He Should Have Seen it Comin'

Lest you think Huck is somehow an anomaly and mistake what is a crucial part of our domestic landscape for abuse and ill humor, I will show you what I have done to my children and thus prove I have always been crazy, and by joining our family, he should have seen it coming...

I actually made this for a niece but I had to try it on someone before I shipped it...
I've seen this look on Huck's face too....

The Actual first costume

Wm age 2.  Lederhosen.

Age 3: Robin Hood.

First costume...it just seemed to fit her...
Age 4: He said he wanted to be a pirate....

Wm the vampire.  Anna at 2 & 3 asked to be a
Princess...she never specified which one...

Wm really got into it this year...he designed this one himself.

Prolly my favorite.  

Enter Huck's first costume...see how happy he is to be a part of the family??

  1. Love. This. I read your blog actively, which makes me feel a little creepy, since I'm still not sure how the Professor-former student-former employee relationship should play out in the blogosphere. But I keep trying to devise ways to become... cool enough? to borrow some of these costumes when I have kids/ dogs of my own.

    ...I especially love the Lederhosen. Your poor boy. That one goes in his wedding slide show for sure.
