Fun fact: Homemade costumes are in my blood. It will take a hell of a lot for me to not piece together a costume for my kids.That’s not to say that I don’t love a cute store-bought costume. I might have considered a certain airplane get-up from Target as a backup.

Fun fact: Last year I wanted to dress Gabe up as a “French Man”, you know, curly mustache, baguette, the whole shebang. But I picked Mr. Peanut instead.  This year, I couldn’t get the French Man outfit out of my head…which obviously led to this, a mime.

Fun fact: I assumed the makeup process would be the most annoying part of getting this costume to work. Turns out, the kid hated the beret. Can’t imagine why. What man about town doesn’t appreciate a good beret?

Fun fact: Catching pale as a ghost Gabe out of the corner of my eye really freaked me out.

Fun fact: This kid is awesome

Fun fact: I did not dress my baby up as a bumblebee or a prisoner.

Fun fact: Gabe’s 1st official Trick-or-Treating went pretty darn good.
