Brooks had an eventful first Halloween (as did his parents!) He was the cutest monkey you ever saw!
Despite the fact that he is only 3 months old and cannot eat candy, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to dress him up! Sassy and Pop came over after lunch to see him and witness his monkey debut. Unfortunately he was not his most charming self while they were here, but we did put the costume on him for a few minutes before they left so they could see it. Brooks then took a nap so he would be in a better mood. Once he was up, we had to rush to get him dressed again so we could get to the First Baptist Fall Fest in time. Here he is in the car seat ready to go.
We strolled through the Fall Fest and got lots of compliments on our monkey. We then proceeded to do some Trick-or-Treating. Our Trick-or-Treating was a little different, as we did not want candy from anyone but simply a picture of Brooks with those that we visited…this was an effort to help protect mine and Matt’s waistline as well! We tried to visit Jerry and Carolyn Edwards, but they were not home, so we went ahead and took a picture in their driveway anyway! We then went down the street to Mrs. Euda Raley’s. She had her house locked up and was not planning on taking visitors, but who could resist this monkey at their door? She was also not thrilled about us taking her picture, but we had to! We tried to visit a few others who weren’t home before we made it over to the Gurganus’s to get some pictures of Brooks with baby Deegan who was also a monkey!
We then headed over to Meadowlakes where we showed Brooks off to several of our friends including the Stanleys!
By this time Brooks was getting a little tired of how much we were enjoying ourselves and he was ready to go home. He crashed pretty soon after we got him in the car.
It was a great first Halloween. We were a litte disappointed we didn’t get any of Brooks’ really good smiles while he was in his costume, so I guess we’ll just have to put it on him again another time for a photo shoot! Happy Halloween!!!
