JJ's First Halloween!

 Here are a few shots of JJ's first Halloween weekend. He got a head start on wearing orange because it was down in the 40's overnight Thursday, making for a very chilly Friday morning and a perfect opportunity to wear his snuggly Longhorn gear from Eric & Jess and his fuzzy frog slippers from Grandma.
 Saturday we released the tiger into the wilds of Springwood Park in north Austin!  We attended a Halloween party for our moms & babies group, and out of the dozen or so babies there were 2 tigers (and 2 Supermans, or, Supermen?).  Can you tell which one is JJ?
 An attempt at a group picture, but about half the babies had crawled off the blanket to locate their mommies.
 A close-up of the ferocious tiger:
 We had to stop by the swingset on our way out of the park.  This tiger cub loves to swing.
 JJ suited up again today to help pass out candy to trick-or-treaters.  We had about 65 kiddies ring our bell, so I guess the moldy jack-o-lantern didn't scare anyone away.  We noticed that several of the kids and parents referred to JJ as a "she" tonight.  It's the first time anyone's made that mistake; even when he was a newborn, he was never mistaken for a girl.  I guess this tiger costume is emasculating.  Sorry buddy!
 Hmmm, what kind of candy should I try???
Twix it is.  Happy Halloween!
