If I haven’t mentioned it before, I’ll say it now, our neighborhood is amazing! Our neighbors are tons of fun and there’s always a laugh to be had. Halloween is a classic example. Our across the street neighbors absolutely love this holiday and have a big party every year. They “require” costumes and will kindly dress you in something they have on hand if you don’t come in your own costume. B and I had some great ideas of costumes for this year, but alas, time got away from us and we were left scrambling at the last minute. Enter the pros of having a
pack rat sentimental parent… um, junior high dance team uniform, sounds perfect. A quick raid of an 8 year old’s bow collection, and I was ready to go. B went with a good (and easy) standby, Carl Spackler from Caddyshack.
At some point in the evening, B found a stuffed toy that he passed off as a gopher.
Jake won the costume contest and was VERY excited about the victory–I’m pretty sure he regretted this maneuver in the morning- or maybe the 4 toe touches he did that I didn’t manage to capture in pics. In case you’re wondering, no, there wasn’t a trampoline under him.
And here I thought I was the “cheerleader.”
Hope you had a fun and happy Halloween!
