This is Halloween

Throwback Thursday, Halloween Edition.

I didn’t dig deep into the archives for this week’s Halloween themed Throwback Thursday. My pre-digital pictures aren’t as organized as I’d like and there are only so many of me dressed in my go-to “baby” costume floating around.

Mt Pleasant, SC
It’s Thirteen’s first Halloween. He’s rocking the Tigger suit and I’m rocking my standard horrible “I live in the south and my hair doesn’t do anything” ponytail.  I think we only went trick or treating and Ray and Jen’s apartment.

It’s Trick or Treat in Harbortown. 13 went as Mickey Mouse. I had a terrible haircut. You’ll see this costume show up again in a few years.

Simba at Zoo Boo! Thankfully my hair and makeup is better.

Thirteen had several years where Halloween just wasn’t his thing, with the introduction of the Burns Halloween Party it became an adult holiday. Clearly, I’m a lazy costumier. Scrubs. However, at least I’m in a costume.

Another Burns Halloween Party. This year Sarah and I were hookers. That is what happens when you don’t plan costumes and throw together what you can from things you own. Which begs the question. Why did I own red fishnets? You’ll notice that again, Heather is not dressed up.

Costumeless but still cute! I miss sunny Halloween.

It’s the return of the Mickey Mouse costume! This time Six does the honors.  Thirteen doubled up on costumed as an Alien in the neighborhood and a Cowboy at school.

Thirteen opted for an Eric Church/Kenny Chesney hybrid country music singer while Six fell down the rabbit hole as Alice in Wonderland. In my world, a repurposed running skirt and borrowed ears equals Minnie Mouse!

This year I was challenged to go to a little bigger in the costume department and Six has her heart set on joining the army of Elsa’s…but you’ll have to wait for those photos. Happy Halloween!!
