All Hallow's Eve Day

I can hardly type because my hands are suffering from spray-paint-button-itis. I used a whole can of red on McKay's Lego costume. Today, my wrist-tendons are still so sore it hurts to do everything. I can't hold a pencil to grade papers (wahoo!). I made my husband trim a chipped nail because I couldn't squeeze the clippers myself. You want to know the worst part? My house is filled with candy and chocolate and it's all sealed up tightly in these annoying little wrappers!

But enough about me and my sorry disability. Let's take a look at my children and the costumes for which I sacrificed my ability to brush my own teeth.

McKay embodies his love for Lego



Doctor Gabie (of course)



Nora the Good Witch

Nora is so grown up! Do I say that every time you post a photo? I really must see her again so I can stop thinking of her as a little baby. All of them are adorable. I especially love Gabie's expression!

BTW, I'm glad we can still be friends after that little incident yesterday.

Fabulous costumes! And of course, adorable children!

Oooo, I'm going to have to steal your lego idea. My son spends every waking moment building with his legos.

That is the BEST costume! My girlfriend and I went as a pair of dice one year, but I painted my own costume.

You're a nice mom :)

Great costumes.

That Nora looks like the very best sort of witch to have around.

Try chewing your candy in the wrapper; you can always spit it out later.

Wow! Amazing. I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy.

Wonderful costumes . . . the lego costume was an inspiration. I guess I see why your hands hurt so bad. But that was dang good, sister!

I made my son almost that exact Lego costume when he was in kindergarten! It was even red. We added a Lego hat.
