he looked pretty much adorable in his outfit. [even more adorable? costume's price tag. those are old navy pj's and i made the hat. $15 for the whole thing.]
last night we went to our ward's trunk or treat and he clutched that little pumpkin all night long. he walked from car to car and let people throw candy in, but really he had no idea what was going on. then mom & dad got to eat all the candy! this is a brilliant tradition.

if you're just joining us, FYI: jack will be required to wear a jack-related costume until he's 12 and/or realizes he can pick whatever he wants. last year was a jack-o-lantern.
for some reason, halloween is always kind of a bummer for me. i always get REALLY excited about it and then our actual plans turn out totally lame. [see also: 2010 with a 3-month-old / 2009 / 2008] this year, our apartment complex threw a party on thursday night so the three of us dressed up -- jack: skeleton / me: witch / b: ghostbuster -- and showed up to find we were the ONLY adults dressed up. totally awesome. after that, b said he wasn't dressing up anymore this weekend. hence the lame cat ears / ute fan attire we are wearing. sigh. better luck next year.
