This year I wasn’t planning on doing anything extravagant with our costumes.Â You remember last year’s costumes? Well, this year I had no such motivation.Â However, I had an idea last minute and went with it.
This costume is a little more…shall we say…revealing…than costumes I’m used to, but I couldn’t resist:
I don’t know how you’ll react, but this costume has been enough to freak me and Dallas out.Â Talk about scary!
With that costume as inspiration, we turned into a skeleton family.
I’m mad Caroline is blurry.Â Turns out Brooke doesn’t have a black shirt, and I didn’t want to buy one.Â Luckily, someone at the party happened to have a skeleton shirt just Brooke’s size and they let us borrow it.Â How nice!
We met up with our friends, the Fraziers, and trick-or-treated with them at the mall.Â It was crowded, but we preferred that over getting rained on!
Check out the Fraziers’ costumes:
These next pictures show our annual Halloween party with my Mom’s side of the family.Â This is mostly for my parents’ benefit as they were not there to see the costumes since they were attending the First Annual Glen Thomas Family Reunion in Omaha, Nebraska.Â Some of us didn’t like the idea of a fourteen-hour car drive merely to visit our siblings whom we never see, so we didn’t attend.
While I was taking pictures of the costumes, someone said, “You should take pictures of the food!Â That’s what your Mom will really be sad she missed!”
There was tons of food and this dinner was deemed by all as the most successful potluck we’ve had to date.Â So, Mom and Dad, was the visit to Omaha worth missing this?
