Just call him
The Sleep Bandit
He comes late at night, using his dashing good looks to throw you off guard and rob you of sleep. I dressed as one of his victims.
The hat is from Poland. Zara to be exact (just as awesome as H&M, maybe better).
This was the Trunk or Treat, held at the church. It’s a common Mormon Halloween activity, where everyone pulls into the parking lot and opens their trunks and dishes candy out to the masses. I personally dislike the idea because it makes it too easy for kids to get buckets and buckets of candy. If you want that much sugar you should have to work for it!
As I am anti corn syrup, and finding candy without corn syrup is nearly impossible, I handed out stickers. I was a bit nervous that I would be the trunk that everyone hated, but they were surprisingly popular. I’m going to make it my thing for future Halloween events, but I need to have a better selection because the choices were kind of girly and the boys weren’t very happy about it.
In between trick-or-treaters I let T1 do his favorite thing. Standing.
A photographer mother and daughter means LOTS of pictures. Makes me so happy.
My mom is a trooper, walking all over Chicago in her boot. (She has a fractured foot.)
Cost of this costume: $0. I did buy the pajama pants at Goodwill, but I’ll wear them in the future so I think the cost doesn’t count.
This is the most accurate representation of what it’s like living with The Sleep Bandit. He thinks life couldn’t get any better, I’m just wishing for a nap.
Those darling pajamas are from Gap, and they were a gift from OMGMom. Isn’t she sweet?
Now, some snuggle time with grandma and grandpa.
Let’s see how he looks without the hat?
Nope, the hat is good.
We’re having a nice time. 🙂
P.S.-I love so many of your suggestions for the heroes and villains costume, and we were all set to be Lois Lane and Clark Kent but then we went to the ward activity and saw an absolutely genius costume pair that we’re going to borrow for the party. I’m keeping it a secret until then but I promise you’ll laugh when you see it. It’s very clever.
