Up

The 2009 Foote family Halloween costumes are up! Well, literally. We did an 'Up' theme this year. We had our ward Trunk-or-Treat party this last Friday. Connley was Mr. Carl Fredrickson and Dalton was Russell the Junior Wilderness Explorer trying to earn his Assisting the Elderly merit badge. Of course there was also a floating house and lots of balloons involved. The boys played their parts so well. Connley loved being Mr. Fredrickson. So much in fact that today for church he wanted to be Carl again. I was able to convince him that the bow tie was enough and he didn't need the white hair or glasses. We had a blast! Now it's time to start planning for next year! :)

This is the best picture I was able to get of Carl and Russell together.

(Notice Russell has a Wall-E sleeping bag on his backpack. :)





All of the kids at the party LOVED the house and balloons. Everyone wanted to take a turn holding it. Apparently I made it sturdy enough because it survived!


Russell kept going from table to table sitting next to different people. I told them he was just trying to earn his Assisting the Elderly badge. It was pretty funny.


What a grouchy old man...




Connley with his best buddy Tristan who was dressed up as the Tin Man.





After the party with their stash.

Here's a couple of close up pictures of the house I made. It is made out of cereal boxes and just glued together and painted. Perfect resemblance, right? Well, it's the best I could do with only one day to complete it. (I was sick at the beginning of the week and ended up only having a few days to finish the costumes. It all worked out though.)

And here's Connley this morning right before church sporting his Carl Fredrickson bow tie.

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!
