First Place! The "Holidays"
Our family costume theme for Halloween this year was "The
Holidays" with St. Patrick's Day (Michael), April Fool's Day
(Blaine), Easter Sunday (Amara), Fourth of July (Jason),
Thanksgiving (Felicia) and Christmas (Rosemary).
costumes were especially labor intensive and Felicia spent most of
October sewing everything you see here. Blaine helped
with hats, beards, props, accessories, etc. but the credit for the
costumes goes to Felicia.
This year we joined the local Halloween
parade where Blaine's parents live and won first place in the
family/group category. This is in addition to the individual
awards that Jason, Rosemary and Felicia won in their respective age
groups (child, teen, adult). The next day we entered the costume
contest in our local city, and won another first prize in the
group category and we made it on TV!
