Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers on Bearhug's behalf. We've also gotten some good suggestions... we're going to get this figured out. So far this week has been pretty good (yay!).
On a lighter note, here are some pictures and a recap from Halloween :).
I couldn't figure out how I was going to make a Salamence (Pokemon) costume, so we tried taking the boys to the Halloween store to see if they could find a costume there. No luck. I asked Cuddlebug what his second choice would be, and he named another Pokemon. Third choice? Another Pokemon. None of which are readily available as costumes.
And to add to the fun, Bearhug decided with just over a week to go that he wanted to dress up after all, as Garchomp (yep, also a Pokemon). So I headed to the craft store. I had some pictures from the internet to use as a guide of what the characters were supposed to look like, and I used the boys' clothes as a guide for the size / shape (being careful to err on the side of "too big" rather than "too small").
Here are the finished costumes, with the characters' pictures:
And the boys wearing their costumes. They were so excited to dress up as Pokemon :).
Bearhug as Garchomp:
Cuddlebug as Salamence:
And you can't dress up as Pokemon without having a Pokemon-battle, of course :)
Little Bitty was not at all interested in costumes or trick-or-treating. We did, however, discover that he loves to eat "M's" (M&M's). :)
So I took Cuddlebug and Bearhug out trick-or-treating.
Bitty stayed home with dh to hand out candy. When we made it back to our house, we found him relaxing, curled up with a blankie (they were in the garage which dh had decorated for Halloween).
Bearhug and Cuddlebug went inside to check out their stash. They sorted all the candy by type and lined them up in rows.
Bitty was curious and came over to inspect the candy too. Here all three of them are busy counting. There were 153 pieces of candy in total :).
Cuddlebug did the math the next day to figure out how many days the candy would last if each of us ate one piece each day... but we haven't exactly done that ;).
