i’m finally recovered from halloween out-and-abouting. i gotta say that it seemed like it was all hard work for mom and no payoff until the kiddies really got into it. AND now i get to type with one hand while the other feeds a snickers to my belly!
these first few are taken at my mom and dad’s. we came straight from the HOOT film series to my parents so darla rode 3 hours in her costume. it didn’t look too worse for the wear.
she’s a tightrope walker. see those balancing skills! maybe? inspired by this post and accepted by me as a cosmic sign from the universe b/c my favorite band in the whole entire universe has a song titled “tightrope.”
sooooo good. ahhh, i used to say that if they invent time machines or portals that i would want to go back to woodstock but these yeasayer vincent moon sessions are really in the running. why wasn’t i in that apartment that night!!! gaaarrrrrr!!!!!!
but i digress. back to the pics of mi amor.
so, action shots were hard to get that night. we went around with the burkeybuns crew (minus working momma = sadness) and this was all i got. oh, and a boatload of candy.
adam went as paul from sgt. pepper’s lonely hearts club band and his costume was outta sight! he and darla were somewhat coordinated but you couldn’t tell through the overcoats and pieces of costume falling off all the time and kids never in the same spot for longer than 2.35 seconds. i, me, myself personally, went as a flower garden. to achieve this i put on every piece of floral patterned clothing i own and stole darla’s flower headband. it really ended up looking more like a bag lady getup. other moms were not impressed.
in short, it was fun. i think i’d do it again. maybe in about a year.
