Goblins and Witches

We survived Halloween! Between the costumes and the hair and the make-up, this witch needs a serious massage (and pedicure), or maybe a cruise. I was quite proud of my own costume and make-up, seeing as how it was thrown together at the very last minute (thank you J.B., for the loaner!). Nobody recognized me. It was awesome! I scared the little kids, too. That's always a bonus. L was supposed to be a football player, but he managed within seconds to smear the black stripes which I strategically placed under his eyes. If he was an only child, I'd have done a do-over. But he's number 4. Who cares? And now that Halloween's finally over, I can get down to the business of what's really important---CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS WAY TOO EARLY! Hey, it's what I'm good at.
p.s. The pic of H in the tutu isn't from Halloween. I just think it's funny.

Now, check this out! This picture of the kids with the pumpkins will be one of my all-time faves, I think. Look how they're each making a face just like their pumpkins. Man, are they cute!!

Holy crap, you look F-R-E-A-K-Y! That is a great costume! You all look so great, I'm glad you go all out with your kids for Halloween and all the holidays, really. And I was laughing so hard when you said, "He's number 4. Who cares?" I'll probably feel that way, too, if we ever get to number 4! The Christmas blog is WONDERFUL! Hooray for celebrating Christmas too early!

Jacey, that is a SCARY costume - my roommates and I were all sitting around looking at that freaky picture and comparing it to the pictures of you in the slideshow on your blog and not believing that it was the same person. Amazing what a little costume makeup will do, huh? Everybody looks great!!
