The whole family in costumes!

I think it has been a couple years since I have dressed up...but something got into me this year. Friday morning, before the party...I went to Joannes and got to work on "Cruella Devil." I figured if Robbie was a dalmation and Elle was a cat...it would sort of go. Anyway, I made the black and white tutu and then painted polkadots on this faux fur. A little hair color and wala...the most costume Ive worn since DG days! Rob came home and surprised me with his costume...he said he got a lot of strange looks on the subway, I wonder why!

Cruella and Robbie the doggie


Hillbilly sox fan and baby Elle the Kitty. Rob made these hillbilly teeth in the dental lab. When he got home and tried to kiss me...I thought that they were actual teeth that he had extracted and I nearly threw up. He went along with it and said "I totally sanitized them!" Then he told me the that he had made them out of composite...silly me!

One strange looking family!


Robbie was not totally in to wearing his costume! He kept taking the hat off and asking me to take off the body. Well, after the monsoon at the Lagoon the next day...I dont know if he will be able to wear it again anyway!

I was just saw that cute dog costume and thought the same thing....Bobby as the dalmatian and me as Curela....great minds think alike. Too bad Bobby is a little too small for that but maybe next year.

Chelsea, Jamie found your blog through another blog and it sure was fun to see how you have been doing! You have a most darling family! We miss the good ole days at UCC. We are in DC and may come out to PA in a few weeks! We might have to find you and catch up.

Chels, Only you could pull that costume together in a day! You guys looks so cute! (minus Rob's teeth) I bet you are such a fun mom. I wish we could hang out with our kiddos. We don't find out until March where we'll be going next year for residency. I'll keep you posted for sure. P.S. I love all of your Mass pictures. I wish I was on that trip with you! I love it there!

What cute costumes! You look fantastic. That is too funny about him teasing you with the teeth. I probably would have been gagging as well...

Chels,
The MAIN reason I went with Nikon was because Mike has a bunch of Nikon lenses from his old Nikon. They don't auto focus on the D40 but that's okay, I want to learn to shoot in manual anyway. I have heard tons of good things about the D40, D80 and the Canon rebel, I don't think you will go wrong with any of them... It's so fun having this new toy but I feel totally lost, it's all gibberish to me at this point!
