Gimme The Candy!

Ollie was DJ Lance Rock from Yo Gabba Gabba for Halloween this year. It was funny hearing my mother-in-law explain who he was to some people in the neighborhood who don’t know DJ Lance Rock from Adam.

He was mistaken for Austin Powers at one house. I could totally see it. Plus, he refused to wear the fuzzy orange hat, which would have completed the look, but wasn’t necessary. His auntie’s efforts were spot-on down to the gold “ROCK” buckle and boom box that doubled as a candy bucket (she used a  six-pack carrier – genius!).

It was cute seeing Ollie get the whole trick-or-treating thing this year. Last year, he was just a furry little Ewok that we carried around everywhere. This year, he thought an open door was an invite inside at the first house, which was sort of priceless.

At another house, a lady at the door bend down to his level to chat and brought the candy bowl down with her, out of which Ollie proceeded to take one, two, three pieces. And a sucker for the road. In Ollie’s defense, she was an enabler.

What a great day for Halloween. You never know what you’re going to get in the Midwest this time of year. No rain or wind and it was sunny – perfect for trick-or-treating and pic-taking.

    Mine went as the mad hatter (two year old girl) but she would have traded all her favorite toys to go as anything from Yo Gabba Gabba.

    It’s so much fun to see them start to partake in holidays!

      You’re right – as they get older, the holidays become more meaningful and they seem to “get it.” I’d love to see pics of your adorbs Mad Hatter! Thanks for the comment.

    I love the “gabba box” you made him! Way to think creatively. My son went as Brobee and had a plastic bag with the characters on it. So when people asked “what is he” I pointed to the bag. I saw plenty of spiderman, ironman, princesses and mario but Dylan was the only Brobee. Too bad there weren’t more gabba friends to take pictures with.

      Brobee is AWESOME! 🙂 What a fun idea. I’d love to see pics!

      My friend sent me a link to a YGG boombox that Target is selling, which would be perfect for Christmas or something if it had an ipod port or CD player, but it only plays four songs.
