While playing at the park today, I got a VERY unexpected phone call. It was King's telling me that Cooper had taken 2nd in the costume contest!!! We won a $30 gift certificate. Holy Cow!!! Total surprise! Let's be honest - his costume really isn't that spectacular. It is a Santa outfit I bought on clearance 3 years ago when I found out I was pregnant with Cadence!!! I just dressed him in it and did nothing else. I'm not complaining! I'm just surprised!!! This is my cute little Santa! I guess he is just such a stunningly beautiful baby that he had to be picked!
My friend, Tina, who went all out with Monsters Inc. costumes this year(http://www.sugarloot.com/entry/953760721), took third place. When I heard about the contest, I told her to enter it because her costumes are so cool. She could win almost every contest she entered. How silly is it that Cooper/Santa placed higher than little Boo! I'm sad and a bit surprised that Zander didn't win. Oh well! We now have $30 towards Christmas presents. How wonderful!!! Thanks King's!!!
