Oh, how I love Halloween. Dressing up, eating candy, carving pumpkins, I love it all.
Since we know that our time selecting Riley’s Halloween costumes is fleeting, we decided to make a homemade costume this year. And we had a lot to live up to. His first ever Halloween, he was a hot dog.
Then, for his second Halloween, we upped the ante and went for the gnome costume. And didn’t regret it for a second.
So, we’re fully aware that next year when he’s a 3-and-a-half year-old, he’ll probably want to be Buzz Lightyear or Lightning McQueen or something generic like that. So we knew it was now or never. I present to you, the robot. Made by Daddy.
Yes, he lights up. Yes, that’s an old adding machine from Goodwill on his stomach. Beep beep boop!
So bring on the Elmo costume next year. We’ve had a good run.
