Happy (day after) Halloween! Last year, we dressed up as Elliot and Gertie from E.T. which was awesome, but definitely landed in the cute column instead of the scary column. So this year we decided to make up for it a little bit…



We both went as scary skeletons and built an entire cemetery in our front yard (complete with political pumpkin)! I tend to gravitate toward costumes that involve some interesting hair and/or makeup. It’s probably because they give me a real life, 3-D canvas to work with instead of just a sheet of paper.


I wanted to sit in the cemetery (see below) and scare the teenagers who came by, but we mostly got little kids so I tried not to be TOO spooky.


We also hosted a zombie apocalypse themed scavenger hunt/party over the weekend, but didn’t get many photos. It’s too bad because we had some great costumes! Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde from Zootopia, Frankenstein and his Bride, Vacationers, Buffy as Little Red Riding Hood, a Jackelope, The Most Interesting Man in the World…the list goes on!

What did you do for Halloween this year?
