Pumpkin puppy and other Halloween goodness.

I'm just going to go on record here saying that your mid-twenties must be the most difficult time to dress for Halloween (first world problems, right?). College is all about throwing on a skirt and a furry pair of ears and calling yourself a sexy "insert-random-creature-here. And once you have a little one, no one cares about your costume as long as your little bundle is dressed as an adorable little pumpkin or  princess, right? But, OH, your mid-twenties - you're expected to be witty and original and current. I mean, it's kinda of a lot of pressure.

This year, after careful thought, I came up with a costume for us that was both extremely hilarious (my horn? I'm tooting it here) AND required no purchases whatsoever (cha-ching!). Yes, the sweater, earrings and velvet pants all came out of my closet, and yes, I honestly do wear them. But never together. Never.

So, my friends, BEHOLD: Us, as the "awkward family photo". It's okay if you want to print your own copy to hang above your mantle. I totally wouldn't blame you.

And because the above photos are too much creepy for one post, I leave you with the more adorable half of our family Halloween. Just look at those squeezable faces!
