Halloweens of Yesteryear: 2004

The Littles: Red Riding Hood & Bo Peep

We didn't get good pictures of Jane's and Zuzu's costumes on Halloween that year, so we dressed them up again and tried for a photo shoot in December. They were far too entertained by their hilarious joke of throwing down Bo Peep's staff to hold still, so eventually Peter gave up and resorted to video. We recycled Jane's Goldilocks dress from the year before and Peter's mom made the red cape and Zuzu's costume -- all except for the vintage pinafore. (Amy Moore, are you out there somewhere? Do you recognize the pinafore?) Bo Peep's staff was a giant plastic candy cane from the dollar store that I spray painted. It may have been the only time in my life I was happy that the Christmas merchandise was already out at the beginning of October.

Were they really once that tiny?
Wow. So cute.

Video is a brilliant solution to the problem of kids that won't hold still for a photo--because how much more delightful is it to get to watch the joke, (over and over,) anyway?

(You sure do have spirited kids.)

that's funny to see - I remember adoring those outfits the first time I met your kids at the MyFamily trick or treating at work - I didnt' know who you were - but adored the little girls!
