As a sign of Chris' advancing years, he was not too focused on Halloween this year. I couldn't get him to come up with any ideas for a costume, although he did want to dress up. So we basically came up with one for him...as a punk rocker. Mike bought some black fingernail polish and orange hair gel, and I cut up an old t-shirt and Mike wrote punk rock phrases all over it. Here he is:
He's definitely the sweetest punk rocker I've ever seen!
Kieran got to participate in his first Maplewood Halloween costume parade...very exciting!! Because of the unpredictable and off-again-on-again-rainy weather, it was held inside.
Here is Chris' 5th grade teacher, with her very "subtle" Obama logo on her sign.
I thought this costume was very original--it was a substitute teacher who came dressed as Joe the Plumber! Note the McCain-Palin button and the plunger...
