I decided our tactic for the Halloween costume this year would be to not tell E about it. Really at all. No need for him to worry about putting it on--the fact it had a hat that made the entire outfit--etc.
So we didn't. We just changed his clothes and went to our friends house who were gracious enough to host our entire friends group plus kiddos for a photo opt.
This photo may be one of the best ones of E and me, ever. Especially because he's a sockmonkey in it!
Getting photos of all the kids was difficult, of course, but the drama of it all made it fun.
Maybe the only real photo of kids plus parents I got!
