Halloween Cuteness

Please tell me someone gets this costume. . . please. . . I am not a very good mom.

So many of my mom friends spent hours sewing and glueing, and glittering, and standing in line for their kids's costume needs.

I did not.

And very likely never will.

Since their aunts gave the girls a giant and amazing box of costumes and dress-up materials for their birthdays, I told them they could be whatever they wanted as long as I didn't have to do anything.

I think they chose well.

Since Emma was Belle, we told everyone that Sara was Tiana. The truth is, Sara doesn't know who Tiana is, but we thought it was a funny anecdote. . . Are we weird?

I think maybe we are, because nobody at the Trunk or Treat understood Jack's costume.


I was so proud of it.

He really liked it too.
The Trunk or Treat went super fast because it started raining pretty hard.
They got a pretty good haul in a short amount of time.
Jack and I just hung out in the van and passed out candy. We stayed warm and dry.
After the Trunk or Treat, the girls changed out of their damp costumes, and we went and got a take and bake pizza. When we got home, this is what the girls looked like, so we skipped Trick or Treating, which was fine by me!
Ross, Jack and I just hung out eating yummy pizza and giving candy to trick or treaters.
Girls in cute costumes, rain and wind to keep away skankiness, pizza that I mostly didn't have to make, napping girls (they NEVER nap!), free candy, and lots of cute neighbors at my door. It was a good day. And a good night.

Ah! I didn't get it. (But I'm not one for "cerebral costumes.) But that is clever! I think that was a great idea.

Hmm. Thought I commented. Strange. We all got it here but we were here when you talked about it. I think it is too cute - especially with the exceptional "Jack".

I needed to see the name tag on him to get it. Hilarious!
