Thomas was a bust. Or, Halloween Recap 2010.

We tried putting Ish in his Thomas the Train costume quite a few times over the weekend. He freaked out every time. So luckily, I had a back-up costume. That didn't go over too well at first either.
Thankfully, once we hit the mall parking lot Ish seemed to be ok with his costume.
Things got MUCH better when he saw Uncle Brad and Mare Mare.
Once we were in the mall, dare I say, he seemed almost happy to be in costume.
Of course since we were at the mall, we had to ride Thomas.
And Bob.
Then we headed to the food court to meet up with Pop Pop and Mare Mare again.
While Mare Mare ate, Ish colored (thank you Dollar Store!).
Then it was time to Trick or Treat! Ish got the hang of it pretty quickly.
The mall was crowded, so Ish had to hitch a ride at some stores.
Once he realized there was chocolate in his ToT bag, he insisted on partaking!
He did pretty good - and he even shared some of his loot with me and Matt (although he doesn't know he did).
And on the way out, we hit up Thomas again.
It was a looooooooong day! And now it's time for my favorite part of the day - BEDTIME!!! ;-)

We're linking up with Cole's First Blog for Halloween today - be sure to check out this hop!!

I don't know what the Thomas costume looked like, but Ish looks great as a giraffe! Love it! I'm still a little too little to Trick or Treat at the mall, but maybe next year!

Thanks for linking up to my Halloween Parade! :)

I just had to stop over to see how adorably dressed Ish was for Halloween. What a sweet little giraffe. I'm a little surprised he wasn't all for his Thomas costume, tho, as he seems to be such a huge fan. At least he got to ride on him at the mall....a few times, too. :) Looks like lots of fun. Have a great week Gina.

Sometimes costumes on kids doesn't always work as planned..LOL! Funny, because he loves Thomas so much, you would think he would want to wear it. He looked adorable anyway. And seems as though the Thomas at the mall was the best part of the day :)
