Picking a Costume

So I'm not really a Halloween girl. I like the candy part but all the spooky, ghoulishness gives me the creeps.

But this little guy might change my thinking about the holiday...



I love how excited he gets! I'm glad to be back home playing with him.

Ahem...as a former child and school psychologist I must say, in my professional opinion, this child is gifted! But what gets me the most is his joy and energy. Oh, I totally understand why you just love him to pieces!!!!

I love this video! My son is convinced that this video is of him. Here's a link to my old blog with his picture on it, he was about 18 months when this was taken.

He also is sure he hears his name "Duncan" when Alfredo says "dragon".

Thanks for sharing!

Okay, I can't believe I'm posting a comment after Mary Engelbreit-- could it really be? (She's so inspiring!)
Anyway, I've just got to tell you, Alfredo always makes me smile! I have a feeling you're going to have fun with Halloween this year!
Hugs,
Jill

How fun! Cute Halloween dressup on adorable little fellas warms anyone to the holiday. I dressed Buddy Budderson as Jaime Oliver, the TV chef one year.

Perhaps Alfredo would enjoy being Emeril??

Dear Amy

I was in the store today and all the Halloween stuff was out. I thought I bet Amy enjoys Halloween this year because you have Alfredo's eyes to experience it through this time. Seeing and hearing Alfredo's excitement and delight and your pleasure in it is so heartwarming.

This is truely the sweetest youtube movie I've ever seen! All the excitement, It's just too adorable for words. I bet you'll be wearing a Halloween costume this year ;)

Hi Amy,
Honest to goodness, I had chills watching Alfredo look at those costumes. He is so precious and your sweet guidance is so evident.
Welcome Home!!

My daughter is 12 months old and not saying words other than 'mama', 'dada', 'mee mee' (for meow) and 'boeuf' (for woof), but I can't wait for her to start getting excited about things like your little one! :)
By the way, I love your blog. I love your creativity. Thank you for sharing your talents with all of us!

I think Alfredo has gotten ME excited about Halloween now!!! If he ends up going as a Zebra, I'm going to HAVE to see a photograph!!!! I'm thinking Noodlebug is going to go as Charlie Brown.

Amy he is totally adorable! I love his voice...when they grow up you forget how cute they sounded when they were little. My son is 9now and I recently watched one of our videos from when he was 3. It made me tear up hearing him. How quickly it all goes by...

Amy, This just made my whole day. I laughed out loud with tears in my eyes. Thank-you so much for sharing. We too have been trying for years to get pregnant. Adoption doesn't feel right at this point for us. I made my husband sit and read through all of your postings. We have deicide to foster after the first of the year and signed up for the class. It will bee a struggle with the shop but you have proven it can bee done. You are honestly the sweetest and purest inspiration. God Bless you for this blog - AmyB. (you may remember me formally ShabbyTiques) have had the shop now for four years after closing the site down…
