We got into Halloween this year, even I dressed up. Travis had some rule that he must always wear a wig on Halloween. We have this great/nasty mullet wig that he has been sporting for the last few years, this year we switched it up and put the hair into a ponytail. It was pretty much awesome. Audrey had been planning to be a scary kitty cat for a few months (her idea), I had played around with the idea of having Phoenix be a pirate, but I knew the eye patch and the hat would never stay on, I saw a garden gnome costume at Target, and it would have been perfect...except for the beard and the hat. Then inspiration hit. I always thought that Phoenix looked a little like Chucky...and the costume would be easy (another concern was that Phoenix would be too hot in a costume because the boy does NOT like to be hot). I think it worked out rather well if I do say so myself. Travis was a redneck murderer, and I was a dead cheerleader (aka his victim). We kept to gore minimal for our ward's trunk or treat, but on Halloween we got a little crazy.
Nobody at our church even recognized Travis. His scruff totally looked real. It was a combo of real scruff (which thankfully he does not grow much of), brown eyeliner, and brown eyeshadow. I thought the results were realistic.

I pretty much dream every night, and I have ever since I can remember. It is not uncommon for my dreams to be related to the events of the week (friends, TV, movies...). Last night I went to bed early because I have been extremely tired the last few weeks (two weeks of being sick and now I am on the recovery week). I thought that by going to bed early that I would wake up feeling refreshed and energized. But last night I had a dream that was a mix of Glee, High School Musical, Camp Rock, and 24. I was Rachel (from Glee) and Travis was Finn. We were at a summer camp for talented kids that could sing and dance and boy did we sing and dance. Sharpay from HSM was there as well as her brother, I was looking for the Jo Bro's but they never showed up, and after all of the singing and dancing was done we ended up in some warehouse shooting guns like it was our job and being chased. Luckily, because this was the 24 segment of my dream I knew that we would get out of it OK because Jack Bauer always makes it. I woke up more tired than I was when I went to bed.

I told her that there isn't enough wall space in my house to display all of the pictures that I want to (seriously like 100). If you are lucky enough to live in the Raleigh area, her business is named funfetti photography.
