The demon barber of Fleet Street

Ryan and I were Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett (the Tim Burton version) for Halloween:

We got to dress up for Mandy's (Ryan's sister) annual Halloween party. Mandy and Charlie were Ms. Hannigan and Daddy Warbucks. Here's Mandy along with a pretty good Sarah Palin. You can see Charlie sitting in the background:Ryan's cousins Dave and Matt and their wives were the gang from Scooby Doo. I like Rebecca's glasses:
Ryan's brother Sam was a Chia pet. And in this picture I guess he's a Chia pet pretending to play the saxophone:

We got to dress up again the next night for our ward Halloween party. This time the kids joined in:

Ryan pointed out that it might not be the best idea to base our costumes on an R rated movie for the ward party. A lot of people didn't know who we were supposed to be. Some thought Ryan was Edward Scissor Hands, which isn't too far off. In the past whenever Ryan or I have been in a costume the boys are a little wary of us, but it didn't seem to faze them this time. Not even Charlie.

You guys look great! Charlie is such a cute Bob the Builder. It was fun seeing you at the party. I wish you lived closer so we could hang out more often. Like in my ward would be nice. :)

umm, it fazes me. :) you guys all looked fabulous. creepy, but great.

rebecca looked adorable.

and, yeah, rated-R movie characters are like probably banned at ward functions. :) kidding. kind of. but if anyone did know who you were you could have said, "ah-ha, gotcha." then turn them in to the bishop. haha. kidding.

Well, I thought more people would know who we were even without having seen the movie. That's possible, right?
But we definitely went more of the creepy/gross route than the cute/witty route this year. There was one couple who dressed up as "static cling" with all kinds of objects stuck to them. That's more of the typical ward party costume.
And Rebecca, your ward has so many young familes it would probably explode if another one moved in. How many nurseries do you have? Seven? Really I'm just jealous that you have so many other people your age in your ward.

yeah "static cling" would have made me puke. i liked what you did.

Happy Halloween! Miss you all!

THANK you for dressing up for your ward party! You look fabulously fun! (I went to ours as Tippi Hedren from "The Birds" & only 2 people got it; so I felt lame.)
I heard one of my old Chocolate Factory Co-workers was passing out fancy goodies at your "Trunk or Treat." Quick, let's convert him!
