Dude. I love Halloween. Always have. Hopefully always will.
Deven was psyched for weeks about getting to wear his costume and knock on doors and get candy. Even though he went trick or treating last year, he really didn’t remember any of it. He knew all about this trick or treating stuff from Yo! Gabba Gabba.
You wouldn’t know it from the picture, but he was really excited, and kept nagging me to hurry up! so we could go get candy!
Archer, on the other hand, didn’t know what to think off all this mess. He wasn’t feeling great from the four shots he had to get that morning. By the way, this is why I scheduled my kids appointment on Halloween: The entire Pediatrics department dressed like Smurfs. His doctor got to be Gargamel because he is the tallest person on staff. Wonderful.
It took me a while to come up with a good costume idea. I looked through the inventory of women’s costumes and I was so very disappointed. I’m a mom, and I’m going to be taking my kid trick or treating. I don’t want to be dressed like a Pirate whore. Or skanky Alice. Or a slutty Lucille Ball. Or a whore zombie Amy Winehouse. So, at the last minute, I had a break through. This what I came up with:
A greaser. I couldn’t afford a nice wig. I did my best. At the end of the day, I made some people laugh, which is what Halloween is all about, you know, when you’re not drenching yourself in fake blood and making people piss themselves.
What you actually look like:
I don’t have any still pictures of it, but Vance actually dressed up this year! I bought him a spider costume. It was hilarious. I have it on video, and maybe some day when I have the patience, I will upload it. I have to warn you though, he was capturing me when I wasn’t aware of what was going on. I don’t even know what you’ll see or hear.
Halloween this year was a blast. It always is. So, we can’t afford to go all out with decorations, and our all but nonexistent social lives mean we can only talk about all of the awesome parties we would rock in our very well-thought out costumes, but whatever. We take what we’ve got, and even if we spend an hour getting ready to walk around the neighborhood in the dark, we make Halloween the best holiday of the year.
