Friday's Foto Finish Fiesta ***UPDATED***

It's been another very long week but I am so glad it's Friday for many reasons.

One of those reasons is because Friday means Candid Carries Friday Foto Finish Fiesta! For this week's picture I have decided to share two pictures and I am sticking with the Halloween theme.



This cute little pumpkin is Emma on her first Halloween. She was only three weeks old so we dressed her up and she sat with Dave and I as we handed out candy.



My little Cowboy is Ian on his first Halloween. Since he was a 10 months old he got to go door to door with us while we took Emma. It actually rained that year so I carried him and an umbrella and I thought my arms were going to break off by the end of the evening.

***** I realized a few minutes ago when I re-read my post that maybe I should have said why each my kids were what they were for their first Halloweens because there is a reason. First Up Emma; Shortly after we found out my due date for sure and we were told it was in October we started calling the baby our lil pumpkin. Then one day about a month before I my c-section Dave and I were in Babies-R-Us picking up the last few things we needed and we saw the Halloween costumes, one of which was the pumpkin one and we could not resist it seemed perfect! We still call her our lil pumpkin too and I think it's a nickname she will be stuck with for life.

Ian's reason is a little more selfish on my part but it worked and it was super cute. I wanted something different than the sports or car themed nursery for Ian and one day while I was pregnant it hit me that a cowboy themed room would be too perfect. So Ian's nursery and room now has a cowboy theme to it. Shortly after I had Ian my mom and I were in Babies-R-Us (I'm starting to see a theme here) and I found a picture frame that had a boy riding a horse and it said My Little Cowboy. Of course I bought it but I couldn't find a picture that looked right in it so it sat for months with nothing in it then one day it hit me. Ian would be a cowboy for his first Halloween which would be so cute and I could take a picture of him to put in the frame. The picture in the frame is the one above after the couch pillow was cropped out.

So now you know the stories behind the costumes. The End****

Do you have any ghost or goblin pictures to share with us? Well then head on over to Candid Carrie's right now and join the fun!

Oh my Emma, she was so teeny. I have one of those little pumpkin costumes... Hannah was a little older when she wore hers. I will have to find it and send it to you.
