Happy Halloween!

I was really excited for Blake's Halloween costume this year. I came up with it all on my own AND it was super easy to create!

Unfortunately, the stickers that were supposed to stick so well to Blake's shirt didn't stick well at all. And when I tried to secure them with tape, it made them even more enticing to mess with.

Even more unfortunate is the fact that I didn't get any pictures of Blake in his costume (or any of me in mine) during our ward "Harvest Party", which is the only time we will be wearing our costumes*. So for the sake of memories, I recreated Blake's costume. And I digitally recreated mine.

 You can be impressed with my MS paint skills.

Can you figure out what we are? (Check the comments for the answer!)

*You may be wondering why we only wore our costumes to our ward Halloween Party Harvest Party and not to go trick-or-treating. It's because we aren't going trick-or-treating. There are several reasons for this and all of them do a great job of taking the wind out of Halloween's sails:

1- Blake is 19 months old and while I'm sure he'd love to get a bag full of candy, as the mother of this 19 month old I am not keen on him consuming a bag full of candy.

2- If Blake isn't going to eat the candy then guess who will: me. As evidenced by the picture of me in this post, the last thing I need is a bag full of candy.

3- If we knew a lot of our neighbors or knew a group of people who were going trick-or-treating then I'd probably be up for tagging along. But we don't. So we aren't.

4- Blake won't remember hanging out at home on his second Halloween, so I don't feel too bad about not going.

Did you figure it out? Blake was a chick magnet and I was a ceiling fan...get it? Ok, so Halloween costumes that you have to explain aren't as much fun as I'd thought they'd be.

I loved them! Sorry the stickers didn't work out, especially since we pulled our hair out trying to find them! Oh well!!! Did people at the Halloween party...I mean Harvest party get your costumes???
