Halloween Parties

This weekend was jam packed with Halloween parties! Friday night was our party at church. We arrived an hour late, but still managed get some grub and hang out with our friends while all the kids got their candy.
Lucas mostly sat on the floor or walked around. Yes - walked!

We didn't know how to dress Lucas this year. Last year he was a food service technician.

This year I was going between a dinosaur (a little comfy sleeper with a hood), something with wings, or a punk/biker with blue hair. I settled on the $5 wings. I was kind of afraid to use the blue dye on Lucas' hair, and being a blond punk just wouldn't be the same.

So, Friday night Lucas was an angel with a devil's tail. I had on the devil horns. Ben thought it was lame, but that's what he gets for not giving me any input. Here's a picture of Lucas refusing to look at the camera, and one of Lucas and his new friend, Sophia.

Saturday night was the awesomly cool party at the Baldwinators. I had a brilliant idea to dress Lucas as Cupid. Anyone who looks so good practically naked should take advantage of his brilliant physique on Halloween! So, I ran around like a mad woman Saturday trying to find a bow and arrow, but just decided to make my own. I think he ended up being really cute.

Who knows what we'll actually do on Halloween... we'll see. I'll post a new picture if we do anything cute to him. (That last picture is of the cake I make, not one of Lucas' costumes).

Happy Halloween!!

Lucas' First Haricut

Well, my little guy had his first haircut on Thursday. I'm in ABQ visiting and my family informed me that it was due time for a haircut. Lucas had long stringy hair behind his ears and a cute little curl in back. BUT, it did look gross sometimes - especially when he got food in his hair.
I got permission from Ben to have his hair cut and my dad made the call to Ernest, his trusted barber. We were really worried about how Lucas would react to sitting in a chair for 10 minutes, but we were pleasantly surprised! I gave Lucas his first sucker and he sat pretty still for the entire time. I was very impressed with my little guy, as was Ernest.

Here are a few shots of Lucas and his lovely locks.

My mom was a good sport with the lollipop sharing - she hates banana candy... not to mention all the Lucas slobber.

And a video....
