Happy Halloween!

My two kids, ready for trick-or-treating tonight!

Clara is a fairy princess, and Charlie is Max from Where the Wild Things Are, in a costume that my wife made specifically for him.

Someday I will actually read that book and appreciate her handiwork even more.


But she wasn’t finished when Charlie’s costume was complete. Clara said that her favorite baby doll, Katie, also needed a costume for Halloween, so Elysha went back to work and produced this for Katie to wear tonight.


My children are a couple of lucky kids. When I was a boy, my most common costume was a hobo or a baseball player, because I had clothing resembling that of a hobo and a Little League uniform in my closet already.
