Halloween Awards 2009

Continuing with a tradition I started last year, here are the 2009 Halloween Costume Awards:

Ellie as the cute little princess cupcake monger. She won FIVE cupcakes from the cakewalk and was going back for more when her stash disappeared. Luckily, she was too busy trunk-or-treating by the time she noticed and didn't really care anymore.

Adam as the saddest dinosaur EVER. He had to wear the dinosaur costume for the FOURTH year in a row and the mere thought gave him a fever (or maybe it was just that he's been sitting in a petri dish all week at school. There were ELEVEN kids out sick from his class on Friday).

Emma once again takes the creativity prize with her vision of a "Build-A-Bear" costume.

Cami blatantly refused to wear her lavender lame pantsuit, but still won the award for best excuse not to fold your arms during prayer costume.

Spencer wins the lame-o award for his "Recovering Nudist" costume.

And me? I don't know. You decide.

I'm thinking something like the "Blank Stare" award, since not too many people seemed to get my costume.

I had been hoping that at least the Three Wolf Moon shirt would bestow some magical powers my way, but neither my chili nor my not-so-famous apple pie even placed in the top three, Adam went home sick, all the cakes I stayed up until 2am making went to waste when they cancelled the school fall festival for too much illness (after I'd already dropped them off), and now Glen is sick too.

Wasted effort.

Oh well. So much for staying up late. So much for "magical" powers. So much for trying to do too much.

At least I've got the mediocrity and self-pity awards in the bag just fine.

Another Halloween to remember for all-time. Much like the infamous Halloween 1993 snowstorm that dropped more than 30" of new snow and caused many of us to cut the night short-in time to get home and be snowed in for a couple of days.

You sure went to a lot of work to get everyone and everything ready only to have it cancelled. Oh well, there is always next year.

Hope poor Adam is feeling better already.

Love, Grandpa-Grandma

I love all their costumes!
One thing's for sure Lara, there is no way you will ever win a mediocrity award! You are a major over-achiever in everything you do!

Grandpa-Grandma Crain said...

Amen to what K just said!!

So sad, the cakes looked great though and I just love your costume, not quite sure what you are but you look great!

Denise said...

Aw. Dang. I would have been so mad.

So...need help eating cake?


angela said...

Too bad you can't even drown your sorrows by eating all those cakes alone in your bedroom. Maybe you need to make 5 more.
I love all the costumes, especially Cami's!

Karey said...

Such cute costumes! Especially Emma and Cami! How in the world did Emma come up with a build-a-bear - what a great idea!

So sad to hear that some of you are sick :( Hopefully it won't hit all of you!

Deanne said...

All the costumes are great! And I certainly don't get yours...don't you dress like that every day? hehe...kidding

Will all these costumes be reappearing for trick-or-treating or will there be a whole new set? Can't wait to see what else you guys come up with!

alexandra said...

Can't really think of anything that hasn't been covered in your previous eight comments. Hope you're all better for a second round of trick-or-treating.

And like everyone else, I laugh at the thought that you could ever be mediocre, three wolfy moon shirt or not!

Charlene said...

do another giveaway for the cakes!! I would love to win one of those!!

K said...

I hope you get some good solid sleep tonight Lara! I also hope that Glen and Adam feel better soon!

Lara said...

I only wish I could have drowned my sorrows with those cakes (AND done a cool giveaway with the rest), but alas I had already donated them when they cancelled. I have no idea where they are now. Probably in a landfill somewhere getting devoured by rodents or something.
