Trick or Treat

Max is a dinosaur (and please do not let him hear you call him a monster) and Wyatt is a monster (he does not care what you call him as long as there is candy and food involved).
Lauren made the costumes (see Wyatt's shadow?) and she made Max's first.
I secretly hoped that Wyatt's costume would look like Rodan, Mothra or Gamera the flying turtle, but that didn't happen.
They both looked awesome.

FABULOUS!! Now see, I'm sure Lauren could have easily made Nathan's elephant costume, but I have no skills of that sort so I paid $15 for it at Marshalls.

Sharkey said...

Excellent, excellent costumes! Your boys are so cute.

Patience said...

WoW! That's all I can say! WoW!!

(Couldn't she have made you a Tim McGraw costume?!?)

Sandy said...

Good God, Lauren has crazy mad sewing skills..seriously. The boys look great.

Ern said...

Wow, props to Mrs. Poop and Boogies! Those are some amazing skillz, Lauren.

Aly said...

The costumes look awesome - great job, Lauren! My mom made all of my halloween costumes when I was a kid - homemade ones are so much better than store bought costumes!

Dan said...

Fantastic costumes. Can she make them in a XXL?

Jamie said...

Wow, your wife is very talented! What about a pic of you two in costume?

kalki said...

Those costumes are fabulous. I especially like the feet.

Gale said...

I love the costumes these days. Way back in my kids days, what were they? Rayon and plastic masks o'death, have knife will cut nose holes. Can you say flammable? Nothing like being a good parent and sending your kids out in that crap with a freaking candle. ummm not me...a neighbor!

Ali said...

That Lauren, she's a pretty handy gal to have around! Can I borrow her?

susie said...

Adorable! What skill Lauren has with a sewing machine!

SciFi Dad said...

Very impressive work, Lauren.

Seriously. Those are awesome. Thanks for sharing them.

(And I laughed out loud at the Wyatt/food comment.)

Multi-tasking Mommy said...

You have a very talented wife. I only wish I could sew!!!

Jody said...

Just LOOK at them! So cute! You have the bestest wife. Just a reminder!

creative-type dad said...

Wow! Great job with the costumes

Anonymous said...

Any chance she will open a Lauren's Secrets department so that I may order costumes for my wife?

Jen said...

Awesome!

Effie said...

Lauren--you are amazing!

I ran out of ideas (and her froggy sleeper was in the wash) and since Katrina was just going to be handing out candy with me, I put her in a blue sleeper and we called her a boy....

How cute are they!! I wish I could make clothes/ costumes. I feel lucky when I successfully replace a lost button!
