Incredible Costumes

So a couple of years ago, when the wee man first arrived, we opted for a complete family costume. With the little guy bearing a striking resemblance to Jack-Jack (and his various attacks), we opted for the Incredibles. With a trip to the Fabricland, some long underwear and fabric dye, our costumes came together.

Mariah & Family

Seems we're in famous company. Maybe they'll come by tonight for some tricks or treats.

Spirits of the Season

The spirits of the season, in time they are upon us,
ghouls and goblins with them, leak a greenish puss.

The grave stones creak and crumble, 
as the ground shudders with a rumble.

The skeletons beneath, unhappy with their lot,
their arms thrust forth, steaming and to the touch quite hot. 

The spiders having spun their webs in hopes of larger prey,
we are lucky if we pass them and survive another day.

Still no sighted sign of slithy toads,
though travel be unwise upon these very roads.

Ghastly cries of wailing banshees fill the evening air,
others move no longer, their oozing corpses line the stair.

Thick mists envelop us, venture forth we wouldn't dare,
for out there in darkness lies some other dank nightmare.

Gettin ready

He already fully grasps the concept of treats. Tricks is also considered just another word for treats.

Face Grown

I've taken the plunge. This year I've donated my upper lip in support of men's health. That's right kids, I'm doing Movember.

So please be generous, donate and watch my Mo grow.
