Brother can you spare a dime




I know I should not talk about my kid being as cute as he is, but, man he is just buckets full of cuteness in his Halloween costume. Lauren and I went back and forth as to what Maxfield should be this year. I of course like the superhero route. Batman or Superman or maybe one of the X-men. But Lauren convinced me that there is plenty of time for those costumes in the future.
Lauren wanted to try her sewing hand at making a costume and decided on a Hobo outfit. She did an excellent job. She even made the hat.

In an effort to be politically correct we are calling him an "Economically Challenged Person".

Buckets upon buckets! He's just too cute! I love this costume! Great job Lauren! What a great idea! I love seeing all the little spiderman costumes too with all the fake muscles (LOL) but this was way more original! He'll thank you when he's older Lauren! He'll have way cooler baby photos to show all the girls! LOL What a cutie!

He is BEYOND cute! I swear, I don't know how you two stop smooching is adorable face long enough to take pictures!

Lauren did a killer job on that costume, I might add!

Island Jen said...

good on ya, in a year or so Maxfield will have his own willful ideas as to what qualifies as a halloween costume. So Make them while you still can!!
He is definitely a charmer, even (especially) for an economically challenged individual.

Awwww... great job on the sewing Lauren! He is the best looking Hobo I've ever seen! Happy Halloween Max!

Susie said...

Off-the-charts cute kid. Off-the-charts brilliant, talented Mom. Eh, Dad's OK, too ;)

I have to say Lauren was right....Superman, batman are a dime a dozen....I have never seen such a cute little hobo.....You can brag all you want, because he is a handsome little dude.....

And now I know why I cannot give money to the panhandlers on the street. They're not doing it right.

This is definitely calling my wallet's name. Bravo, Lauren.

Suzanne said...

That costume is fabulous! Kudos to Lauren! what a cutie :)

I am a Milliner's Dream, a woman of many "hats"... said...

He IS cute.

Perhaps his adorable-ness (?) will land him a role in a commercial and he won't be economically challeneged any longer...and he could support his parents in the way that they'd LIKE to become accustomed to!
Hh

Susie said...

LOVE the costume. Great Job Lauren! I would give him all my candy - even the Reeses' that I hide at the bottom of the bowl. Hey I'd even throw in a puppy!

Twixie said...

awww he's the cutest little hobo to walk this planet... I bet he racked up out there.
