Who You Gonna Call? Ghostbusters!

Okay, so the best things in life you have to wait for. After much begging from people in our ward, and compiling, here are the best Halloween shots we have.

The whole family. Notice the Tootsie Roll in Abe's hand.

Slimer definately gets in the way of fighting off ghosts. We had a couple of kids dressed as ghosts, they ran away from us in panic all night long.

A close up of the Proton pack. Yes, it really did have flashing lights. They were pretty cool.




I give myself props for turning this pattern, for a 5 year old, into this costume, for a one year old. Notice the Cheeto in Abe's hand. These are the trophies Ken made for the costume contest. Tami took home Best Family Costume. Tami saved us by watching Abe during the Trunk or Treat. We would have never made it without her!

Trunk or Treating!

Dorothy looks grumpy. I think she wants to get back to her candy gathering! We had a great Halloween and hope that you all did too!!

Davis Family said...

Very good indeed. Love the slimmer picture too! I dont blame him for hating his costume though, it does not look comfortable.

I have to say that I was wondering what the heck a "slimmer" picture was, because I thought you looked quite slim in all the pictures. Then I realized it's supposed to be slimer. Now I get it.

Those costumes are so awesome!! And you get extra super bonus points for making that SLIMER costume! (But, I bet it wasn't too hard to change it to Abe's size since he is practically the size of a 5 year old already.)

Ahh. Pictures. I can sleep again at night. You guys look great. Good idea. I like the picture of Abe sliming across the floor, too. Ken is the master at awsome and creative recreations. I can't believe they actually lit up. Good job Carliles!

You guys are so cute! I love the slimer, and you really do deserve props for your remarkable converstion from 5 year old bee to one year old somer. Have I mentioned that you look gorgous! Your hair is just beautiful.

Rachel said...

Oh my goodness...I LOVE the slimer costume! Abe looks adorable! I love that you all dressed up. You have inspired me and maybe next year I just might have to dress up too!

Too bad you didn't let me know about your costumes earlier. My best friend was a little obsessed (well a lot actually) with ghost busters. I could have helped get all those defining features most don't think about, but would notice. Anyway, looks good and glad you had fun :)
