This year Smarty Pants knew exactly what he wanted to be for Halloween-- Spiderman! When I asked his 3 year old brother what he wanted to be, I expected him to say Spiderman too (he's his brothers little shadow). However, he insisted that he really wanted to be a spider. Spider? I can do that! So that's how I came to make my first ever Halloween costume. I think Happy Vee is pretty happy with the outcome.

Some Action Shots
Please pardon the blur. As you can imagine, it's hard for a 3 year old spider to keep all of his appendages still while being photographed :)
With help from Spiderman, we got a few keepers...
hey, spidey looks really cool in flip flops!
