Curious George and The Man with the Yellow Hat

Just a few pictures from our time trick or treating in downtown Puyallup on Saturday.  We definitely have a little Curious George (his costume is totally on sale now at Target) on our hands, and with just a couple little tidbits, we even had The Man with the Yellow Hat.  We didn't go all out; I just covered a witches hat (It only cost 1.99!) with yellow felt and made a felt polk-a-dot tie for the hubby.  That was good enough for us.  It made for the best reactions as we walked by they saw Curious George in the arms of The Man with the Yellow Hat.  I love seeing people smile because of a sweet and simple little costume situation.  Boooooo! to the scary and gross costumes out there.  Boooo!  :)  Well really people, to see an itty bitty kiddo walking around in some costume that they clearly don't understand and that you can't even explain to them...where is the fun in that?!  Sad.  On a happier note, I got a great chuckle out of a teenage duo dressed up as Woody and Buzz.  Loved it.  No shame baby.  I bet they are going to be friends for life.

Anyhow, we had fun.  Cooper enjoyed himself and was cute as a button.  Good times for all!

Minor meltdown when trying to get his costume on and take some pictures. 
Tiredness + Hunger = Rough Time
It wasn't Curious George's finest moment.  Poor guy.

It got better.  Yahoo!

Grandma brought the treat bag and lots of excitement!

Grandpa brought the camera and an extra strong arm for holding Curious George.

Curious George and The Man with the Yellow Hat were ready to go!

Cooper figured out quickly that if you hold your bag out and look cute, people put candy in it.

It was so fun to see him get into it...he even said please and thank you each time.

He was definitely distracted excited by the thought of candy.

He stopped long enough to smile.  BTW, the rain did not detour us, or the gazillions of other folks 
out walking around with their kiddos.  Free + Candy + Adventure = Good Times for ALL I guess.  :)

Curious George had to visit his favorite store to check out the tools and
pick up the magnetic paint for the chalkboards I will soon be making. 

One last foot rest before heading home. 

Look at our little Curious George.  He's never really had access to handfuls of candy like that.  He just
couldn't wait to check it out.   Well, you know how it goes.  Every Curious George book starts by telling us...

He was a good little monkey and always very curious.

Happy beautiful Sunday to all.  Be safe, and remember that a holiday which causes for true celebration (Christmas, of course!) is just around the corner!
