this year's costume picks... kenzie - flight attendant. her friend, dauzhae was going to come with us and dress up like a pilot, but that fell through because of kenzie's volleyball practice. max - gladiator, aka maximus decimus meridius. and madi - a broken doll. i think she wanted this costume because she wanted a wig. we didn't want to pay extra for the wig, so her dad suggested coloring her hair with kool-aid. about 20 minutes before we had to leave the house on halloween (and after i already refused to buy her some at albertsons) her dad came home, with a couple packs of kool-aid. she excitedly hurried off into the bathroom to brush on a watered-down mixture of grape drink mix powder. only to end up throwing her hair into a ponytail. she had it curled this morning when she wore her costume to school and it looked really cute.
when we arrived at the dayton's the sun was already behind the mountain, so we rushed to get a few pictures taken. the daytons all dressed up. there was an indian, a spartan, the evil queen and heisenberg (from breaking bad). the bertrands arrived a little later and the beaches a little later after that. jayce was death and darian surprised us all when he changed into his inflated stay puft marshmallow man costume. gabi was a ladybug. not a real one (even though she thought her cousins believed she could really fly). and savannah was a bumble bee. grandma and grandpa carter were there too, but they didn't dress up.
