Yeah, so, we did our first family costume this year for Halloween.
Yep. We’re those people now. Go ahead and judge. I can take it.
Sadly, we didn’t get a photo of all three of us together yet. We are wearing these costumes a few more times before Halloween time is over, so I’m sure we will get at least one. Plus, I think you get the whole picture with these two pictures. The Spawn is Captain Kirk. David was supposed to be Spock, but the ears didn’t fit, so I guess now he is Bones. You can’t tell in that photo above, but I’m wearing Vulcan ears. I’m just some random red shirt (well, technically it’s a dress), which means I’m most likely the one to die if we beam down to a new planet.
I think we have a lot of family costumes in our future. We’re into it. We’re dorks, and it’s fun.
Originally, I wanted to dress The Boy up as Batman, and mighty, mighty good man David would be the Penguin and I could be Poison Ivy or something. But, we decided that most likely The Boy will want to dress up as Batman someday. Now is our chance to dress him up in costumes we pick, hence the Star Trek outfits. It could be as soon as next year that Calvin will want to pick out his own Halloween costume. I’m hoping we have one more year that we get to pick, because I think Calvin would make a great hobbit.
Oh, so anyway, remember last week when I asked, “What’s your dish?” I was planning on baking cupcakes for my sister and brother in law’s Halloween party. Well, this is how they turned out.
The cream cheese frosting was a little runny at first, but I tried to thicken it up the best I could. The cupcakes were a little messy to eat, but they tasted pretty good. I thought they were delicious, if I don’t say so myself. I got a few compliments on them. Maybe cream cheese frosting was a little too ambitious for me since I’m not an experienced baker.
I’m not sure what kind of cupcakes I want to try next. I might try an eggless cupcake recipe since The Boy is allergic to eggs. It would be nice to bake something that I could actually let my son eat.
