Halloween 2008

This year for Halloween, we had a slightly melancholy panda (clearly contemplating the recent spike in bamboo prices).

A train. (And I take very little credit for the fabulous costume. This was all Aunt Kathy's creative genius.)

A little German miss, wearing the dirndl I wore when I was her age.

And a teenager (not pictured) who has decided he's too old for the dress up scene and would rather play computer games at a friend's house than make the rounds with his family. Sigh.

I think of all the kids, Nora probably had the most fun. The Halloween concept combines two of her most favorite things in the world: dressing up

and candy.

What's not to love about that?

Too cute! I can't believe how big Nora is getting. Thanks for the update. I've been suffering from Mental Tesserae withdrawl...

Nora is adorable! As is your melancholy panda and the stunning train.

Great costumes. Looks like a good candy haul, too!

It's sad when the kids start getting to old for certain traditions.

I love all the costumes! I, sadly, forgot to take pictures this year of my kids.

Yowsahs, that train is breath taking. I love seeing Nora sitting on the table with her haul.

I miss your blog! It is one of my favorites, but there haven't been any updates in a very long time.
