Thought I’d do a throw-back for “throwback Thursday” and a Halloween post all in one! Without further ado…..our family halloween costumes for 2013:
THE SIMPSONS!!!! For those of you wondering….”wait a minute….I thought the Sommers only had two little girls?” Well you are correct….we had to borrow our nephew…Logan…to pull off this one. He’s the perfect age AND has the perfect hair!
We headed over to Troy last saturday for a costume contest and parade. Unfortunately it was FREEZING and the wind was terrible. However we did get third place in the family category (LOTS of really good competition) and we were happy with that. Logan’s sister (and their mom Aunt Jenny) joined us for the morning. Evie’s costume for preschool and trick or treating! Originally she wanted to be a pirate…but that changed to a witch. About the time we were ready to work on the witch costume (by we I mean…I find items on clearance and my talented mom makes whatever else we need) Evie had then changed her mind and wanted to be Minnie Mouse….again! So we all decided the idea of a “Minnie Mouse witch” would work great. And here she is: What a cutie!
And now for the “THROWBACK”
2002: Flapper girl and Ganster boy
(2003: we were on our honeymoon and did not dress up that year:)
2004: Definitely one of my faves….all of this was made by my mom…including homer’s mask and my wig2005: Totally last minute and a little cheesy, but I’m a huge margarita fan so I wanted to be a margarita fairy. (Andy was Ron Burgandy from the movie Anchorman (and I”m not posting a photo as he would shoot me…he wore a short….orange robe and I can understand him not wanting that posted on the internetWe dressed up our dog Maggie too2006: We actually went as Cleopatra and a mummy (but the mummy was the next night and unfortunately we don’t have any pictures

They kept their costumes a secret from all of us friends….and when they walked out I immediately knew why. They punked us!!! They dressed up as Faye and Andy Sommer! I”m still laughing when I think about it. I was crying from laughing so hard when I first saw them! They got every detail perfect! Here they are:2010: We had to bring out the Simpsons costumes again2011: The cutest little Elmo EVER….(anyone wonder where we got the costume/inspiration for 2012’s christmas card?)
