Jennifer, in particular, did a bang-up job planning it all, but we also have to thank my mom for helping out with a costume for Lily.
And, of course, Sam came through with his typically creativity for homemade costumes, too.
In summary, Sam (almost 12) was a Star Wars bounty hunter of some sort, Walt (almost 10) was a dead ram thing (don’t ask), Ben (7) was a LEGO brick, Tom (5) was a traffic light (notice he’s wearing a t-shirt for “The Catholics Next Door”, and Lily (9 months) was a nun.
We had an old skeleton costume that Walt once wore in an episode of That Catholic Show. And Sam, for some reason, made a mask of a ram’s skull. So Walt went as a dead ram/skeleton thing. We still don’t know what this was supposed to be.
