Halloween 2009

The kids have been planning their Halloween costumes for weeks now. In a dramatic departure from previous years, Claire branched out from her usual princess attire. Well, so far as she could still wear make-up, a long pretty dress and some sort of head gear. She settled on a bride.

And her groom?

A "nice" pirate.

"Oh, I am so pretty and sweet. And I know it, too."

Look at that "piratey face." Are you scared?
Shawn worked very hard to get Ben to say, "Arrrrr, give me all your candy" instead of what he and his sister had been practicing: "trick or treat, smell my feet. Give me something good to eat. If you don't, I don't care. 'Cause I can see your underwear!"
It was a tough call.

Most of the time, they just settled on, "trick or treat!"
Probably a good idea.
The innocent bride and the tough pirate.

This last one cracks me up.
I told him to act like a Pirate, and this is what I got.
And now we're off to brush our teeth.

Aww, how cute are they?!

Luke went as Wolverine, and we thought he nailed it. However, several people at Rachel's house thought he was Elvis. Really?! Dosen was just an OU football player. He, surprisingly, wanted no flair.

So cute!!! I did see your pirate before I posted our picks. He would have fit in perfect with our crew. Also, loved Claire's girly party. That is so far from what goes on around here. I love it though!!
