Halloween 2004 - 2009

As I was getting dressed for work this morning, I looked at the pictures on my bedroom wall and there is a picture of me and Erik during Halloween when he was not even 2 months old yet.  That got me to thinking - I need to create a collage of his costumes over the years.  This is what I came up with...

(Left to right: Erik dressed in a Halloween onesie (I wasn't fond of dressing my newborn up); 4 years old as Spiderman (the girls were little devils and the other 2 fella's are my nephews); 1 year old as a monkey (definitely my favorite costume); 5 years old as a bullrider; 3 years old as a firefighter; and 2 years old as a chicken.

Dear Erik:

Halloween is right around the corner and I can only imagine what you'd wanna be this year.  Everything for boys is so different and you would've had a plethora of costumes to choose from.  I promise you that I'm going to try my best to enjoy Halloween for your sisters, but Bud, I miss you so much that it's hard to enjoy anything.  I love you with all of my heart and soul!!!


PS - Thanks for painting that beautiful rainbow the other morning.  I needed that more than I realized!!

LOVE the firefighter one! I wish I would have had that one when we were making the shadowbox, it would have been perfect!
