What we were for Halloween

I would have put this up sooner, but my online time has been devoted to The Great Cloth Diaper Hunt. If I were any kind of a good friend, I would not mention it, because it will suck.your.time. If you need proof, consider the fact that I'm putting up Halloween costume pictures up four days after the event. :-P Anyways, on to the pictures!

Some very good friends of ours got married in the summer in Pennsylvania. They wanted a reception for all the Oklahoma friends who couldn't make it, so they threw an event on Saturday and called it a Hallowedding party. All the guests showed up in costume, of course! So what did we wear?

Baby D's real-life name is Oscar. I don't know why I don't just call him by his real name here; it's not like it's a big secret or anything! I guess I just like calling him Baby D. Why does this even matter right now?

Because Adam and I dressed up as the award-winning Actor and Actress who won an Oscar for Best Performance this year. :-D

That is not the best picture of me. If I were a real celebrity, that would land on Star magazine for sure. Maybe if if I put up a goofy picture of Oscar, you won't notice so much...

I took Baby D's costume off because he was starting to get hot. Speaking of hot, this is the most metro you will ever see my husband:

Would you believe all three of our costumes cost about $10 total? Adam and I pulled most of our getup from stuff we already had, and Baby D's costume was cheap to sew because he only needed half a yard of fabric.

So what did we do on the real Halloween night? My husband went out and bought two giant bags of candy because he was certain that we would be inundated with trick-or-treaters. And then we just kind of chilled around the house.  Unfortunately, nobody showed up, so we're still eating candy around here! No guarantees that I'll fit into that costume next Halloween!


  1. haha, yeah we have bought candy every year and no one seems to go trick or treating in apartment complexes. :( Though we did get 3 true trick or treaters, Kayla, and we begged the neighbor's kids to come over when they returned from neighborhood trick-or-treating. FINALLY! lol, but we'll pretty much be eating candy till next year or until the next dress size up anyway. :P

  2. What a cute idea for Oscar's costume! I love it.

  3. Oh, my goodness!!! That is the funniest costume I have ever seen!!!!
