Best Shot Monday – 10/29/07


I’m totally cheating this week and instead of selecting one picture for Best Shot Monday, I’m posting a a whole lot of them from our Halloween parade/trick-or-treating adventure on Saturday. What with a cute furry lion and a sweet sleepy zebra, it was impossible to choose just one to share. ;)

My two jungle animals arriving at the parade:

As Julian slept, he sunk further and further down into his costume:

“I’m awake. What did I miss?”:

“Where’s Julian? … There he is!””

For the record, we let Ava have a piece of gum and some animal crackers (she really didn’t get all that much candy) from trick-or-treating. Then we told her about the “natural candy” we had instead in the car. “Is it good for your body?” she asked. ;) “No, not exactly good for your body, honey, but better for it than the other stuff,” I replied. She was pleased with the swap. No need for the candy fairy this year, but maybe next. I do rather like that idea.

  1. Oh, these pictures make me miss Colorado. The beautiful leaves. That Halloween parade went right past my store. The year I was there, it rained and got canceled. We had to watch all of the damp and dejected kids trudging past.

    Your kids look adorable. I love the picture on her daddy’s shoulders with her tail hanging down. And who can resist a sweet, sleeping zebra?

  2. VERY CUTE! looks like Ava had a blast! Did Julian get mistakened for a girl..being a Zebra? My son is a monkey and we went to this trick or treat shindig..and I got asked a lot if he was a boy or a a boy cant be a monkey!?!

    Happy Halloween Amy,Ava, and Julian!

  3. So cute!
    Have you heard of the Switch Witch? She comes on Halloween night, takes your candy, and replaces it with a new toy! Supposedly kids are usually pretty content to trade the candy for a new toy. She is going to be coming to our house this year, but I’m not sure how well it will go over with Kate!

  4. those are a couple of super cute critters you got there! i love how julian was slipping down into his costume. looks like you had a great time and got lots of wonderful pictures.

  5. Well, I’m glad you posted more than one. And how nice to have a trick or treating even in the daylight. Pictures turn out so much better. AND, I may just try that candy fairy thing.

  6. Oh my gosh, no wonder you couldn’t pick a favorite! They are all SO stinkin’ cute! Serious cuteness overload! You captured the day so well, Amy.

  7. My two adorable grandkids look even more adorable in their Halloween costumes. It looks like Ava had a good time-love her trick-or-treating bag. Great shots, Amy, but where is a picture of Mommy? Happy Halloween! Wish we could see you all in person today, one of my favorite holidays.

  8. They look SO cute!! I love their costumes! Did you buy them or did Mama S. make them? So bummed that it’s their first Halloween apart…sniff, sniff. We missed you all!

    Hugs and love!
    :) B.
