Because it was nearly 80 degrees outside I decided not to torture Elliott by putting him into his very cute, but very warm, chili pepper costume. He did, however, manage to be festive in a Halloween onesie. He seemed to enjoy the time outdoors, but I think he’ll definitely have a lot more fun next year when he can actually go trick or treating!
