The Day After......

Seriously, is there anything more wrong than having Halloween on a Monday? Because really, who wants to go to work for FOUR more days afterwards?! ; )

I have a few pictures to share from our day.......the first few are of Cortney. She absolutely loves Halloween and loves picking out chocolate from the buckets offered to her. My mom and I take her every year and we walk, and walk.......and walk for 2-3 hours until we can bribe Cort with pizza to come back in. I love that she has such a sweet innocence about her. Her pirate "ARRGH" just comes out so sweet and sing songy.....no one would ever take her seriously as a real pirate! (Plus, I don't think pirates ever smile like this, do they?) ; )


My girl.....filling up that bucket of hers!

And here is my teenager who really doesn't understand why you have to dress up to go trick or treating for Halloween. He wants the candy, but doesn't want to participate in the dressing up portion! So I "forced" him into this referee costume. A last minute super quick costume. It did the trick and served his purpose!

And then there is me. Can you guess who I am? I've been told I looked like Annie, Olive Oil....and a few other characters I can't remember. But if you guessed Lucy, you would be correct! And the prop (the vacuum) is actually used at my school......it looks like it might be from the 50's too! ; )

And that's all I have for you today.....nothing crafty, just the family today! Tomorrow I will be back with something creative.....I promise! : ) As always, thanks for letting me indulge. (And Sue and Patty.....thanks for the GREAT costumes!)

All three costumes are great but I have to admit the pirate is my favorite! I also agree about Halloween being on a Monday!

Wonderful costumes- I wish the pirates that came to my home had that fantastic smile. I had to drag my vampire in to study for her test. That sucks! LOL
