Happy Halloween!

It took Avery about an hour this morning until she asked where her candy was. Candy, what candy? (As I was hiding the kit kat in my hand.) Poor thing did all the hard work last night and here I was reaping the benefits. But this girl doesn't hold her sugar well, so I traded the goods for a chance to watch her favorite movie.
Avery changed her mind a few times of what she wanted to be for Halloween. First, it was Ariel then Strawberry Shortcake, until finally she settled on a witch. My favorite was when I handed her a glittery broom and she replied so excited--"Oh, goody! So I can clean like a witch!"
Quincey fit the part of Minnie Mouse perfectly, posing and prancing around.
Meet Cliff & Gladys:
I woke up in an ornery mood on Halloween so my outfit was quite fitting. And if I didn't already feel not very cute at the moment... why not make it worse and be an old fart named Cliff with a comb-over and mustache? Good thing I have my saucy wife named Gladys to lift my spirits! Collin played the part the whole night. We were laughing so hard... and I continue to laugh every time I see these pictures.
It's just not right.
Oh my.

Hope you're having a spooky weekend! xo

You guys look great. Collin is so funny. As we say in MA, he's a riot.

OMG I have tears from laughing so much . Collin has Gladys to a "T", how long did he have to practice being "her"? I think we all have/had an Aunty Glad.
You all look divine and Quincey is so adorable as Minnie and so too Avery as the witch.
Happy Halloween!

These pictures are priceless! Thanks for sharing.

krazgrl said...

Oh my gosh, I'm CRACKING up!! Lizzy you beautiful thing it's quite amazing how you can pull off frumpy ol Cliff. The baby bump worked perfectly for those pants. Who knew Collin had such high cheek bones but such skinny little ankles. LOL Q wearing those high heels is soo funny. And I really think you should give Avery just a couple pieces of candy. ;o) TFS always look forward to your yearly halloween costumes. What's next year? Three blind mice? I have some ubber awesome costumes that took first place at many a halloween party.

Libby said...

The red wig and the gray combover make those outfits! Hilarious. Glad those get-ups didn't scare your adorable girls!

Marisa said...

The best part of the family pic is Collin's skinny ankle sticking out of that dress!

Corinne said...

I am so sorry, but I have a crush on your husband.

Jane said...

Tiffany said...

Oh my gosh I am dying over Collin's costume. I cracked up this INSTANT I saw it. Heeeeee.

So glad you had a wonderful time trick or treating. Your munchkins looked so cute. And so do you, even if you were a little hornery ;).

ninasays said...

This is hilarious! Seriously, the idea of "switching" might not be that new, BUT your realisation absolutely hits it out of the park! Just great!! :D Best wishes!!

Elizabeth said...

Oh my! Gladys is hilarious! I wish my hubs could pull that off - instead we were stuck with a spooky skeleton-man-thing.

cindy said...

OMG! So hilarious, I actually have laughing tears. Thanks for sharing!!

rkokes said...

MrsPaperRose said...

Holy moly! Cliff and Gladys... had me laughing so hard I was crying! The girls are adorable... I was Minnie as a child and loved it!

Kim Hartmann said...

OMG!! when i saw the family pic, i busted up laughing at work so loud! how awesome. I sooo want to hang out sometime with you and your husband! what a riot!

Adelina said...

Hysterical!! And the kids were cuties!! We have the same candy issue with our five year old and this year our pediatrician told us about the "switch witch". The Switch Witch comes the night of Halloween after you've gone trick or treating and switches your candy for a toy!! So we've got her convinced that was a better deal. You should try it, it worked great this year!!

Keshet said...

Oh Lordy, these are FUNNY!

Jennifer DeWolfe said...

Your Girls look adorable! How can you not want to pinch those cheeks all the time?!

Ms. Glady's is too hillarious!

Oh My Gosh Lizzy!!! I laughed my head off when I saw the pic of you and Collin. I so needed a laugh today. Thanks! The girls are as precious as ever. Love from SoCal.

Kim Woods said...

I've always thought you were so darling but paired with that husband of yours...just too much! I befriended him on facebook and I laugh outloud...literally LOL at every single one of his posts. It is so nice to just have a little giggle whenever I pop on FB to see what's up. I know he must keep you giggling and giggling and giggling. That is Bliss!
