... to the question, "What do you want to be for Halloween?"
Calder: A ghost.
Lake: Juni. (Juniper. Lake's best friend.) He decided this a couple months before Halloween. I was surprised that Lake, at the age of 3, thought of this sort of costume. It wasn't until I was in 7th grade that a classmate dressed up as someone we knew, our English teacher Ms. Bray, for Halloween.
Calder's costume came together a few hours before Trick-or-Treating began. If you ever need a ghost costume, this one's pretty good.
What a funny look on Lake's face. He's totally messing with me. Such a straight face for the camera. Or maybe he's in character? Once we got out and started ringing doorbells he completely lit up and loved the whole deal. Those who know Juni - her parents included - were amazed at the resemblance. (Not that they don't already look a lot alike!)
Jeff and I dressed up a bit too... grabbing from limited, but silly, resources. And I know everyone's enjoying a little sweet now and then, these days following a fun night of treat gathering.
