Here was the plan:
Purchase dinosaur costume for the boy
Put boy in dinosaur costume because he loves dinosaurs, no problem

Make dinosaur egg treat bag to match

Have fun on Halloween trick or treating with other costumed kidlets.....

Here is what actually happened:

Try to put boy in costume

He proceeded to scream "I NO LIKE IT!" and escaped my attempts to get him to try it on

Spent several days wearing dinosaur head going "ROAR - Adam!  Don't you want to be a dinosaur?  ROAR!"
To which he would reply "yeah momma!"

But then would run away screaming when I tried to put the darn thing on

My mom and I actually HELD HIM DOWN and got the costume on (come hell or high water I was determined to at least wrestle him into the thing) during which we almost peed ourselves laughing so hard and tormented the boy as he was screaming "NONONONONONO! I NO LIKE IT!!!!" and then found the zipper and bailed on that bad boy right quick.

Grandparents tried, neices tried, aunts tried...was.not.happening.

Thus enters Plan B:
A close up?

aaaaaand the treat bag to match:

We headed down to the village to trick or treat with my nieces and he got dragged around by Gracie who showed him the "ropes" about getting candy, while we got lots of comments and laughter about his "costume". 

Oh well, there is always next year right?

Happy Halloween everyone!  I love this holiday because it means I can shove candy into my piehole and not feel guilty about it :)

I LOVE plan B. These are the things that are *NOT* funny in the moment, but truly become the stories that stay with us the longest.

The bag and his shirt are genious! Really, really, funny. I'm bummed that we didn't get over to the village. We'll have to try it next year.

Thank you so much for joining the challange.

Honestly, you should start a book of funny little stories. Instead of 'Shit my Dad says'. It could be called 'Plan B'
