The Quest for the "Bot-stume" and Happy Halloween

People.  A look of satisfaction like this is not easy to come by!

Going after the magnolia leaf...  But, I digress.

The search for the perfect costume was an arduous affair.  But, this look makes it worth every single second!  Oh, how I love that smile!

"Okay, really, you expect me to wear this."

It had such a cute butt.

Little Man wanted NO PART of wearing the head! 
We had a Lion costume before this one. 

He had been practicing his "ROAR" for months and his Momma thought the Lion would be the perfect costume!  We were so excited to find one left at Sam's!

And, he ROARED so very well!

 Trouble was... the thing was a little small (as in short in the stride and the head pressed down) and the Little Man did NOT care for being constricted in the Lion outfit one bit.  This shot was just before his meltdown over the Lion persona.

The Pumpkin outfit... Well, I think the photo tells the story.

This was made seconds after we got the Robot costume on him.

It was love at first sight!  Go figure!  The Little Man has his Bot-stume and LOVES his antennae and bot-ears!  And, I love that he loves it!  We are about to be off to church armed with a pot of chili and a Too Much Chocolate Cake!  Chili cook-off and cake walk at the Fall Festival after services.  Yea!  Happy Halloween to each and all and may you find your perfect Bot-stume, whatever that might be.

Those are too cute! They are little but they know their likes and dislikes, no doubt about that!

That next-to-the-last photo at the mirror is truly priceless!! The "Bot" is worth the search. Little Man is very pleased with his Halloween persona.

I'm just back from the "Star City of the South". Kept an eye out for Little Man but had no "sighting". I'll be back at my "post" soon.

Happy Halloween!

Amanda said...

Thank goodness for a pre-Halloween photoshoot with the bot-stume. Tonight was a bust. =( He wore his "stume" with pride, but he just couldn't keep his energy up. Poor little guy. This week has really thrown him for a loop... Bummer...

That is the cutest thing I have seen...about as cute as our little one year old grand Ella as a butterfly with that same belly! ;D

It's Just Dottie said...

Grandbabies are the greatest and the way they steal your heart,oh my!
Dax was Iron Man and he loved
it. Petra was a butterfly or should I say she was until tonight! She would not wear it ,so she went as just Petra .
Smiles. Dottie

Years from now, I hope you show him this post! He knows what he wants and there is no changing his mind! He looks adorable!

And he still has a magnolia leaf in his hand! Something about those leaves.

Amanda said...

Maybe we should see if there's a book titled, "Llama, Llama, Halloween Drama!" LOL!!! I see a perfect plot from this post!

Lauri said...

I love how Alex admires his bot-self in that costume. Too funny and super cute! You definitely found the perfect bot-stume!

Dana said...

Poor little guy with that lion costume on! Everything turned out great with the robot costume. Sorry LM was a little sick though!

Natasha said...

That robot costume is so amazing! What a cutie!

Glad you had a fun time.

Best wishes for a wonderful week,

I have NEVER seen this costume and it is FABULOUS! I just love it! So cute that he KNEW that he LOVED it. He was darling in each and every one though.

Now, what caught my eye was this "Too Much Chocolate Cake" it has to be GOOD.
