Halloween 2014

Behold! I give you pictures of the Kendrick Family Halloween 2014:

Iris Eve: as a night owl (but seriously, the bags under my eyes right now):

(Like, you don't know how happy this makes me, ok?)

Anson Idaho: Harry Potter!
Oh yes, two years in a row!
But this year we've read the first book!

I mean, this kid is FEELING it (which is why books are the best thing ever).

And now all together:

Early on in our parenthood Christopher and I had big plans of homemade costumes, midnight sewing sessions and cardboard cut outs, but this year we succumbed to the store-bought enterprise, and though it pains me a little my kids don't care one bit. So why should I? I said WHY SHOULD I?

(They also seemingly don't mind being popular characters which was always my worst Halloween nightmare--every year I took great pains to be something entirely original. If I saw someone in a similar costume it would ruin my holiday. Why are my kids so much more laid back than me? Christopher?)

But I should also add, Anson is wearing my sweater as his Hogwarts robe and so that's got at least a little homemade charm to it. See? I haven't sold my soul to Costco. (Except that I really have.)

Oh look, here's a photo what it looks like when you sell your soul to Costco:

That's not even a real skeleton. Calm down.

But yes, the cleavage is 100% real.

Thanks to the Springville Art Museum and their incredibly friendly staff for letting shoot our photos on at their beautiful facility! We love that place.
