A long weekend of Halloween festivities!

1st November 2005

It all started Friday night when friends from Clearwater invited us over for a pumpkin carving dress-up Halloween party. I went as Dr. Spandex (wearing my bicycle shorts combined with the nice shirt and shoes I normally teach in).

Analise went as a TV-remote-control-bearing lion. Kristine went along with Analise as the TV-remote-control-bearing lion tamer. Other funny guy costumes included a Hooter’s waitress (Kurt), a sumo wrestler (Byrant), superman (Stephen), a redneck hillbilly tooth fairy (Michael), Cereal Killer (Blake), Cow (Ben). Girl costumes included Kris-Kross (Stephanie and Claire), Marilyn Monroe (Lauren). Here’s a picture of all the girls (after Analise had already changed into her pajamas).

Unfortunately, we couldn’t stay for the actual carving, so we had to carve our own pumpkin on Sunday night. That was a lot of fun, and we came up with our own design. Here a few pictures…

Earlier in the day Saturday morning, Samford was having homecoming festivities associated with our homecoming football game. We went to watch the parade. Analise dressed up as a pumpkin.

Finally, last night for Halloween we went trick-or-treating in our neighborhood as part of our walk through the dark scary woods to Lakeside to enjoy the harvest festival with Grandma Toone. Analise had a blast. Her favorite thing to do was to go tearing through the gym carefully avoiding being run over by the big kids and the grownups. For the lucky ones who made it all the way to here. I’ve uploaded two short video clips of her at the gym:

    Look at my on-the-ball husband!! What a great post and I’m glad he had the energy to post all these fun pics. I’ll chime in with a post later today on my holiday musings. Hope everyone’s well!

    Analise is awfully cute!! Where are the pics of Brian’s costume?

  3. Robyn Says:

    Yeah, we want to see Brian!!!!

    Unfortunately (hehehe), no pictures were taken using Dr. Spandex’s camera of Dr. Spandex, himself. If his wife were to email the appropriate people who were also at the party, then she could probably produce an interesting picture or two that were taken on other people’s camera of the elusive Dr. Spandex.
