Spiderman and His Amazing Friends

Nov 1, 2013

Remember [this] post?  Louis has been calling Bennett and me “Iceman and Firestar” for quite some time now.  Naturally, we decided to make the transition to a Super Family complete and give him his wish this Halloween.  Even if it meant wearing a yellow spandex unitard. 

Trick-or-treating was so much fun with Louis this year.  He was totally into it and loved the entire experience.  Obviously, walking door-to-door and getting candy wasn’t a bad deal but I think he loves dressing up in character so much that he enjoyed having so many others around him do the same. 

For the second year in a row, it rained on us but it was actually pretty warm outside and wasn’t the worst.  Poor Louis, I hope he gets to have a non-rainy experience soon!  My hair was so much cuter before we headed out the door though….and why we didn’t take pictures beforehand is beyond me.  (Of course, I would complain about something like that!)

If I may toot my own horn, I am super proud of Louis’ costume.  Spider-Man was 90% made from scratch (the boot covers and gloves were purchased online).  I made sure to make it from a soft jersey cotton too so he can wear it as jammies if he so chooses.  Which he will.  Because he’s Louis.

The rest of our costumes were pretty homemade as well.  We had to dye my unitard that beautiful banana yellow, make all of the accessories and Bennett’s muscle suit started out as a Tarzan costume, so there’s that.  Major shout-out to Bennett: he was the only dad we saw wearing a costume.  I love my husband, can I just say that?

Per tradition, Meredith & David brought over the kids so we could see them in their Halloween goodness as well.  I was excited to have helped out with Annie’s American Girl Doll costume this year…by whipping up matching skirts and Annie’s hat.  Don’t the kiddos look great?

Our photo attempt with Papa was thwarted by a certain wiggle-worm Spider-Man.  Good looking bunch though, right?
