When we started talking about Halloween, Brady heard candy and didn't care much about it other than wanting candy right NOW! Then, it got closer and we started talking more about it.
He had told me he wanted to a be a train from the get-go but every time I asked him what train, I'd get a different answer.
Thomas. Percy. Hiro. James. Rosie. Emily. Percy. Kevin.
I wondered who the heck this Kevin guy he had been talking about!
Finally, he went back and forth between Percy and Thomas.
A few days ago, his vote was Percy. Then, we went out and bought paint and he picked, blue for Thomas.
Then, he told me he wanted to be Percy.
Sigh. So, we agreed he'd be Thomas since we already had the paint.
It's funny because months ago, I thought I was ahead of the game. I had a few tutorials (here and here ) saved and the boxes and most of the pieces ready to go. Uh, then the kitchen stuff happened, we've had sickness, after sickness go through our house and then, there was no time.
I had put the 'train' together and needed to paint and put all the details on it, which finally happened the night before. Oh well. I might have lost sleep and the house looked like a train hit (har har) but it was all worth it.
He told me he had SO much fun. "Mommy, I had lotsa fun!"
Blinded by the flash, Thomas lost his head after the 2nd house. Poor Thomas. I've promised to put him back on so that he could continue to play with him.
I swear, this was the best Halloween ever. I said that last year but this year was double the fun.
