If you like to talk to tomatoes...

...if a squash can make you smile....

Have we got a costume for you!

Can you guess what Becks and B were for Halloween?

That's right. We had our very own Veggie Tales ensemble trick-or-treating from house to house on the 31st. They were quite a cute pair. I just played the ole Abbaratzi, shooting photos like it was my job. I present to you, Bob the Tomato:

Surely, he's making a phone call to some fellow produce. His father, perhaps? Er, Larry the Cucumber, I mean.Bob was super-pumped about the picture, you can see. But, while posing for pics wasn't his thing, riding in the wagon up the street was totally fun.

Trick-or-treating with a sixteen month is the equivalent of chasing a ping pong ball. He. Was. Everywhere. Even stopping once to jump into a pile of leaves while en route to another house. We made it a dozen or so homes before we decided the night would be better spent in the confines of his grandparents' house noshing on sweets.


Oh, by the way, I totally made the costumes. Both of them for $12.77. I thought they turned out cute, and for something they were only going to wear once it wasn't a bad deal.

And, in case you wondered who we trick-or-treated with, that would be Princess Jasmine and her tiger, Raja.

Also, in other completely random news, the boy child has found love in a purple dinosaur whose name begins witha Bar and ends with a ney. The picture below emphasizes the joy that watching that show brings to him, so I guess I'll let him continue to snack while PBSing. Especially since it buys me 5 minutes to do something other than watch my little ping pong ball bounce all over the house.

What a good sport B was! I tried my darnedest to get Daddy Perks into a banana costume to go with our little monkey-but to no avail. Becks is for sure the cutest tomato I've ever seen.

Abby,

Your little mater is so cute... I just want to take a big juicy bite! Awww... glad you all had a great time Trick or Treating! Omg my 6 month old also LOVES Barney! We have like 6 videos that Grammy bought us and it drives us crazy. But it's worth putting up with because you get to see that precious face... just like the one on your sweet boy! =) (I also must admit that I do all the dances for her...and so does Dave.. you should see us rock out "Oh Mr. Golden Sun!"

Walker is super jealous b/c Veggie Tales is his FAVORITE cartoon ever. I think it's just too fun that B joined in on the action. What a cool daddy:).
