This year Maggie had no less than THREE costumes, all due to a costume box of joy that Jenee gave us last year, AND our friend Rebecca who is actually a costumer by trade. We were at her house for something else the other night and she said, take whatever you want. So, Maggie, Daddy and Max scored costumes. Once again, I DON'T DO COSTUMES (ignore the year I wore a shaggy dog costume and sweated to death).
I will say though, after traipsing through bloggy land, looking at everyone elses Halloweens, I am MIGHTY impressed wtih peopls creativity and ingenuity. It is amazing what these people come up with. And, I felt a bit guilty reading how much they all LOVE Halloween, and how much FUN it was to come up with costumes, or whatever. I really need to work on my crappy attitude. ::sigh:: there is A LOT I need to work on, but that'll have to wait for another day, another post.
Here ya go....pics of the kiddies (and Daddy) in all their Halloweeny glory.
Our first Halloween Trunk or Treat
Maggie as a "ballerina"/ice skater with laceless tap shoes (her insistance)
Max as Bam Bam/caveman/Tarzan
Really? What is NOT to love about this little jungle kid?
I can't even handle the cute.
For her school carnival
Little Miss Mermaid Princess
In this pose Maggie is apparently a Bollywood Ariel
Brooklyn is a beautiful Ballerina. No seriously....look at the long lines on that child.
What? I couldn't help it.
Our Raggedy Annes
Jer is silly and loves any opportunity to dress up, especially if he can wear a dress, hahahahaa.
He just thought it would be SO FUN to be "twins" with Maggie.
And I'm not gonna lie....
They were pretty dang adorable traipsing around the neighborhood party.
As for me...I'm just glad it's over.
Now, who has a great costume they want to lend us for next year?
Candy comas and sugar shock,
