but nary a box of hot tamales in sight, sarah.







i feel too tired to narrate this post. but we went homemade this year and obviously milo's costume was the bomb, but also obviously he could hardly move in it. and i made pearl's hooded cape from this tutorial and felt like the bomb when it turned out so well. good thing she looked cute because she wandered into a lotttt of people's houses. also, facial hair isn't as enjoyable as i thought it would be.

we helped will (jamie's brother) and debi throw a halloween party and it was so much fun. jamie organized a "fear factor" game and had people eating live worms and pickled pigs' feet. although he took one bite of baby food (ham dinner) and was down for the count. you win some, you lose some. halloween was rad.

lindie said...

How fun!! I love that Milo looked like he could barely move (LOL) and that made it way funny!! I love the costumes. I was at my mom's for Halloween.

Oh, my goodness!! The costumes are all fantastic! Pearl is darling. Milo's costume is amazing. Was he able to breathe? You and Jamie look downright scary with those weapons. I'm glad you had a fun Halloween.

Pearl is GORGEOUS. Milo's costume is AAAmazing. You and Jamie... I feel as if there are no words to the awesomeness of it all.

Ashley Thalman said...

Oh wow! Those costumes are rad.

Sarah said...

Abby, I am so impressed! I am laughing at how immobile Milo looks and that he still agreed to wear it! What a cooperative boy. How did you hook up the lights?

Pearl's cape is perfect! And love your mustaches.

Our hot tamale count: 2

um, pearl is gorgeous! and milo certainly was a good sport. and was there any moustache-to-moustache kissing? weird. you make me [almost] want to like halloween, but i still don't.

sarah- totally thought of you with each box of hot tamales we got, also. though, i haven't counted.

Leslie said...

There is no fee for pure awesomeness! Dang I miss you guys! You're about the cutest family I know! You ALL look AWESOME! I am quite jealous... :)

Fashionably Kate said...

you guys rock.
seriously.

i love every bit of this halloween goodness.

and i know i've said this before, but your kids make me excited for my future kids someday.

MH said...

Oh my goodness, what a sport for Milo wearing that robot costume while trick-or-treating!!! All of your costumes are awesome and kudos for going handmade! P.S. Pearl's eyelash's get me every time, they are gorgeous.

Kent Kate & Afton said...

You have some skills girl!!! I was going to make Afton's costume, but lack of skills and early pregnancy sickness decided otherwise.

The robot costume is pretty sweet! If I have a boy someday I might just have to copy that idea. (just a heads up) I agree with facial hair not being very fun.

Nancy said...

I LOVE your kids costumes, seriously if you had a little stage Mama in you Pearl is model material, GAP anyone? So cute, and love that the lights on the robot actually work, very creative.

Jill said...

You're amazing abs! First of all, milo's costume was awesome and second of all, I just can't get over how beautiful pearl is! Great job on that cape too!

David and Shalynna said...

Holy moly, Pearl's eyelashes are long! (I'm jealous)

They look adorable in these costumes. You guys are very creative with coming up with all of this. (I'm jealous)

I just showed David the picture of you and Jamie as lumber jacks and he said, "Who's that?" Hahahaha.

I emailed you for your address. Email me back!
