THIS IS HALLOWEEN!

This is our favorite holiday of the year! We take it very seriously around here...no last minute costumes for us...we plan far in advance, sometimes a whole year. Each year I slave and stress over costumes! Most are homemade or pieced together from Goodwill, but every year there is one that I don't make because I would lose my mind!!!...I know, we're not normal....but we love it!....
This years theme:



Joey-Gaston, Eva-Mrs. Potts, Emree-peasant Belle, Rett-Beast,
Rye-Chip.....




Our history of Halloween counting back the years....

2007: Toy Story
So fun! How awesome is Zurg!?

2006: Wizard of OZ
Had to do it because of "Wicked"! Dorothy and the Tin Man was my first attempt at making a costume from a pattern...



2005: The Little Mermaid
I had to be Ursula because I love her and I was pregnant with Rye at the time, so I could play the "round" part extra well. And Emree made the most perfect Ariel EVER! No wig necessary!...


2004: Peter Pan
Joey was getting stopped at Disney to have photos taken with him! So hilarious...



2003: Senoritos y Senoritas
Gave birth to Rett three weeks prior...still managed to pull something together!...Our first year going to Disney for their Halloween party....

2002: Asian (couldn't find the fam pic!)
Joey used to use African Pride in his hair (pure grease) and Emree had gotten into it earlier that day....I remember her hair was like pure vaseline, even after washing it over and over again!...disgusting!...but it helped with the style!....
2001: Poynesian Family
where it all began...
