My Son the Hobbit

This post is definitely 9 days late.
Sorry about that...  Oops.  I've been surprisingly busy this past week and a half.  It's funny how life can get so crazy all of a sudden.
I won't make you wait any longer!
Here is the picture of my son in his Halloween costume.
Not many people got that HE was a Hobbit nor a BOY!  Poor thing keeps getting called a girl because of his long hair that his father and I are in love with!

This picture I know doesn't have the best quality but it's been extremely hard taking pictures of him lately because he's been such a little busy body.
I made his Hobbit feet and cloak, the cloak was made out of an old black adult sized t-shirt.  The shirt, jacket and pants I bought at Goodwill.  I dyed what were khaki pants into brown ones and then I cut his pants and shirt to give them that "worn 'n' torn" look about them.  It was such a fun outfit to put together for him.  I think he makes the perfect little Hobbit.  I also had a double finger feather ring that was tied in with his cloak under his chin and a leather strung necklace with an old ring on it. 

Here's a picture of our pumpkins that David carved that I have to show off.
I drew faces on the one in the middle and the right side.
My Babe couldn't make a cool face with his (on the left) because the skin of the pumpkin was at least a quarter of an inch thick.  Tuff stuff!  You can tell how thick it is in the picture because the pumpkin is all black.  You can't see any light through it's skin like the other two.
The way we figure the pumpkins...
The one of the left is David, the middle is our son and I'm on the right.
Aren't they/we adorable?
We had such a fun time taking our son out Trick or Treating.  I rolled/sprang/fractured/something that hurt my ankle really bad and left me half crippled the day before Halloween so I hobbled around the neighborhood we were in trying to make the best of it.
Perhaps you're wondering how I hurt my ankle?
I saw a tiny EVIL spider on my living room wall, I grabbed a flip flop and jumped up and smacked it's guts out and landed on the side of my right ankle.  OH MY LORD!  I have a terribly ugly black, purple and green bruise all over my foot and it swelled pretty badly.  I wasn't able to walk for 3-4 days, I can walk on it now but it start to hurt really bad after a short period of time and driving even hurts it.  Ouch!
Some say "I bet you learned your lesson, killing that spider and all."
My response "Heck NO!  It might have gotten me to hurt myself but I killed him!"
So who really won this battle?
Spider 1 - Me 2

Again, I know this is late but I hope you all had a safe, happy and memorable Halloween.
Peace, Love & CANDY TIME!

    1. :) I like to tell people that he melts my heart into a puddle of sweet icecream, so I can relate. Thanks Melissa!
