{ Happy Feet And The Soccer Player }

Some years I love having a theme for Halloween. We have done The Wizard of Oz, Cinderella and her prince, Sleeping Beauty with fairies, Winnie the Pooh and his friends, the 50’s Gang, and a few others. Some years I am just too lazy tired to come up with something that looks all coordinated and cute. This year the girls had their costumes all planned out, but I couldn’t seem to convince my two boy halves to anything witchy, so we decided that it may just be a not so coordinated year for us.

Lately Scott had acquired this cute little foot dance. It is so funny! He would do it as he skipped/danced his way down the hallway or any time he was happy about something. We nicknamed his little dance his “happy feet” dance. That of course lent itself quite nicely to a penguin Halloween costume. He looked so cute doing his little dance all dressed up.

His happy little feet

By the time I got done taking pictures of the girls, Scott had stripped off the top half of his costume and was running around the yard topless (what the neighbors must think of us sometimes). I had to bribe him with promises of lots of candy to come so he would put his costume back on for a few pictures. Our little happy feet was not so happy with my request, but like a good little penguin shuffled over and plopped himself down on the steps until I could snap a few. Needless to say, he got more than his fair share of candy from the trunk or treat at the church and then trick or treating afterwards. He was definitely doing the happy dance then!

Austin loves Halloween for all the candy, not so much for the costume. We considered many options. His ideas involved a pedestrian (no costume needed), or my suggestion (half kidding) was a t-shirt that said, “I’m with the furry guy” and then he would have to be in charge of Scott all night. Neither idea seemed to pan out, and the least painful costume we could come up with was our good ol’ standby soccer “costume”. By day it’s a uniform, by night it’s a costume. We’re geniuses we know.

Costume of not, this is one cute boy I would totally give candy to. Those dimples are just too cute to pass up.
