Happy Halloween from the "Corny" Family

After being inspired by a onesie Roy's aunt Toot-Toot gave him for his first Halloween I have been planning to dress up as the Corny Family for 2 years. I was waiting for the perfect year and the time has come! I bought the felt, created the pattern, custom fit each costume and it all paid off. I dragged my family out to the Central Texas Marketplace (a shopping area here in Waco) and signed us up for a costume contest. There were over 300 applicants and 4 age brackets we entered the 0-2 age bracket since Lilli is 1 and Roy is 2. We found a spot amongst the other contestants and waited patiently (as patiently as a 1 and 2 year old candy corn can) for them to announce the winner. And the winner is.... (a drumroll would be appropriate here)... The Candy Corn Family!!

After a few photo ops and some congratulations we received our prize, a Children's Place trick-or-treat bag and a $25 gift card. I'm already feeling a lot of pressure for next year... what could possibly top the Corny Family? We'll just have to wait and see!
