Love, Buddy the Elf + Maple Syrup

Happy Halloween!

I am pretty proud of our Halloween costumes this year because they weren't put together last minute like I've done for the past 10 years (procrastinator is me). We decided Connor should be Buddy the Elf (which he was actually excited about it so I knew it was a winner) and found a good deal for his costume online, but when we looked up the Jovi costume, it was twice as much as the Buddy one--no bueno. We brainstormed for a bit and Connor came up with the genius idea that I should be maple syrup (because let's be real, Buddy loved syrup way more than Jovi.....)! Turns out, however, that pre-made maple syrup costumes DO NOT exist anywhere soooooo I made my own! :) I was pretty impressed with the results and not to toot our horns, but we might have won a couple awards at the Halloween parties we've been to. ;)

I was going to make Samson a candy corn costume (because elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, CANDY CORNS, and syrup) but I ran out of time/got lazy. We inherited a couple of cute costumes from my dog, Flounder, back home so we opted for those instead. I'd say Samson is loving his first Halloween!
We carved pumpkins at our friend's house the other night. Can you guess which ones is ours? ;)

Hope everyone has a fantastic Halloween!
I'm so excited to see everyone's costumes all over Instagram!

Also, I hope this doesn't happen to anyone because it sucks when people just don't get it:

Cheers.
