I managed to come up with a pretty great costume idea this year, if I do say so myself. I don't ever get into halloween, mostly because I can never think of anything creative. When Christy said that her son was going to be a football for halloween, that got me thinking.... We're not as much a football family, but we sure do love baseball.

So without further ado, here is our adorable spitball! (With his daddy, the baseball player!)

I painted a onesie to look like a baseball, freehanding the stitches, but using freezer paper stencils to make the MLB logo that is on the front and the Wilson logo that is on the back. I love how it turned out. Jeff's costume came together well - we found this baseball jersey at my parent's house (from a team in Panama, I think) and I bought some baseball pants and socks.

Plus he's a spitball. I crack myself up sometimes.

Yes. That is me. As home plate. Hah.

Hahaha! SO cute, I love it! Somehow I've gotten progressively worse about Halloween costumes as the boys have gotten older. Brighton is adamant about going as Yoda...Levi's 24mo costume. Ah well :)

LOVE IT!!! Judah's costume is hilarious. I'm sure he provided authentic spit for the costume too, if he is anything like Gemma!

Belated wow! And, glad to see Jeff's found a new team to root for besides the Cubbies--they're cute, but winning is attractive too.
