Milton wants to be a dog again…RIGHT MEOW!

Can you please stop taking pictures?

Can you please stop taking pictures?

I want to give a special shout out to PetSmart for the great Halloween toy and Martha Stewart Black Cat Costume. I also want to thank for making it possible for Milton to look so adorable by having a great giveaway. Please be sure to go show PetSmart and blog some love!
The toy is so much fun that the other toys have stayed in his little basket. It makes a crinkle noise like his treat bags and keeps his attention for long periods of time. I have finally seen his selfish side. He will let you touch the toy, but you can’t have it!
The Martha Stewart Black Cat costume is so adorable. The first one was small and we had to trade up to a larger side. Dressing Milton in the costume was easy once Shawn and I cornered him. Yes, he thinks running and barking is fun even when we are just putting his harness on for an “O-U-T” trip! Much to my surprise, the fit was Purrfect! Milton was a good sport as long as the hat flopped on his back. As you can see, he got sick of the photos being taken of him wearing the costume. He probably knows I am going to show it off to the world and this concerns him greatly. My favorite part of this moment was when he started walking like his legs couldn’t bend. I laughed so hard, I actually had tears running down my face. Again, Milton was not amused with my antics!
This will be Milton’s first Halloween and we are looking forward to taking him out for the trick or treating at the neighbor’s house!

It’s Everyone’s Halloween!

It's Everyone's Halloween

As Halloween quickly approaches, we anticipate those little ghosts, witches, goblins, and super heroes. We think of everything! Or do we?
We get the house decorated, make the yard look inviting, buy the candy, and dress for successful frights in the night! Some families really get into it and have a Haunted Walkway or a small Haunted House available for those who dare and aren’t afraid of a scare.
As we look back on past Halloweens, I want you to try remembering those moments that you got upset or annoyed with a trick or treat guest. How many noticed the child that takes too long to grab that piece of candy? How about the child that grabs several pieces? Even better, the child without the costume? There are many reasons these situations occur. Not all children are the same. However, they all have a common goal on Halloween! The goal is to go out and become anyone they want to be while getting amazing treats!
The picture in this post is wonderful to read. Whoever offered it up to be shared for all, I thank you for speaking up! You represent children very well and remind us to be patient, caring, and non-judgmental! You reminded me that it really is everyone’s Halloween. You spoke volumes with the picture! As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
