How Much is That Doggie in the Window?

Dawson LOVES puppy dogs- he says "woof, woof!" whenever he hears or sees one, so I thought it would be great if he could be one for his first Halloween!

The costume was HILARIOUS...it had a tail and everything...the collar says "Woof!" (just like Dawson!)
The Hutchings Family came to visit before we all headed out to drop in on friends and family. Moo, Web and Vance dressed up as hillbillies. (Ahem, I...yes, I...painted farm animals on Vance's overalls for his costume. Let's just say you're not going to see my work on Kim Wheeler's site ANYTIME SOON. Moo cow? Um, more like mad cow.)
I think Dawson and Vance have their own baby language.
"Hey, you! Give me some candy!"
Our first stop was Aunt Meagan's, where, Dawson got his first "treat"...peach cobbler!
Aunt Meag and D-Word...
Then, we headed to Aunt Sophia's, where Mama Toombs (Sophia's mom) and Alex (Sophia's sis-in-law), were waiting to see the little puppy!
Dawson has a thing for brunettes, I think...
Next, we stopped at Aunt Michelle's where there was a par-tay going on! Jaden had a special treat for Dawson...special baby food, Gerber puffs, a teething toy and all kinds of goodies!
Jaden, Dawson and Aunt Michelle...
All the kiddies at Michelle's set up a "candy store" of sorts with all the treats they had gotten and were bargaining and negotiating one kind for the other...can you say "relatives of realtors?". Dawson had his mouth open, ready to sample any questionable candy.

We also stopped at Aunt Stephanie's on the way home, but D-Man was so tired that he was already sound asleep!

Thank you to all the "aunts" for letting us trick or treat...you made Dawson's night very special!

Lauren, he is adorable!! I love the costume! I'm especially impressed with everybody giving him his special treats--baby food desserts! What a great idea! I wish I had thought of that for my friends!

He is so cute! I love that costume! The first Halloween is such fun and so special.

I am so glad that you all came by.
I am glad you got to also meet more of my family.
They have heard a lot about Dawson so that was so neat that they now got to see him too.

The pic of all the kids with the candy was so cute! Gotta love a good sales person. :)

Dawson makes such a cute puppy! My little boy had this exact costume when he was 2, and it is still my favorite!

That costume fits him perfectly ;)!

I can't thank you enough for letting us come by and for painting his overalls ;)!

Laura said...

You have got one happy little man! Be so thankful. Alise's first halloween was a disaster. I won't even go there. Dawson was SO cute for Halloween! I love the pictures!

That is THE cutest little puppy costume EVA! Seriously cute! Of course, Dawson could wear a sack and make it the cutest. I didn't know you painted on V's overalls. You did an amazing job! SOOOO cute!
