Halloween Costumes

Wow, Jake was an unusually bad photographer on this one. Claire looks pretty bad. BTW: it is Claire's perogative to change her mind. At a Halloween party on the 30th and at my parents' house on Nov. 1, she was Batgirl. On Halloween she was Tinkerbell.

Jake's office had a costume contest. His group went with a "sheet" theme (Jake's idea). They tore up some sheets and added accessories. Jake wore a cowbell and was Bull Sheet. Others in his group were Piece of Sheet, Oh Sheet, etc. They won the contest.


Claire has a unique way of speaking. For example, this morning she pulled a cup out of the dishwasher and said, "I suppose this shall be mine." She's only three, so that seems atypical to me.

Also, she drags out some vowel sounds, especially long A: "When I was feeding Grandpa's horse's I heard a straaaaaaange sound." (She's never fed Grandpa's horses, this was part of a story she made up.)
