The ghosts of Halloween past…
Here is Allison dressed as a low-budget fairy last year. I think I put together the costume for about $10. And that was only because she needed leggings and a sparkly long-sleeved shirt since it was cold that night. I also think this might have been the last time she let me do her hair in pigtails. *sigh*
We actually had a hand-me down chili pepper costume for Allison’s first Halloween, but when I saw this giraffe costume on Craigslist for $12, I. Had. To. Have. It. After her stay in the giraffe ward of the NICU, that creature will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Okay, so this isn’t a picture of Halloween costumes. But this is from Halloween 2008, which will forever be known as the year our basement was transformed into a BMX track while replacing ALL of the plumbing in our house. Let’s just say we weren’t really into dressing up.
2007 was the Haunted Housewarming. We were Morticia and Gomez Addams. It was probably our best party ever. Except that my back up of the photos aren’t loading, so I can’t show you the awesome costumes that people wore. Good thing I’ve been hoarding that old desktop that has the original files. See? Hoarding saves lives. Because I might shoot myself if I realized I lost several years of pictures.
Then there was 2006…. I can’t actually believe that I am posting this. I think you can figure out what we were dressed as. This was obviously before I became the conservatively modest mom that I am today. Thank God my mother doesn’t read this blog.
That’s as far back as my pictures go, folks. Probably for the best. Because the first Halloween party was a real horror. I left my costume til the last-minute and it ended up being a trashy train wreck. Good times.
