This year was awesome. The weather was Texas-style fabulous. We truck or treated. We trick or treated. We ate lots o' candy. Good times.
Maya was Marie Antoinette, to start things off. Then she ditched the wig and was just fancy.
Was there any question what this guy would be?
I had no great ideas for Simon's costume, so we went with train engineer. Cheap & cheerful, plus it made Mason happy.
Chris was the Burger King, which won him first prize in his work costume contest. I believe there was also a trip to Burger King for lunch and (for some reason?) some running down the side of the highway, all caught on tape. Don't ask me.
I had a Cinderella costume ready to go, but didn't like how it looked at the last minute and went with my old standby Snow White instead. It made me look less pregnant, and I was still trying to conceal that fact, although look at the round face...
Officially my favorite people in the universe.
Seriously, have you ever seen a cuter train engineer?!
I'm bound and determined that we do a family theme next year. Wizard of Oz? The Peanuts Gang? Scooby Doo & Friends? Not sure yet. All I know is that if I can get Maya on board, I can make it happen. And I've got 11 months to figure it out, and another cast member on the way. Cottam costumes, party of 6!
