Halloween is always a fun time around our house. Once the magazines start piling up at the first of August, the kids are all on a quest to find their perfect costume of the year.
 Like this weekend, we usually try to visit the Disney's Not So Scary Halloween Party one evening to have a fun night of family togetherness. The kids love to dress up for the event and ride all the rides in their costumes. It seems that there are several opportunities for them to be costumed up and having fun over the course of the next month.
 Early in the summer, Nathan kept insisting that he wanted to be his surgeon for Halloween. Nate has attached himself to this doctor in a way that he hasn't with any other doctors we have...he simply loves this dear man. I think it is because he gets down on Nate's level and actually plays with him. All of our docs are friendly and sweet, but none treat Nathan quite the way this one does, and it has formed a bond between the two of them. 

So, when it was time to order costumes, Nathan flipped right past the super hero costumes and Toy Story and Transformers and said he really wanted to be his surgeon. The outfit was simple enough, except for one special request from the peewee surgeon...that he must have "a beard" (actually a goatee) like his beloved doc. After a little searching, the ensemble was complete. He, perhaps, may be the cutest little surgeon I have ever seen.
This is always a fun time around here for the next month...festivals, carnivals, trick or treating, and the air cooling off just a bit so that it isn't quite so stifling. We are all looking forward to our evening at Disney...a time of fun and carefree attitudes before the chaos of next week unfolds.

Love the costumes!! My girls were at Disney this week as well but we thought it might be too much for Sammy. Tell Nate that Dr. Islam was Sam's surgeon as well and what a worthy candidate he is for this very cool costume!
