All Hallow's eve

So it begins. First, the boys get ready:

Secondborn has decided to be Squirtle this year:

And since he was a Squirtle, he decided that he definitely needed to have a water gun. I figured, "What could possibly go wrong?" soooo...

Firstborn, on the other hand, had elected to be a Transformer. Here, sans boy, is his costume:
The costume was designed and built by his grandfather, with help and input from Firstborn.

Here, sans costume, is the boy:

Here he is in robot mode, wearing the costume:

And, of course, the tank transforms:

Finally, here they are together:

The Beautiful Wife and I decided to be superheroes this year, so here we are:

Happy Hallowe'en, everybody. Hope you all had as much fun as our kids did.


  1. The Transformer is very creative. I still don't know how my kids looked, daughter was supposed to send me a picture. I went as a bartender and took it to the next level by actually being one last night.


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
