Halloween 2K16

31 October 2016


We're from Kansas and we are super original in our costume choices ...


... the most ferocious cowardly lion and Glinda with the good brows (her request ... )


Here we have Dorothy toting a greying Toto ...


... and a solo Dorothy (who chose to wear absolutely nothing under her dress - which we discovered at the end of the night)

Scarecrow and co. ...


... might I add that those are pants that Simon regularly wore when we met. He hasn't lost weight or anything ... I guess he was just a lover of the Jnco? I don't know. He now wears glorified spandex, as he calls them. Sorry I'm not really sorry that you're tortured by pants that fit, Sime.

And the witches in character ...


If you're in the market for a highly skilled makeup artist specializing in stage/costume makeup -- I MIGHT know a mom. I just might.

Other than our resident Tinman throwing a huge fit about taking photos, Dorothy being petrified of any and all dogs encountered while out and trick-or-treating about (every house), and the kids eating themselves into sugar comas ... we had a great Halloween.

I always keep my expectations niiiiiiice and low on nights like tonight so that we're generally pleasantly surprised by the end result and tonight was no exception. Phoebe kept calling it, "Doraween" (marrying Dorothy and Halloween) and it never ceased to be funny because she was so serious and earnest about it. Simon had no costume but at the last minute stapled straw from a hula skirt and patches from an old shirt all over his outfit and his costume might've turned out the best of all the rest.

I'm deep enough into Whole30 (day 22, bb) that the candy didn't tempt me (fine! the Swedish fish - they didn't look awful) but like every time I do a Whole30 - I get really fixated on cheese which is odd because I'm not a big cheese lover normally. I'm sure you were curious about all of that.

I hope you all had a wonderful Hallo/Doraween!!

  4. Hahah, what is it with husbands & complaining about pants that fit? Mine is the same way. He just now discovered the new Flex Fit jeans at...American Eagle, I think?...which have like, 2% rayon and he's obsessed with them. Might be worth a look. ;)
