GAH!!! I love, love, LOVE that picture. It's perfect!!

Tara said...

You do know that when he reaches his teen years he's going to start posting pictures of you somewhere.
Is there a photo hanging around of Steenky wearing a slutty witch costume or a pumpkin. With orange tights.

Heinous said...

That's a great picture. As long as he knows that he's going to enjoy it...or else, everything should be fine.

Sherendipity said...

can you just clone him and send me one?

Sprite's Keeper said...

Ack! I just wanna give him candy! He must be doing it on purpose!!!
And Jen? It's 8:24AM, I'm back to stalking YOU!

DeeMarie said...

Poor guy. You've threatened to walk him from house to house and help him get yummy treats. How dare you?!?!?!?! :) Can I come trick-or-treating with you??

Vodka Mom said...

me either, Henry. Me either.

Katie said...

Hilarious! Was he trying to man-up his costume with the cammo?

Casey said...

Hah, Henners is a cute albeit suspicious kid. I love it! What's Reese going as this year?

Tracy Lynn said...

So he was an Army dog?

The trick is to make the costume "sound" bad ass, such as with the following suggestion(s) (and my assumption that the costume was a puppy costume):

* Hardcore Hound
* Damage the Dog
* Max, Leader of the Mongral Army
* Warrior Woof

OK, clearly, I'm exhausted. I could do better. Not any better than that perfect Henry photo, but still...my apologies. Please, do not sick Take No Prisoners Pooch on me.

Tricia said...

Great photo. Henry is doing better than my little guy who refuses to put on anything that resembles a costume!

Sammanthia said...

LOVE that picture! He is such a doll... I'm going to send him a HUGE bag of candy just for being cute.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

What have you done to that poor, poor boy!?

You're such a mignotta!!

He's still absolutely adorable even though you're torturing him.

Tracy said...

Oh yes, that reminds me of my dear boy.
Last year, he was a dinosaur and he was an angry one. It was a wonder anyone gave him candy!
The picture is adorable!

Captain Dumbass said...

My monkey's were the same way even after they got some candy. Weird.

You've inspired me to post today.

Jenni said...

there's nothing cuter than a kid in animal ears.

Miss Grace said...

Last year my son, who wears a costume on at least a weekly, if not daily basis, refused to wear ANYTHING but footie pajamas on the actual day.

I would like to point out that this picture was taken in 2006. Henners didn't quite understand the concept of Halloween at age two. It was cold and that was the only jacket he would wear. He didn't like his costume and was only pacified a teensy bit if we told him he was a "hunting dog". That's why the camo coat. He has since gotten over his fear of dressing up. But this picture remains one of my favorite Halloween memories of the little guy.

Rhea said...

He's pretty darn cute. Love the oufit...a mercenary lion? hehe

Rhea said...

Wait, that's a puppy dog costume, isn't it? A puppy going hunting? A soldier puppy? hehe

Jamie said...

He might not like it
but the pictures are fun to see.

He is super cute!

HeatherPride said...

AWwww, I want to hold him and pet him and name him Henners!

Tuesday Girl said...

So cute!

Cameron said...

Wow. Who peed in his Corn Flakes? You big meany!! The poor boy just wants to stay home and eat an apple, and you insist he go out and demand candy from complete strangers.

Kat said...

Puppy dog eyes on the puppy! How sweet!

Jenni Jiggety said...

LOL! That's how I look when I have to go to the dentist...

The Stiletto Mom said...

Ha! He looks like an angry plush toy!!!!

Mc Allen said...

ahahahahaaaaa, soooo cute!!OOOHHHHHHHH he is going to get back at you one day, and I for one wanna see them pictures!! L A

Jennifer said...

I love the camo/puppy combo! Is he Spiderman this year? My son is either Spidey or Batman 365 days a year!

Colepack said...

He is perfect!!!

Anita Doberman said...

Love the picture - expression is priceless!

Lola said...

Well, you took the wind out of my comment, Jen. I was going to say that maybe he just didn't like the whole furry puppy thing. I guess I was right! I'm glad he's learned to enjoy my favorite holiday.

ali said...

Of course not! Who wants hard candy when Hershey bars exist! Take him the 'good' houses next time!

Bee said...

Oh how cute!!

Twenty Four At Heart said...

Precious photo! That's a great one to look back on!

blissfullycaffeinated said...

Love it! Is he holding a hot dog and a tootsie pop? That's my kind of kid!

jen said...

it's so much easier to make a dog warm by adding a camo coat, than a princess.
or a fairy princess...
or two fairy princesses...
wish me luck.
it snowed here today.

one year, i was gonna be something pretty. and my mom dressed me up as a cross country skier. screw MN weather.

mongoliangirl said...

OK. I admit it. That photo looks like something we would see at a distance here on the ranch and say, WTF!

Miss Jack said...

That's adorable.

Red Cup Mom said...

Your kid so rocks. Cute assed photo!

Ron said...

your child fails to take a photo I don't collapse into a fit of laughter over.
