Happy Day After Halloween !!!

Okay, so I promised pictures. I have quite a few. Now, for those of you that aren't family, you might get bored after the first few. But remember, this is a link between mine and Jeff's family whom we couldn't be with for this holiday. So, here we go:

We have a friend who's a limo driver and took us all in a ride before he turned the car back in. Griffin looks ECSTATIC......doesn't he?

(Griffin -- Buzz) (Kai -- Woody) (Carolyn -- Jessie) (Jeff -- Emporer Zurg)

Griffin's costume was perfect for a Halloween outside in Flagstaff. However most of the parties we went to were INSIDE. So this is how Griffin ended up after 10 minutes of running around at our first party:
Yep.....instead of Buzz Lightyear, for most of that night he turned out to be dressed as: Super Skimpy Now isn't that WAY more scary?

This is Steve and Jenny Kempton and Ben, Emily, and Charlie Cox (some friends from school)

Tonight was our last party and I got some cool pictures of Griffin and Kai dancing in the disco light. They definitely stole the show!

Oh yes -- and I have to show you the pictures of my boys showing their candy. Kai posed for us very well standing like a true cowboy with his pumpkin bucket.
Griffin, on the other hand............ He had, of course taken off his costume the second we stepped in the door and this is how he wanted to pose with his........... Disney Princesses candy bag. I know, I know -- I'll get a lot of crap for that one from my brother Brian, but THAT'S THE BAG GRIFFIN WANTED, OKAY?!

Alright, just a few more. This is one of my favorites because Kai, first of all looks like he's cross eyed. Second, it brings back the picture in my head of him walking all the way from the car to the house, very slowly, with the bucket between his legs like this. Looking down every now and then to make sure his overflowing bucket was safe. He acted like it was soooo heavy and delicate. It was hillarious!!!

Okay, I'm done......almost. Just one more of Griffin, so tired without a nap today and probably a little sick of dressing up 4 nights in a row. And then one more of my amazing costume, a pretty good "Jessie" if I may say so myself.

To finally end this ridiculously long post, I will give a shout out to Jeff........."Thanks for dressing up with us.....even though you don't enjoy it as much as I do. Love ya!"

How cute! I'm such a stick in the mud when it comes to dressing up myself. One place I worked "required" us to dress up on Halloween. I didn't, however. (Think Michael Scott-style management) I told them I was an undercover cop and they weren't amused. But you guys look so cute. Maybe next year I'll be brave and do something as a family... maybe.

Cute, cute, cute... do you remember the time that you and I dressed up as a sandwhich (I was one half, you were the other) and then Shelly saw us and said "Umm, I'm hungry" and started chasing us? Yes, well, I had that memory the other night pop into my head. Good times on Fraser Driver, and of course the 2nd and 3rd streets...

No,I hadn't recalled that memory until you brought it up. All you had to do was say, "Shelly" and the face and flashback came streaming back.
