i shared a few photos on my instagram back on halloween, but i wanted to share a few more over here today because getting to spend halloween with 3 of nasa’s latest recruits was kind of amazing. we’re in good hands, people. these little astronauts make a great team, and they definitely are here to save the day. ;)
it all started with eleanor several months ago and her growing fascination with all things outer-space. we started reading several space books, and learning the planets names and “space food” became a very big thing during play time. (lol. i love her.) samson was on the fence for most of october about being a very scary pumpkin or a fire fighter like last year (i was on board for either). about a week before halloween, he started telling people he was going to be an astronaut too. i made sure to order conrad a space costume as well, because i don’t want anyone to feel left out. ;) and then, homemade jet packs because if you’re going to outer space, you sometimes do not need a rocket ship, you can just go all on your own, even just for lunch. or so my kids tell me. and i just nod and listen. because i’m not about to be the one to burst anyone’s space bubble. especially when they are 3 or 4 years old. i’ve learned to just roll with it.
me and my astronaut team! also, that face sweet samson is making on the right. cannot get enough of this kid. can he please be 3 1/2 year old samson forever?!
sorry, but the lashes and freckles sometimes stop me dead in my tracks.
when eleanor saw this green dude, the balloon she got from a party became a bow and she tried to shoot it with a pretend arrow. lol. good work, astronaut!
baby astronaut coming in for a landing!!!!
until next year, halloween.
PS. josh and i were ROLLING at this clip from jimmy kimmel having parents telling their kids they ate their halloween candy. some of it’s hilarious, some parts are definitely sad (even while being funny). i’m actually guilty of going through eleanor and samson’s stashes and picking out a few of my favorite pieces and eating them after they went to bed. but i didn’t eat it all! i don’t think they’d forgive me if i did. but there were maybe no fun size snickers or baby ruth’s left the following morning. ;)
