Happy Halloween

This Halloween we were thinking scary. Not cute. Travis didn’t want Annabelle to be the typical “Piglet” or “Ballerina.” No ma'am, scary was our goal. 

Since August, Danielle has offered to babysit Annabelle for one of our weekly dates. However, the condition for October’s date included Annabelle being “Uncle Fester” from the Addam’s Family! Annabelle’s bald head and perfectly round face would make for an unforgettable baby fester. However, Mom “conveniently” forgot to bring her long, black wig so I could be Morticia Addams. Needless to say, her ploy to force a cute costume didn’t work. 
However, I must say Annabelle is THE CUTEST  baby skeleton I have ever seen!

Our baby skeleton last year! The nurses dressed her up then, but since we couldn't find an official baby skeleton onesie, Travis painted our glow-in-the-dark costumes himself! 

Our original plan was to be the "karate kid skeletons," who wear white ski masks. But... our white-tights idea didn't work. Although, it made Annabelle look like a little baby robber! Hilarious!

Annabelle was scared of us at first! Luckily, after some sweet talk she realized it was us:)

Now that is one creepy Momma!

Still our baby girl:)

Danielle & Alyssa as "gangstas"

The Clown Family: Tyson, Amber, & Kelti

Cameron (Travis' little brother) was a Transformer! He would get down until our candy-giver looked really confused, then transform! It was seriously creative:)

Trick-or-Treat! The guy on the left is a real person handing out candy!

Halloween was a blast this year! We met up with Danielle & Alyssa; then headed over to the Tolman’s to Trick-or-Treat. Obviously, Annabelle doesn’t get the concept, but she sure comes in handy for getting candy! After an overload of sugar, we did a glow-in-the-dark “skeleton dance” in the basement for the crew. It looked like our "bones" were floating! Annabelle looked just adorable dancing around too.
