King of the Jungle

In my family growing up, we were not normally big Halloween celebrators, nor are we ones to spend any money at all on a costume when perfectly good odds and ends are lying around the house for free, just ready to be made into some sort of goofy coustume.

But when my mom found a little costume for Eli at Canton for $1.50, she couldn't resist.

Behold, the King of the Jungle:

Seriously, though, isn't he the cutest lion you've ever seen? It's a perfect costume for Eli, because his favorite animal is a lion. He roars every time he hears the word or sees a picture of this beloved animal. The other day I told him, "You're being so compliant!" and he roared, because compliant sounds like lion, apparently. :)

So, even though it is only September, I couldn't resist showing off my little guy in his full Halloween regalia. Because, come Halloween, who knows how long he'll put up with having this annoying thing on?
