In high school my need to craft gifts, plan events and provide food for my friends earned me a few nicknames.
One was Mama. Another was Martha Stewart. I thought I would treat my friends a laugh by showing up to a friends annual Halloween party as…
Yep. Martha Stewart. Complete with blond wig and a center piece of Indian corn and gourds as my prop. The bonus of this costume was it’s comfort level. Seriously khaki pants, a button up shirt, a cardigan and flats was way more comfortable than most costumes.
Luke decided to throw together a Mexican cowboy at the last minute. I actually bought him the mustache to go with a different costume idea he seemed to have decided on. Between him and Maddy there was a lot of ideas getting thrown out and not a lot of actual settling on those ideas. Luckily it went with this costume too and since he doesn’t normally grow a lot of facial hair it was hilarious. And weird.
Of course Luke and I decided to trade our costume hair at one point in the night. Wouldn’t it be weird if we didn’t? Besides it was a good chance for me to see what I would look like if I grew my mustache out.
I kid. I kid.
Maddy spent most of October waffling over her costume. Cat. Ballerina. Tiger. Fairy Princess. Train Conductor. Cat. Elephant. Cat. Once she found this little dress she was sold on Fairy Princess. She was adorable running from house to house with her friends want in hand. After each house she would run out to Luke and I yelling about her candy eager to show us her loot.
Even though her learning about the major Halloween-Candy connection scared me a bit. It was adorable to take her out for her first night of trick-or-treating.
She was pretty thrilled with all the candy. She still is. I would like to plead the fifth and not discuss how much of her candy has made it through my digestive system.
I know we are all over Halloween and that we have been since well, Halloween. But I take my duty as a blogger seriously and I would be failing miserably if I didn’t share Halloween pictures with you.
