the Halloween debate has been settled

and here he is in all of his costume glory...

that's right, he works at Best Buy.

 As Halloween draws near, the great costume debate has been poked and prodded by my lovely wife and myself.  We've briefly talked about the subject a few times, only to move on to more palatable discussions.  Well, that might sound a little harsh, it's not like you're a sinner if you allow your kids to dress up.  They'll probably go straight to Hell, but hey, its for candy.  I kid! 

I grew up going to fall festivals at church and trick-or-treating around the neighborhood.  Then my parents went crazy with their extreme conservatism and we boycotted Halloween.  Instead of a night around the neighborhood, we packed up and went to a hotel for the evening.  I don't know if my parents planned for this side effect, but Halloween became to coolest holiday ever!  We played in the pool, ran around like, on a sugar high in the sauna and steam room, spent hours going up and down the elevators, and, of course, watching cable TV.  Ah, those were good days. 

Laura's parents allowed her to dress up and trick-or-treat.  No "hiding from the devil" in the Bostwick household. 

But now that we have our little one, we must start making-AHHH!- grown up decisions.  Do we dress up our little Garrett and risk people thinking we dabble in witchcraft?  Or do we sideline him from all the fun?  Oh, decisions!*

We'll keep you posted as we figure this issue out.  Until then, we will celebrate the fall.  Here are some precious photos of our precious son!

Your attention please

I interrupt all this cuteness to inform you that I will no longer clutter this blog with book reviews.  But don't dismay, you can still catch all of my insightful comments here:

Saturday Morning People is my new Wordpress blog dedicated to reviewing books.  I'd love it if you would head over there, add it as a favorite and frequently visit.  You should also participate, too.  It's going to be great fun. 

See ya there!

I have a beautiful sister who will very soon give me a beautiful niece

I had a lot of fun going out with my sister and brother-in-law and shooting some images of them before their big day.  And I think they truly got some nice shots.  They're probably going to have the second cutest baby I've ever seen.
