Halloween was kind of anticlimactic for us this year. In the past, Josh and I have enjoyed doing couple's costumes. We were a cop and an inmate in '06, Sonny and Cher in '07, two of the Village People in '09, Popeye and Olive Oyle and Sweet Pea in '10, and I cannot for the life of me remember what we were in 2008. Anyways, this year we were very excited to be Peter Pan, Wendy, and Tinkerbell. My mom made Audrey's Tinkerbell costume and it turned out fabulous!! I am so happy with it. I made her wings out of a hanger and a pair of tights.

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of Josh and I in our costumes. That's because we never even put them on. We had a Halloween party to attend last week and I scrambled around to find a blue nightgown for my Wendy costume, but Josh ended up getting stuck at work until 8:30 that night so Audrey and I went to the party without him. And there was no way I was dressing in a nightgown without him dressed in tights and a short dress. Without Peter Pan, no one knows who Wendy is. So I thought, "No big deal, we'll all dress up for trick or treating at the mall". Except that never happened. Audrey goes to sleep at 7pm sharp every night and if we are even a few minutes late, she's screaming her head off and cranky as hell, so I decided it would just be best to stay home and hand out candy. If she were old enough to actually eat the candy, I would have made it a priority to take her out, but this year I felt I could skip it without feeling guilty. So that's the story of how Josh and I missed our Peter Pan themed Halloween costumes. :(

Saturday I took Audrey to the Air and Space Museum's "Air and Scare". There were lots of trick or treaters and lots of candy, but not much entertainment for the littlest ones. We met Dad and Lisa and Matthew and  Cristina there and they were having tons of fun! Audrey just enjoyed running around looking at the benches and being carried around like a queen.
