A DREAM Realized!

It was an odd little dream that I have harbored since around March. I wanted to dress my baby up as a priest. For some reason, this was the ultimate of funny in my perverse little brain. I think I felt even more stongly about this than getting a picture of him in a punkin patch--which was HUGE.

As you can see from the last blog entry, we dressed him as a Jedi to match Caspian for trick or treating. I just wasn't sure how a baby priest would go over in my mostly-working-class-possibly-Catholic neighborhood. But, I had the priest outfit at the ready b/c I figured I would use it one of the days at some sort of party.

Halloween came and went and I had not dressed him as a priest. I was getting desperate. So desperate that last night I took both boys to my friend Michele's yearly Halloween party. I am not a party goer usually. AND it was a dark and stormy night. Truly. And way past both boys bedtime. But I wanted to see some friends I rarely see.

And I had to dress my baby as a priest.

I wish I had gotten some pictures of the other people at the party, but I left my camera at home. The costumes were so good (as usual) that my 7 year old, Caspian, was even frightened by some of them. I did get a picture of the most important costume, and quite possibly, one of the most important occurences of my young (ahem) life.

So, without further ado, here is Father Zane.
