Halloween

Those who know us know that Halloween is a HUGE deal for our family.  For many, many years we have dressed up as a family and our old neighborhood had an absolute utopic Halloween block party and hayride tradition.  Our first year in a new neighborhood had us not really knowing what to expect, but lucky for us the Chambley's were there to show us the ropes...
Unfortunately, it was FREEZING on Halloween night.  That stopped absolutely NONE of the children from visiting the snowball truck on Memorial Tower...

Our theme this year was Mary Poppins.  We realized that poor Cille had never gotten to be the "star" of the Halloween theme, so this was her year!  Isn't she practically perfect in every way? 
Stella was fresh off her run as a chimney sweep in Mary Poppins the Musical, so she recycled that costume for our family theme.  She claimed to be a girl chimney sweep, although I wanted her to be Bert.  You decide...

Corinne was Jane Banks, although we had to layer her up with some under armour for warmth...
Cille saw some school friends out in the neighborhood...
Watts was Michael Banks, although he hated this costume and changed into Captain America before we went trick-or-treating.  Party pooper...
Damon was Mr. Banks, and I was Mrs. Banks, of course.  Votes for Women! 

Damon was the only one whose costume was weather appropriate...
We had a great, though chilly, first Halloween in UClub, and we learned a few things about how Halloween can be done best in our new neighborhood.  We can't wait for next year!
