"this is halloween, this is halloween..."

This year Landon discovered The Nightmare Before Christmas and watched it constantly all month. The songs are amazing yes, but impossible to get out of your head. After some debate this year Landon was Syndrome from The Incredibles.












I finished his shiny black unitard early in the month and decided to make myself a costume. The pattern size is NEVER right, so my Alice in Wonderland dress ended up 12 sizes too large. I tried to take it in but it ended up just looking like crap so I only wore it once. Sam's costume never came to fruition, maybe another year. We went to a couple costume parties, here is our ward Trunk-or-Treat. Landon played all the games and I got some inspiration for next year's costume for Sam...
Our friends, the Shelleys also had a costume party so I pulled out one of last years oldies and found myself dying yellow tights for the 2nd year in a row. The night before Landon's school party he insisted on being a robot. Soooooo a cereal box, a jug of milk and a little tin foil later we have this treasure... If he were any older and he would have been beaten up for sure. Sam took Landon trick-or-treating Sunday night in the frigid weather, and he came back with the best loot ever!

REAL sized candy bars??? Jackpot. Also, did that creepy ronald mcdonald (behind landon when he is eating a doughnut) just finish devouring a bunch of little kids? It looks like he has blood dripping from his mouth.

Ok, two things:

1) why are EARTH does he have multiple full sized candy bars?! My kids got only one fun sized Snickers between the both of them (and of course I stole it).

2) I really hope that the inspiration for Sam's costume came from that scary Ronald McDonald. Maybe he could be the Hamburglar and Landon could be Grimace?

I just love your blog. Amy you are the "incredable" woman! You looked just like Alice (I had to wear a wig). Sam's is awsome and of course Landon's was just the perfect costume. No wig either!
I look forward to next year!terrysh
