Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh


 cleopatra and a power ranger. store-bought and lovin' it.


our very last-minute costumes inspired by rubi and stanton's bon voyage party, except everyone kept calling us detectives all night. but who cares because jamie as a snooty frenchman smoking half of a pen was THE BEST. i was dying. i begged him to keep the mustache. (p.s. the sharps do not endorse smoking cigarettes, only pens.)

i actually had a brilliant costume idea for halloween but basically just thought about it for two months and then went to DI three days before halloween and couldn't find what i needed so i gave up. pretty sure i am the anti-blogger.
i do enjoy halloween. watching my sister police the neighborhood rascal who empties all the candy buckets in his bag was the icing on the cake.
 i leave you with the cutest gnome you ever did see.

We love our Halloween tradition with the sharps. Quote of the night: how did we come from the same womb?

I get more excited for a blog update from you than anyone else, I think. Pearl is sooooooooooooo pretty. Does it scare you to put makeup on her because you can almost imagine her as a teenager. She'll be breaking hearts in no time. I bet Milo loved being a Power Ranger and played the part perfectly. Is that show still on? Did you used to pretend to be the pink one when you were little?

Um, you and Jamie are hilarious. These photos! The faces! You kill me.

I can't even believe the gnome. Is that Emily's Calvin? It's adorable and hilarious at the same time.

Ha ha! I love it! You guys are so great. :)

i'm with shalynna. i get so excited for abby updates!

jamie's mustache is... well... wow. josh grew his facial hair out a bit once and when he shaved he left the stache. and it was the grossest. not that jamie's gross... oh, nevermind.

your kids are cute! and so are you!

Sarah said...

Did Emily say that? Or you, Abby? Or one of the precocious children? I'm guessing it was Emily because you were a smoker for Halloween.

Calvin the gnome is so cute! Did Emily make that?

I love, love these pictures! Pearl and Milo are playing their part well-so cute! You and Jamie, well - you are mah-velous! I laughed and laughed. Jamie with the 'stash kills me. Calvin is the cutest thing ever!! Love his costume. I think Emily probably said the comment, too. Ha!

abby said...

mom and sarah- i think what you are saying is that emily is too righteous to smoke a pen but abby is not. and maybe you are correct, except i wore the costume for a halloween party so she never saw it. i said it to emily when she was confronting the neighborhood menace. i was ready to run and hide because i hate confrontation!

whimsy said...

hahah this is great, love the costumes! and that gnome is to die for!

we suck. i don't think we did one thing halloweeny. in fact last night in irritation of not finding a parking spot at our apartment i cursed halloween and it's parties that i wasn't attending.

kate said...

power rangers are still a thing???

(you guys look great.)

Ashley Seil Smith said...

Hahaha, I love this - I am going to make sure Nate sees this so that he can appreciate Jamie's look as well. You totally look like you should have been at the party, too. You should just move here now.

Milo and Pearl are just so so adorable.

Blair said...

First of all, I can't even begin to describe the 6th grade obsession I once had with Power Rangers. Also, Pearl's dimples! Ahhh! You guys are adorable. The Sharps totally rock.

MaryPosa said...

Blair = me. again. sorry.

abby said...

yes power rangers are still a thing! except now they are samurai. does anyone remember when the pink ranger went on to star on Felicity? that was a shocker.

angela hardison said...

we were lame this halloween. actually every halloween. great costumes though! gnomes are the cutest. my twin nieces were little garden gnomes too and it was so darling.

that pearl is so pretty.

rubi said...

your kids are adorable and you know i LOVE your costumes!!! and a pen cigarette. hahaha awesome. learning that power rangers still exist just totally made my day.

kelly said...

you and jamie are sexy without even baring your midriffs. amazing;) although the photo doesn't show your midriffs, maybe jamie has a half shirt on?

I think sometime in the next year or so I am going to CHOP all my hair off. I have to do it at least once. You are looking seriously great and you should wear red lipstick often.
go go power rangers.
