In spite of my efforts to the contrary, things keep happening. Alas, Halloween was a fun day and here is the proof.
This year was pretty easy costume-wise, thank goodness. Will wanted to be Sherlock Holmes, which just involved teaching him to say "Elementary, my dear Watson" and giving him my tweed coat to wear plus a great hat and a homemade cape. Oh and a magnifying glass. Tyson wanted to be Cookie Monster, purportedly because can do such a great imitation of the voice. He borrowed the hat from a friend, found blue clothing and painted his own face blue with some blue eyeshadow. He insisted on tilting his head down for all pictures... Zach decided to dress as Harry Potter at the last minute. He was very cute and had that fact verified to him by a group of teenage girls, which absolutely left him beaming. Oliver stayed home with me but was dressed in the boys' old froggy suit and was adorable!
We had an awesome crowd at the house and enjoyed food and general silliness. Baby 5.0 and I
are sooooo glad its cider and pumpkin cake season!
And then there is this mildly disturbing photo.
Last but not least, here is what I did with the loot.
