The day has come! It is officially Halloween. You would think I had extravagent plans for this special holiday, but alas I stayed inside all weekend. Shea and Sarah(broseph and wife) went to Vegas for a Halloween wedding (jealous), so I stayed in Orange County all weekend and dog-sat their girlies, Saylor and Sophie.
My mom came down from the homeland Bakersfield to watch my other brother, Bryn, and I play in a tennis tournament. (I would give you details, but we lost. haha) Yet, even with my exponential love for this day, I was content hanging out with the family and watching Iron Man and Hocus Pocus.
So because of my lack of Halloween-like plans or costumes, I decided to dedicate this blog to some Halloweens Past.
Before I was born, my mom dressed up as an angel. (I couldn't think of a more appropriate costume)
Daddy Mercado as Raggedy Andy back in yester-year.
Me and the broskies! Of course, I was always the cutest one. :) P.s. how cute is that tutu? I wish I still had it, and I could magically fit in it.
The Sassy Sisters! (My sister-in-law and I) We were quasi-hippies. My mother would argue that hippies would never wear heels, but I still protest.
Last year's Halloween. Nick and I went as Pebbles and Bam Bam. We made our costumes by hand, and I must say it is the ONLY way to go. Who wants to pay 80$ for a cheaply pre-made costume? Not I!
And now, ladies and gentlemen, my FAVORITE costume of all time. Are you ready? I don't know if you are, but here you go:
Just in case you don't get it, we all went as Sesame Street!!!!!! Here is our order, from right to left: Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch (ME!), Count Dracula, Big Bird, Rover, Bert and Ernie, annnd Elmo. I know, you are jealous. You can steal it for next year if you want.
I absolutely loved this costume! (handmade once again, thank you very much) My favorite was the trash can hat!
I had so many great times in all of these costumes, and I am so grateful for all the people I have spent past Halloweens with. Even though I didn't dress-up this year, I definitely have so GREAT ideas for next year. Always thinking ahead...
Until Next Time. :)
