Halloween 2011

I love Halloween!  I decorate the house, wear costumes to work, make caramel apples, carve pumpkins, etc.  Nate, on the other hand, does not really like Halloween.  I got him to wear a costume for his first Halloween, but he was only 10 months old so he didn't make much of a fuss.  On his second Halloween I wrestled him into his Yoda costume for approximately 7 seconds before he ripped it off.  Last year was kind of a fiasco.  We bought him a Buzz Lightyear costume.  Then he decided that he wanted to be Gir from Invader Zim, so I made him a Gir costume.  When Halloween night rolled around Nate decided that he did not want to wear any costume or go out and get candy because... he was coloring.   

So this year, I have really no hopes of anything.  I wasn't planning on making him a costume because he doesn't like to wear them.  I rolled him through the Halloween isles at Target and he didn't see anything he wanted to be.  So I was a little shocked when he told my mother, his preschool teacher, and anyone else who asked or would listen that this year he is going to be "TrackBuzzGir."  What is "TrackBuzzGir" you ask?  According to Nate is it Buzz Lightyear's Body with Gir's head and train tracks for feet.

Lucky for me we have most of the components for this costume already, all I have to do is make some felt train track shoe covers, or not, we'll see what happens.
