acquired his Halloween costume. Today, I saw a glimpse at my own Halloween future when I laid eyes upon Jaclyn's just-arrived costume... For reference: Only one is missing now, and it's that goober on the left. So it looks like I'll be Gecko for Halloween, the timid PJ Mask who … Continue reading Year 4, Day 215
As I got out of the shower this evening, there was a knock at the bathroom door. I opened it and...well... "Trick or Treat!" he says.
With the looming risk of COVID infection being far scarier than the ghouls and beasts typical of the season, we opted not to take Miles trick-or-treating for Halloween this year. Instead, we threw a fairly exclusive party for Miles and some of his closest friends. Even though the party had a limited guest list, Miles … Continue reading Year 3, Day 249
Some days, Miles just wants to dress up like Superman and watch Superman. I'll never say no to it (and hey, it also means we can get a little more mileage out of last year's Halloween costume)!
The winds and rain of a mighty storm rattled and shook the house this evening, guaranteeing that Halloween would not go according to plan. Little did I realize, however, just how little regard fate had for our holiday aspirations. Follow me, dear reader, if you dare, into the grim darkness of Halloween 2019. After arriving … Continue reading Year 2, Day 248: Miles Martin’s TRUE Tales of Halloween Horror!
In the interest of maximizing Miles's Halloween (and the usage of his costume), Jaclyn booked a spot for him at an event held by Gymboree this evening. While we had initially planned on taking him to a trunk or treat on Saturday, this proved to be a much better alternative for him, primarily because it … Continue reading Year 2, Day 244
Spotted this doll at Jaclyn's aunt's house. Separated at birth?
Tonight, Miles got to experience his first night of Trick or Treating. Dressed once again in full Wicket W. Warrick regalia, Jaclyn carted him up and down our street, teaching him all about the socialized acquisition of chocolate. I can say with 100% certainty that Jaclyn was more excited about Halloween than Miles was, which … Continue reading Day 248: Baby’s First Halloween!
In an effort to get Miles into his Halloween costume as much as possible this week, we got him all dressed up and took him to the Great Elizabeth Pumpkin Wall, which is exactly what it sounds like. It was a nice, cheap way to celebrate the season (and close enough to the comic shop … Continue reading Day 247
