My Soldiers: Big & Small

Ben had a drill this afternoon with the ROTC and was trying on his gear and making adjustments.  Off to the shooting range was the plan!  I couldn't help myself, and out came the camera!
Nephi wanted to get involved:
And so did I!  (Even if I was looking a little scary without makeup).
Then there was a knock on the door and it was the UPS guy with a package.  I looked at it and realized that the boy's Halloween costumes had come!  Now, most of you know, that I have a tradition of making my own costumes every year, BUT this year I just couldn't help myself!  I pulled it out of the bag and Nephi was so excited he could hardly get it on fast enough!!!  And I once again grabbed my camera:
Does it get any cuter than that!?  Well, maybe if Sam was in it too... but he was at school and all I can say is that it's a good thing too, because I can't get Nephi to take it off now!!!  Sam would have had a complete melt down if I made him take it off for school!
Now, I am waiting for Sam to come home!  I can't wait to see his face when he sees what he got.  So much for Halloween "surprises" huh?

That last picture is one of the cutest things I have ever seen! I'd have that thing blown up and covering an entire wall. LOL!
