Miles's first Halloween was fantastic! As you can tell from the picture below, he had the stone cold Mummy face down (it is his "you are taking a picture of me, so I will look like a deer in the headlights" pose). He wore his Mummy outfit and carrot hat (that we pretended to be a pumpkin hat) for the day at the ELC, and then we put him in the legit pumpkin costume from Grandma and Opa for a brief photo shoot.
