For Halloween this year, Scout had an identity crises. He has so many names, you know, so it was a draw between the punker Mr. T look, or the Tennessee look. You decide what fits him best? Finn originally wanted to be an airplane. I should have just broken down and attempted that one, because the pirate thing didn't quite work! I made the mistake of showing Finn some clips of Pirates of the Caribbean on YouTube. He got frightened and insisted on being a (in his words) 'happy pirate'. Hence the red polka-dotted eye patch. Back up a bit.....I FIRST made the mistake of starting his costume on Friday afternoon (on Halloween). Anyway, we went trick-or-treating with some friends in Sierra Madre on Canon Street which is a huge scary production. Maybe that's why Finn has woken up the past 2 nights screaming "Mommy!!" in his sleep. And he has started pretending to see monsters on the walls of our house. Maybe next year we'll just stick with the Harvest Festival!
