my son as a mouse

i mean seriously.saylor as a mouse, it's so fantastic.




look at how it sticks out all chubbs around his hips i love it!
i've been so fortunate to have borrowed many-a-clothes from my friend jenny, who has a son a couple years older than saylor. last year saylor's sweet octopus costume was from them but this year auggie's fireman costume was already loaned out. today we went to a church party thing called 'trunk or treat' and kids got candy from the trunks of people's cars. there was also a bunch of food, games, slides,etc.oh and the firetruck that saylor is on there. and of course this friday is halloween/trick-or-treat. i'm actually going to cleveland to see my husband but my mom wants to take saylor around her block. SO crunch time i needed a costume.i popped into target yesterday and decided to check out their costumes. mostly $30-40. but on one end they had a tiny little sale section. mostly infant costumes.and this big ol' toddler mouse costume! $14 and i swear it was the best costume there tonight. and many agreed- children and adults kept cooing over him and a few said it was their favorite costume.a-thank-you target.plus it kept him warm! now i say it is a unisex costume but i will admit about 8-10 people said 'she's so cute'. there was one other child there that was actually wearing the same mouse and i'm not sure if it was a boy or girl! but i'm thinking girl.i think it's a boy type costume but whatever.i'm still in love with it and i could not get ENOUGH of his little fluffy tush with the tail.here's his backside- him and emily.she was cinderella but did not last too long in her outfit.sarah took this picture only of the front of them, which is likely cuter but oh well.

i want him to wear this costume all the time until he grows out of it. so if you see me at trader joe's or church or somin' and i'm carrying a big mouse.. it probably won't be because saylor begged to wear it, it'll be because i made him wear it.

Your mouse was cute....I think the picture from behind is probably cuter than the one I got...minus my cheesy face trying to get both of their attentions...I'll have to load mine to the computer and check them out.

OH YEAH-and he's so cute on the fire truck-I wish Emily wasn't terrified of it for whatever reason. I do know I got a picture of her SCREAMING as mom had her on her lap in the front of the truck....basically forcing a picture moment-I made sure I got a good scream picture....someday she'll like it I'm sure...

Hi Michelle -

I don't know how, but somehow I missed seeing the tail when I saw Saylor Friday night in his costume. He was absolutely adorable...and so was Emily. I had a couple of people at work ask me if they were twins, and both of those people said, "HE is so cute in his mouse costume." Have a blessed weekend. -Kristin's mom
