Before we get too far from the holiday, I want to post a few Halloween pictures. Because Toby makes a cute robot, and I'm pretty proud of the costume:
The hat came from this online tutorial, plus some antennae. The front and back were stuffed with upholstery foam from the craft store, and fit over the shoulders like a sandwich-board. He wanted to be a robot, but I was pretty sure he wouldn't wear a box around for more than 3 minutes, so we went with a cute & cuddly robot instead.
And we were Sneetches, because that's Toby's favorite story right now. And because I like the holiday, but I'm not really all that keen on dressing up. Toby has worn the star-bellied shirt around a few times since, and I'm going to keep it in the costume box for him. The plain-bellied has already made it's way to the back of a drawer. Despite the message of the story, nobody much wants to be a plain-bellied Sneetch.
