this is halloween, this is halloween

The girls and their makeup artist, Heiderhead. The redneck on the left is their dad...sweet mullet huh

Happy Halloween from Sally (from "nightmare before christmas") and a witch (as per request for the third year in a row)

heading to our church's halloween party

Notice the dunking booth in the background. Tess spent all night trying to dunk her friends' dads-- she succeeded twice.

This is a pic of her throwing, obviously she took this activity pretty seriously.

the trunk or treat

no losers here...that's right, that's RIGHT!

Great costumes. They were very original...I would expect nothing less from a Skousen-Tippetts. Did you make Tess' dress?

"Oh, Mr. Moundshroud, will we ever stop being afraid of nights and death?" The expressions on Tess and Adelle's faces say it all...how deliciously fun it is to be scary and scared! Adelle reminids me of "Thing" on the Addams Family or was it the Munsters?

LOVE the costumes. I miss trunk or treat! Did you know little kids here don't even get to go trick or treating? It's only the older teenagers. I took the kids for the first time this year, and they are 8 and 9! Well I think that your girlies looked fantastic- and Tom of course in a mullet is freaking awesome. I think he should put that wig on for his clients, and maybe some eyeliner. boy that would be cool! And one more thing... did you stuff walnuts or grapes in Tess's cheeks?! cause my goodness... they look like chucky chipmonk right after invading the peanut factory...Maybe it's the makeup.

Okay okay, since you had to delete my other posting, I'll try again without the obscenities.

Your kids are so totally darling. I have honestly never before seen a cuter pair of costumes and makeup. Heidi did such a great job it really made a huge difference!

Linney, I bought Tess's dress at Goodwill and then put the patches on the front with my handy dandy sewing machine that I barely know how to use :-)

Grant is here and is showing me how to work this d--- thing.

Great Pictures!


Tell Tom about the Attorney who died and when he met St. Peter he said,"I'm only 39, that's too young to die". St. Peter replied, "We used the same calculator as you have for your billing hours, and that showed you are 109".
