Now Summer has no idea who Dumbo is, but she sure is learning her animals, and she was quite taken with this elephant costume.
Matthew was only 5 months old on his 1st Halloween, but he was a HUGE baby. That being said, the way sizes ran at Disney, I was forced to buy him a 12 month outfit, just so it could fit him. It was a little big on him, but it worked.
Amazingly enough, Summer in her 2 and half year old body, determination and all, squeezed into it, and was quite delighted.
She hammed it up for quite awhile... We even found the old Dumbo movie in the garage in the stacks of VHS tapes and turned in on for her. I guess I forgot how traumatic that movie really is. Mother elephant getting whipped and chained, red eyes, trampling, other elephant mothers making fun and ostracizing Dumbo, them forcing him off heights to be laughed at with clowns, him crying for his Mama...
Anyways we started the tape, and Jake found out and looked horrified and said "Your not going to let Her watch THat Are You?!?!".
Tatum came out of the shower to stop me and said the same thing... I guess we traumatized them as kids, LOL!
