On Saturday we had our ward Trunk-or-Treat party and so we dressed Connley up in his Halloween costume. This year we decided to make him an Oompa-Loompa. We figured it was the perfect costume for him because he is small like an Oompa-Loompa and shaped like an Oompa-Loompa, not to mention he walks like an Oompa-Loompa! So I gathered what clothing I could and had to sew a few things to put it all together. It was hilarious dying his hair green! Yes, it did come out. And we made orange face paint for him out of crisco, corn starch, and food coloring. We were surprised he took the makeup so well, it didn't seem to bother him at all. The whole evening everyone would just crack up when they saw him. There was no costume contest but everyone kept asking if he had won it.

Connley had fun going from car to car getting candy. His bag was almost the size of him so he had me hold it and he'd go grab his candy and then put it in his bag. He was confused on how it all worked at first, but then he caught on rather quickly!

We had a great time at the party. All I have to say is life is SO much FUN with a kid! I don't know what I'd do without my little Conn-Man!!

I found you through Michelle's blog and had to come look at yours. What a good sport Connely must be to let you dye his hair and put face paint on him. He looks adorable. It looks like you guys are doing great!

Connley's High Tech Space Shuttle

Connley and I built a space shuttle for him the other day. He kept sitting inside this box that I was meaning to throw away and decided that he was having so much fun with it that we should color it and make it something cool. So it is his NASA space shuttle, called Space Shuttle Connley. Once completed I had him sit in it and I pushed him around the apartment until I just about fell over dead (like after one minute!). So, that was our fun little project!
