Months and months and months ago, Elliott had the idea to be Kip from "Napoleon Dynamite" for Halloween. As the months passed, more people got roped into the idea of a giant family themed movie costume party.
The assigned rolls were as follows
Quinn :: Napoleon
Elliott :: Kip
Wyatt :: Pedro Sanchez
Ross :: Principal
Annie :: Deb
Mama Judy :: Grandma
Coach Karl :: Happy Hands Club
Molly :: Summer Wheatley
Jack :: Don, Summer's boyfriend
Baby Brady :: Tina the llama
Now, thinking about it, I cannot remember what Haley and James were assigned...I think that James was also part of the Happy Hands Club - or maybe James was Rex Kwon Do and Haley was supposed to be Starla? I cannot remember....
Anyway, as Halloween drew closer, the costumes got more real. As silly as it sounds, I've maybe never been more proud (in an ironic sort of way) of how well my kids pulled off their Halloween costumes. They were the hit of school, the hit of the neighborhood and after our professional photo shoot images were posted to Uncle Rico's instagram feed, they were for a brief moment, the hit of the internet.
I laughed all day long and told Elliott before he went to sleep that most likely, never again in his life, would he ever have such a great costume.
It was truly the best!
