First off, I have to put a disclaimer on these first photos. These costumes were made in FUN, not to make people mad, or get us on the news having to apologize to the world. Freedom of Speech, baby.
When Brandon and I were in Egypt in May, we bought these costumes (sans dynamite)specifically for the super fun of Halloween. When we got all dressed up, of course the thought crossed my mind. How could it not? So we went with it. Brandon is a genius. I could not have made a better bomb myself. Gotta love wooden dowels and spray paint. And cheap clocks from Ikea. And Boy, do I love our uni-brows. Almost my favorite part.
Cam was a cute Harry Potter, which was fun, because his cousin was Hermione. Eamon was a boxer, but due to him tossing me the body part of his costume (without me seeing) and it landing in the toilet, his robe and gloves accidentally got left at home. Poor kid. After that, it was a frantic day, with us forgetting multiple costume pieces, driving home, and still forgetting his stuff. What with that and the hole in my house (follow up later)...it's amazing we finally made it.
Here they are participating in the donut-on-a-string contest. My boys get their fervor from me. Cam won.
Check out the cookie on a stick Eamon is sporting. SUGAR!!!
Here I am with my brothers. I did this last year and won, but not with them, and this time they thrashed me.
Poor me. I included even the most hideous of the pictures, since I am an unbiased observer... Really it's just middle child syndrome. (Dan won at the last second.)
Oh My!! Klint & Mary (disco divas), Mom & Larry (Palm Springs retirees)
Here's my little sister and brother Mary & Mikey. So the "dress" Mary is wearing is a skirt I bought at Saver's in high school and actually wore to school. I was a freak.
Here's all the Lay-deez. (Mom, sister-in-law Adriene, me, sister Mary, sister-in-law Jayann)
Here's Eamon, rockin' Uncle Klint's shades.There were only 3 groups of totally non-P.C. costumes there. We are not stereotypical in the least!! We had a great time!! Brandon only had to threaten to detonate a couple of times. Anyway, we love having a reason to always dress up for Halloween. Thanks for having the party, Parents!
