Happy Halloween from a cowboy and an elephant!

These two are something else! It's been so fun counting down to Halloween. Marshall has gotten really into it this year. We have eaten ghost and bat shaped pancakes and sandwiches for the last couple of weeks. He points out every skeleton, witch, and scary pumpkin (jack-o-lantern) he sees. Grandma Wallace and Papa Perry grew a pumpkin patch in their garden and Marshall is sure that every pumpkin in the world came from Grandma's house. It's so darn cute! He chose to be a " 'owboy" and he loves getting dressed up. When we were trying to get pictures it was really windy and he was worried about losing his hat. Marshall was either holding onto his hat, holding it at his side, or frowning... grouchily... in EVERY picture I took tonight. No worries though. He's such a cute little cowboy.
And no cowboy would be complete without his weapon of choice, and he undoubtedly know how to use that gun.
And then there was this sweet little elephant. From the time I opened this costume Tyler became my little elephant. It seems to suit him so well. He may not be as enormous as an elephant, but he has that adorable quiet quality... have you ever described an elephant that way? (It made sense in my head. I hope you understand what I mean.) In the last week he has mastered blowing raspberries and sometimes it even sounds like an elephant. It is so stinkin' cute! HE is so stinkin' cute!
Doesn't he look like he's ready to graze...? Good thing we still have these gorgeous weeds in our backyard. wink. wink.
