Rizden Read, Baby Dressed As Carl From 'Up', Has Most Adorable Costume (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Yeah, yeah, Halloween was last week, and now we're gearing up for Thanksgiving; we get it.

But we couldn't move on to turkey and stuffing without sharing photos of this adorable 1-year-old dressed as Carl Fredricksen from "Up."

Seriously, the dark-rimmed glasses sitting on top of those chubby cheeks, a mini old-man sweater, makeshift walker... And bright happy balloons? How perfect can you get?

The cleverness was the brainchild of photographer and mother Stephanie Read from Auburn Soul Photography. She dressed her son Rizden in the getup for a community Trunk or Treat event, an alternative to door-to-door trick-or-treating, where people gather in a parking lot and decorate the back of their vehicles and pass out candy.

Read told The Huffington Post that she snapped the pictures before heading out for the event. She said if she knew they'd become so popular, she would have taken more time on them.

Well, we (and the Internet) think they're pretty great.
