Halloween is a much loved holiday around our house. We get dressed up every year & this year was no exception! Wanting to find a couples costume, we settled on Sookie Stackhouse and Bill Compton from True Blood, one of our guilty pleasures.
It was hard to get my husbands very curly hair to lay straight - he drew the line when I pulled out my CHI straightener and almost singed off a chunk of curls :) I think it ended up turning out great! I loved being Sookie!
We went to a pretty wild party in a warehouse on the south side of town. Tons of people and one bathroom stall - definitely not up to building code, I can assure you!
The kiddos went trick-or-treating on Clark St. on Saturday & came home with quite the loot! On Sunday, A & I took Derby to a doggie Halloween event on Armitage Ave, home of lots of little boutiques that were handing out candy as well. It was packed! I am glad A decided to put on his Mario costume again - I loved seeing the kids trick-or-treat city style. Cynthia Rowley, Intermix, Benetton and American Apparel were just a few "houses" we stopped at for treats :)
I didn't have a costume for Derby. I did, however, happen to clean out the kids dressers this weekend & threw a too-small Cubs shirt in the donate pile. Not wanting to be the only dog at the doggie party sans costume, Derby became a Cubs relief pitcher for Halloween ;)
Then Daddy & Yoshi met up with us :)
It was such a great weekend! We had a family photo taken on Sunday at the party. It was from an instant camera, so I will scan it in and share it with you this week. It is one of my favorite pictures of our family!!
Did you dress up for Halloween? Who/what were you??
