Buzz Lightyear and skeletons

Gabe had quite the tough time choosing his Halloween costume this year. Several months ago we started getting catalogs in the mail advertising Halloween. I gave Gabe the catalogs (because when I get the mail Gabe always asks what HE got in the mail - I always give him the junk mail). He started telling me right away what he wanted to be for Halloween. He started saying he wanted to be Buzz Lightyear. This was the most common choice - but other times he'd want to be Woody, a skeleton, a pirate, Lightening McQueen, various animals, etc.

Last week we were at Target and I told Gabe that we had to choose right away or he wasn't going to get a costume at all. He went back to his original choice of "Buzz Lightyear" - but the costume they had at Target was....well - it was ugly. It was cheap, and ugly - probably my least favorite costume they sold at Target. But Gabe was pretty determined to be Buzz Lightyear. Cory tried to talk Gabe out of the Buzz costume and talked him into getting a Mater costume (from the movie Cars). But before we even got home from Salt Lake Gabe started complaining and saying he really wanted the Buzz costume. So we made plans to return the Mater costume and ordered the Buzz Lightyear costume from The Disney Store online (a different costume than the one sold at Target).

The Buzz costume came in the mail today and Gabe was THRILLED. He's tried it on several times, he's zipped around the house yelling "To Infinity and Beyond!" and having a blast. I was glad to see how happy he was - it almost made all the running around, shopping and returning costumes worth it! He's pretty darn cute in the costume.

We also bought the boys the cutest skeleton pajamas this year. They glow in the dark! Trying to get a picture of the 2 of them together was (as usual) a total joke. Cute boys, not too cooperative when it comes to taking pictures.

So cute. I love the jammies. We got Spencer's pirate costume in Cali at the Disney store. It was a lot, but relative to the expensive junk in the costume catalog, it was a great deal. $5 more and tons better quality. Buzz lightyear looks adorable.
