Photoblog Phriday - Phinally!

I can't wait until the year that I can convince my children to all three dress in one collective theme for Halloween. This year I had two Goth children and one Disney pixie.



I think maybe the dark-sided ones had an affect on the pixie....



But here she is after some exorcising Photoshopping.


She had glitter around her eyes, but eventually she scratched at it and messed with it so much that she looked like LeperBell instead of TinkerBell.



Now, I must say that even though Kady was awful goshdarn cute and adorable, LOOK AT WHAT I DID TO MY OTHER TWO KIDS! I have to admit, I'm pretty proud of those getups.




I woke the kids up 45 minutes early Halloween morning that that sufficient makeup-ing could be done. I think losing nearly an hour of sleep was worth it to them because everyone thought they looked awesome. One teacher called Sam "Tommy Lee" all day. His teacher said she'd been calling people into her room all day to check him out. And man, did he play the part. He scowled at everyone and slouched like a punk with serious attitude.

When we went to the nursing home to see Nana, the residents were lined up all the way down the hall to hand out candy. One old man grabbed Sam by the arm and said, "Boy, you don't wear earrings all the time, do you?" Sam shook his head quickly and said, "No sir!" Sam liked his outfit so much, though, that his father felt compelled to reiterate many times the fact that in the event he would ever come home with a piercing of any kind it would promptly be pulled out. Violently.



Abby looked wicked hateful in that picture, but she's entirely too happy of a kid to scowl around all day like her brother did. Sam's a happy kid, too, but he's much more of an actor than she is. She's also so much like I was when I was a kid - she checked with the office on Monday to make sure she could wear her nose ring and wouldn't get in trouble for it.


Does she not look like she could bite the head off of a live bat and then groan and complain about how unfair living and breathing is?

The kids all look fantastic. But let me get this straight. Their school lets them dress up for Halloween?!? Our school sucks so bad. They won’t let the kids wear costumes anymore.

Anyway, you did a great job on the outfits. You should be proud.

GREAT JOB Kristin! The kids look great! Abby and Sam look sooo serious! I almost thought it wasn't them because they are always smiling!

Wow! That is OH SO CREATIVE! You win the best Mom prize. I let my kid wear a two-year-old pepperoni pizza slice. All I had to do was tie the sides. And the other one was a Wal*Mart ninja. I was exhausted from removing the hanger.

Our school won't let them wear costumes, either. That ended in 1999. Now we can only have a Fall Festival, no mention of Halloween.

Absolutely adorable. There's some message there with the scowling older ones in black and bright Tinkerbell in front. My gosh, Abby looks like you -- even in her Goth costume.

They look so darn cute! Abby is just the spittin image of you! I wish one of mine looked like me....

Well at least Abby could get a job at Starbucks if money gets tight! With those looks I'm sure she would be getting A LOT of tips.

Nice job!

Amazing how much Abby and my daughter look alike. Mine was Wednesday Addams for Halloween, so the costumes were almost identical. Adorable.
