Most Awesome Halloween Hijinks of Doom

I started this blog on January 1st, 2005, when my younger son was four years old. He’ll be seventeen in two weeks. He’s practically an adult now (*cough*) and he’s used to being his mother’s social media fodder. Especially when it comes to pictures.

Like in 2010, when he found the Harry Potter glasses his brother won a costume contest with years before.

Or 2011, when the school spirit week theme day was the 1980s.


And in 2013, there was the cheeseball story.


And then came the high school’s Halloween costume contest of 2017…

Three high school girls dressed up as the three photos of my son, holding printed out copies. A girl with long, blonde hair wearing a blue tee and Harry Potter glasses. A girl with long brown hair wearing a coat with the collar flipped up like Miami Vice and aviator shades. And a girl with long brown hair wearing a Tom Brady jersey and hugging a bucket of cheeseballs


The prizes included Dunkin Donuts gift cards and, I might be a tad bit biased, but I was pretty outraged these three awesome young ladies didn’t win. Not only was the group costume concept original and hilarious, but the execution was perfection.


But y’all know I love my happy endings, so I awarded Dunkin Donuts gift card prizes of my own.
