Halloween Photos

Halloween five years ago Marc and I were asked to chaperone a youth dance, so I whipped out some costumes for us one afternoon... actually I think it was the same day as the dance, since that's typical for a procrastinator like myself.

*Halloween 2005

This was also a rare event when Marc revealed a more outrageous side of his personality, which left some with their jaws on the floor and their bellies aching with laughter. It included Cyndi Lauper and some Napoleon-Dynamite-like dance moves. He still gets comments about it, five years later.

So, anyway, to make costume ideas simple for this year, we dug out our old costumes and I whipped out some mini versions for the boys.

(Photo quality isn't the best when using an ipod...)

* Those are two little teeth on Ben's smiley - to match his own (except now he has a top one poking through, too)

Fortunately (or maybe unfortunately), for Marc's sake, there was no dancing this year. I'm sure I wasn't the only one disappointed.

And, here's just a glimpse of the craziness of the night and a first time (over) protective Mama. But, really, what 10-month old would survive a pen of crazy kids hyped up on candy (and who knows what else) without his Mom to shield him just a bit?! Ben loved it and seemed oblivious to all the crazy kids about to trample him... I, on the other hand, was a bit of a basketcase. 

(Okay, the video is taking FOREVER to upload... so, I'll try again tomorrow. I need to get some sleep!)

I LOVE your outfits. My sister collects M&Ms so I'm partial to them.

The videos take about 10-15 minutes to load and then another few minutes to process. It's slow so prepare yourself for a wait the next time you try. That's the entire reason I rarely post videos on my blog!!

Love the family=themed costumes! So cute! i just realized I never got back to you about the walker toy we have for Kendra. It's a Fisher-Price brand dragon walker that of course makes noise and lights up! She loves pushing it all over the house and when she's ready, the back legs of the dragon fold in to be a bike/scooter ride on toy. Dual purpose! My mom got it, I'm not sure where from, but with 2 kids getting ready to walk, it's probably worth it! :)
