Happy Halloween, Pardner'

Happy Halloween, Blog World!

We are gearing up for a festive 31st of October. Costumes are pressed and waiting eagerly in closets. Ingredients are out on the counter for spicy Frito Pie (despite the forecast of a stuffy 82 degrees here today). Pumpkins are on the table, waiting an appointment with my trusty plastic saw (Rosie the Jack-o-Lantern basically turned into mush over night Wednesday and had to be tossed out into the trash. I am not exaggerating when I say I almost cried.). We are ready for Halloween!

In honor of the holidays, let's visit some costumes of the past here at casa de phillips.

Lynley's Former Halloween Costumes:
*Hobo (age 3...and likely terribly politically incorrect these days)
*Various vinyl costumes purchased either at the local Magic Mart (pre-Wal-Mart days), Alco, or Wal-Mart.
*Charlie Chaplin (High School)

Tobe's Former Halloween Costumes:
*Soccer Player
*Zombie Soccer Player
*Injured Soccer Playe
*Soccer Player with a Third Eye (see a theme here?)

Isaac's Former Halloween Costumes:
Halloween 2005: Kid with Lots O Candy

Unimpressed Giraffe

Lion with Out-of-Control Mane

Firefighter

Evelyn's Former Costumes:

Tiny Baby Bump Under Black T-Shirt

Cutest, Girliest Dalmatian EVER

This year we are setting out for our Tricks and Treats in a Western Theme....hopefully I will have pictures up tomorrow.

Isaac is all about the begging strangers for candy and is quite excited that Halloween is finally upon us. This morning he asked when we would get to go Trick-or-Treating and I informed him we would go after supper. I then called him to the table for Breakfast. It was then that he informed me he wanted to eat supper, as opposed to breakfast, so he could go Trick or Treating.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way, kid.

Have fun tonight, everybody, and remember to stay safe!

Happy Halloween!
