We had soooo much fun tonight! (Well, after we survived the Last-Minute Costume Switch.) After the girls shot down my brilliant idea to go as a 4-woman Punk Rock Girl Band, they knew they didn’t have a whole lot of options. If you’ll remember from this post, I’m a cheapskate and can’t sew.
So. The choices were: a.) soccer player (which Livi has done for at least 3 years) b.) something princess-y from the dress-up box (my girls are vehemently anti-princess these days) or c.) a ghost.
Three ghosts it is.
Except when Nina’s sheet kept sliding around and her eye holes weren’t lining up and she started to cry. “Do you want to be something else?” Yes. “A princess?” NO! “A clown?” Sure.
Big sister to the rescue.
Voila! (and isn’t my birthday banner beautiful??)
I could just eat her. (And yes, she has a pom-pom on her head.)
Her cute big sisters. (No, they’re not twins, but they get that a lot.)
This is our friend Micah, one of the funniest three-year-olds I know. If she were up for adoption (which she sometimes is), I would snatch her right up. But I love her mommy and daddy (Krista and Doug) too much to take her (except for the times they beg me to).
Micah, who generally adores Livi and Ava, was actually a little scared of them tonight.
Here are Doug and Gabe, armed and ready to hand out candy. They don’t know this (and they aren’t going to like it) but next year we’re swapping roles. I told Doug he had to dress up to pass out candy, and so he did. 🙂 Just messin’ with you, Doug-O. (My “little” brother doesn’t live close enough to pick on, so I pick on Doug.)
I’m so bummed that I didn’t get a pic of me and Krista, but Nina was having one Clown Wardrobe Malfunction after another, and it just didn’t happen. This is Krista from the rear, which is the angle most pregnant women preferred to be shot from, no? (she looks hot anyway, so it doesn’t matter)
Livi and Ava with some of their friends from our neighborhood.
Brothers D and D who are seriously going to be famous someday. Last year at the bus stop, they would perform original raps that were stinkin’ hilarious.
And there you have it. Halloween 2010 in the books. Can’t wait to tell you what I passed out while we were trick-or-treating! (Next week!)
Have a great weekend!! I know I will! (I have a 24-hour kiddo-free date with Gabe the Babe!)
p.s. Keep those Expecting donations coming!! 42 on Day One! You people ROCK!!
