halloween horrors

So since I'm not big into Halloween Jeremy was on his own for finding a costume...again (he likes to wear one to work when possible). This year he decided to rent a costume. And what did he rent? I'll give you a clue.

I love you, you love me,
we're a happy family,
with a great big hug
and a kiss from me to you,
won't you say you love me too?

Barney. He said it was the dumbest thing he could find, but I think really he just wanted to upset Alexis, which he did. The video isn't super high quality, but I didn't feel like waiting an hour for the larger better quality one to upload. Also, please ignore the piles of laundry in the background. I'll have you know they are at least clean AND folded.

My favorite part of this video is what she says after she discovers that barney is really Jeremy. After 4 minutes of near tears and fear she says, "oh, I like your costume"! But she changed her mind again when we went trick-or-treating, she kept looking at him like, "why are you still following me?" And when she would get tired of walking she would NOT let barney touch her. Good thing Tyler was okay with him or else I would have wound up carrying them both around the neighborhood. I may be pretty super but I'm not superwoman.
Once we got home from our Halloween festivities Alexis wanted to look at her candy, so we dumped it all out on the couch. After awhile I noticed she was "playing family" as she calls it, with her suckers. There was a mom, a dad, a brother, a sister and about a million little babies. Lollipops are her treat of choice and they made up 1/3 of her bucket of candy this year. I even counted them. There's 24. Well, today there's only 23.
And no, we didn't carve any pumpkins. And yes, I'm glad this holiday is over.

Ahahahha!! That video is soooo funny! I loved it! I also thought it was funny that she thought it was her grandpa. :)Plus, I can't not comment on the suckers! WOW! Look at that, another thing Alexis and Jake have in common...the love for suckers. :) (Jake's favorite as well.) That's awesome! I like that picture of her holding up all her suckers. :) I also learned something new today...I had no idea that you didn't like Halloween. :) I am guessing Jeremy does though. :) LOL! How funny was his costume! I seriously was ready to start rolling on the grass when I saw you guys coming up the sidewalk. :) HILLARIOUS!!!!

Very funny!!!! Alexis says such funny things. I have to agree with you I am really glad Halloween is over. Love Jermeys costume. I think I would keel over an die if Steve ever came home dressed up for halloween. He was the only one not dressed up at his work. Jeremy needs to take him under his wing, and teach him the joys of costumes.

Does Barney always look like a girl, or is it just Jeremy's costume?
