I realized Halloween has come and gone and I never posted pictures. So here they are.
Elan was a rainbow bat.
Mikhail's mom Karen made the bat wings. Aren't they awesome?
He and I came up with the rainbow bat costume idea in the car one day. I asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween, and he said "a bat." We riffed for a while about possible bat colors, and eventually landed on "rainbow."
I didn't think the idea would stick, but it did.
Meanwhile, Emry was world's cutest peepod.
And later, when the trick-or-treaters arrived at our house, this is what they saw through our glass door. (Check out the Converse booties my neighbor knit for him!)
Don't worry -- we didn't let him hog all the candy.
