so we're here, and we're slowly getting things put away and organized. i'm feeling less stressed and more motivated to actually do my homework and get back into life. so, without further ado...i will finally post pictures from halloween. due to the extremely busy circumstances, i did not dress up as mrs. banks from mary poppins, as i hoped to do. i had to just use what i had on hand....my clogging shoes, my old petticoat from when i was 13 (yes, it still fit!), and a black sequin top that i happened to love and keep from halloween past.
it all begins with a 27-year old guy that i know....he has a mohawk....he's an engineer...he's my husband.
not sure how proud his mother will be of his chosen hairstyle, but she is already comforted in knowing that it is long gone. probably somewhere in a landfill already. his hair was getting out of control for a few months there at the end. i needed it to be short for more reasons than one. luckily, as halloween approached, he agreed. so the mohawk was put into action. the morning he went to the open calls auditions for the tv gameshow wipeout we glued it in place. what? you didn't know that elmer's glue is the best mohawk helper? there...now you do!
the 'hawk also gave him an easy costume for the trunk-or-treat that night. so the girls got beautified and off we went! we snapped a few quick photos on the stairs on our way out. i can't believe how goofy their smiles are becoming. is it me?
the glasses really helped make their outfit complete, especially when they scrunched up their noses to keep the glasses on their cute little noses.
sienna has the perfect frown, even when forced.
oh my sienna...i've no idea where this came from. totally unprompted.
just one more scrunchy nose, cause she's so cute.
i'm sorry to report that i have no pictures of myself in costume. maybe someone reading this blog does. if so, keep it locked away and never let it out! unless you are really good at editing photos...
