The boy has style.

Carlos had a great time last night trick-or-treating. He was really too young last year to care about Halloween, but this year he was totally into it. We just went around to a few family members' houses, but that was plenty - he got more than enough candy and excitement.

So I was thinking - with as much work as Carlos' grandma put into his costume, it seems a shame to use it once and never again. And I'm not the pack rat type; I'd rather know that someone else is enjoying it than hold onto it myself out of sentimentality. So if any of you guys would like to have it for next year, I'd be happy to pass it along. It fits Carlos perfectly - well, maybe just a smidge on the small side - and he's a bit small for a three-year-old, so it would probably fit most two- to two-and-a-half year olds. If you have a child who will be around that age next Halloween and who would like to dress as a stylin' rooster, let me know.

In other news, my much-coveted boots arrived yesterday. I'm happy with them - they are really cute - and even cuter on Carlos than on me!

The boots look great on both of both wear them well.
And that's a great idea to share the rooster costume. Thelma did a beautiful job with it.

That is the cutest costume!
