My nephew Jaxon’s birthday is the day after Halloween so he always get the most elaborate Halloween-themed birthday party filled with spooky treats, fun decorations and a bunch of guests decked out in costume. What a lucky kid! Excuse me, a lucky 4 year-old kid now!That’s him up there dressed as Superman. When we all sang “Happy Birthday”, he suddenly became very shy, put his fingers in his mouth and refused to look at anyone but his mother. It was adorable.
Bob as a Trekkie (hint: look at the ears! Also, I’m covering his insignia). Me as Tom Cruise. My brother as something gross and frightening. And all the kids (pictured below) as either princesses or superheroes. I couldn’t snap a non-blurry photo of them because they were either dancing, jumping or running. Naturally.
My nephew Mason is probably the only kid I know that will stand still and play up to the camera like he does (that cute little ham). He takes his role as a ninja very seriously. Those karate lessons are really paying off.
This time of year is just pure fun, isn’t it? I’m already brainstorming costume ideas for next year. I’ve been dying to go as 90’s Courtney Love for a few years now, but it requires an appropriate venue (read: not a child’s birthday party).
Did you dress up too? Or are you going to?
