I love Halloween. Mick? Not so much. So, for the first few years of our marriage, we didn't do much Halloween celebrating -- except maybe having some beers with neighbors and handing out candy. Or going to a hockey game. But then CAM came along, and although Mick wasn't able to celebrate her first Halloween, CAM, my sister, and I all did a "family" costume. By the time CAM was a year old, Mick was sucked into my world. We've done a family costume every year. We've done lobsters and lobstermen (twice, once for each of CAM and WHM's first Halloweens), the Flintstones (twice-- and NAILED it -- as in, could have won serious contests had we entered!), Gru and his minions, Brave (Merida, the king, queen, and triplets), and now this year, we put together a football ensemble.
It's cold here in Maine. Check that: it's cold and RAINY here in Maine, so we had to sacrifice some authenticity for warmth. But here are a few snapshots to whet your appetite.
We've had a very busy few weeks, and I'll be posting more photos this weekend, when I can use blogging as a prize for checking piles of grading off my to-do list.
|I took a few of these, but in this one, WHM's eyes stole the show.|
