This is a little late. I should just watermark all of my pictures and posts with that phrase. Anyway, I started asking Griffin back during summer what he wanted to be for Halloween and he went back and forth between a Train Driver and a Garbage Truck Driver. Somewhere in September he settled on Train Driver and I got to work.
I made the train out of some old boxes and tape.
Here is my little cow and my little train driver...or Luigi...we're not sure.
When Griff decided he wanted to be a train driver, we decided Hattie would be a cow in his cattle car. So I just put her in a crate and borrowed a cow costume from my neighbor and voila!
While it looks like they are attached, Hattie's car is just sitting on the front porch step.
Oh and there was a little bell on the side of the train and a light on the front, which worked well for trick-or-treating. Though he went running off the curb and tumbled crashing his train into a million little pieces before making it to the first house. I was able to patch it a little...but this is as good as it looked.
See exhibit A. Though I really couldn't think of a reason to put a moustache on a pumpkin.
