At first the task seemed a little daunting, but I was up for the challenge! I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it was not only possible to make a mini-mascot costume for my little sports fanatic, but also easier and more affordable than I had expected.

Trick or Treating was a joyful, yet elongated event - due to the fact that everyone kept stopping my son asking if they could have their picture taken with "Little Cosmo". In hopes of attracting the attention of his hero, the real Cosmo, my son wore his costume to a BYU football game. Everyone went crazy vying for the attention of "Little Cosmo". Ethan reveled in being the center of attention and felt especially proud when the varsity cheerleaders asked to have their photo taken with him!

I have never known such unadulterated joy emanating from my son before!
