Halloween

I love Halloween. I'm already planning for it.

Tucker's costume is ready; he's going to be a chicken.

As for Scout and I...

To make a very long story short, two of my girlfriends are staying with us for a while. They will most likely be here through Halloween.

So I had a genius idea. Let's all dress up together!


How much fun would we have walking down the street as a "polygamist" family? Would you not laugh as you walk by with your kids? (Oh, come on. Have a sense of humor.)

Here's the deal. One of my friends is down with my twisted idea. Scout and my other friend are not so convinced.

Scout said that if I get a certain amount of comments (a number which I can't disclose to you) and he gets to pick his own costume without my input, he will do it. My second friend said she'd do it if Scout does it.

So I'm asking you a favor. If you usually comment, please comment and tell me what an awesome imagination I have. If you lurk and don't usually comment, please (PLEASE) comment this time!

I can't wait for you guys to see the pictures!

Ok, the thought of a polygamist family walking down the street with a chicken in tow is too funny! Plus I am sure it will give your new neighbors something to talk about! :)

You absolutely must do this. Do they have to be individual commenters or can some of us comment more than once?

Trudy said...

I think a group costume is a great idea. We did it once (Wizard of Oz charactors), but your idea is great.

But, can you walk down the streets with cocktails? I don't know if polygamists do that.

Sounds funny to me. But you don't know me, so I'm not sure if my vote counts...

Cindy said...

Oh, my gosh Erin...What you don't think of!!! Jon & I both vote yet. He just cracked up. Can't wait for pics.

Kiki said...

I have to admit, that would be pretty stinkin' funny. I'd give a little giggle as you walked past.

Erin said...

Sis B: Scout didn't specify about how many times one person could comment, but he did specify "NO CHEATING!", so I'm sure multiple comments would fall under that category.

Everyone: I'm so excited to hear from you! I can't believe how many unfamiliar names there are! :)

Do it Scout!!! It would be hilarious, and tell him it will be as close to a harem as he can get!

Tiffany said...

Great idea! I personally think it would be hysterical, and genius. You know no one else will have a costume like yours!
