Halloween Hoopla

by Chris on October 31, 2011

Sugar coma? Walking for miles from house to house? Entertaining a bunch of kids with pizza and candy? Whatever it was, it made me tired. But how could I go without showing you this?

girl bride costume

As my husband says, “Enjoy that dress now ‘cause you won’t wear another one for 30 years.” But she sho’ is cute, no? My son? Uhhh….he’s uhhh…

morph suit

It’s a Morph suit. It was expensive (great), and it was sold out all over town (nice). According to my students, I was a little clueless for not knowing about them. What do I know?

Oh. I know what I know. I’m going to eat every single one of these until I puke. Or until my son catches me—whichever comes first.

peanut butter cups 

I hope you had a fun-filled and safe Halloween!

I had actually told my son I was going to Halloween City and he said he didn’t need anything. When I got home he said he wanted a morph suit.. I could have killed him. My post about his costume will be up tomorrow morning…

Love it! My 19 month old was DJ Lance from Yo Gabba Gabba, his favorite show, and my least favorite show:)

That just reminds me of how glad I am that we’re past those cartoons! :)

We had a group of four teenagers at our Walmart today wearing those! I had NO CLUE what they were! But my kids thought they were great and laughed when the boys scared a different group of kids. I’m sure they would’ve been singing a different tune if it had been THEM that the boys had jumped out at! ;) I’m glad to know what they’re actually called, so thanks!

Oh my word! Darling Halloween pictures! We also tell our kids that they can’t get married until they are 30! I have never seen a Morph suit. I must live under a rock! HA HA! My son would love it though!

Your daughter is darling, your son is scary, and your candy looks delicious!

Chris November 1, 2011 at 10:39 pm

Ha! Thank you, Susan. That pretty much covers it, eh? :)

Sweet! I have left-over Reese’s too. Where shall I send them? (I love them…but better your butt, than mine.)

I LOVE that morph suit! I can just imagine how cool your son felt in that! And what a beautiful little bride … that is such fun costume for little girls. I have had a few myself throughout the years! (I always eat more of my kids’ candy than they do!)

Chris November 1, 2011 at 10:37 pm

Thank you, Polly Dove!

Your kids look great! Love that morph suit! My son actually offers me his peanut butter cups, because he knows I love them. They don’t love me, though – it was a little rough buttoning the jeans this morning. ;-)

Chris November 1, 2011 at 10:37 pm

PB cups…my downfall. Those and doughnuts. And homemade bread. I have a long list. :)

Oh what fun Halloween pictures! Jackson looks really scarry! Yikes…glad I didn’t see a costume like his when I was a kid. Olivia looks absolutely F A B…I was a bride at Halloween when I was her age. It is about the only costume I wore that I remember vividly. Good memories for Olivia and Jackson. I spent Halloween @ Hank & Don’s with 10 friends, no left over candy for me. Love Mom

Thanks for sharing the family pics, Chris. The kids are adorable as ever. My grandson turns 14 this month and I have a feeling he won’t be into halloween next year as this year took some convincing to participate in his school’s festivities. Oh well, I’ll take what I can get.

Your daughter is adorable in this dress! What a precious moment.

This is adorable! It made me laugh- my girls went all out and my oldest boy was a….criminal!
His costume looked similar to your fella’s!
Have a great weekend!

Could your girl be any prettier?!?!?! You know she’s going to be wearing a real wedding dress before you know it!! (I’m not insinuating she’ll be a child bride…just that time flies!) ;)

Do you remember where you bought the wedding costume from? Thanks so much!

Chris October 6, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Hi Sara, I found it at Burlington Coat Factory. They always have lots of communion dresses, and it was only @ $25.00! Good luck!
