She was mostly lonely because we all know that clowns are terrifying. (It had nothing to do with her terrible, bad, no good hair.) She also had a really cheap clown suit, possibly found in a garage, which got her kicked out of clown school. And so—lonely clown.
There was also, in that same town, an equally lonely shark. It was a coastal town.
Though the cards seemed stacked against it, the stars aligned and these two lonely souls met. The attraction was instant. It’s pretty clear from the photos why. (The clown is really funny.) They got married and a few years later…BOOM.
This year marks the first (and last?) year we did family Halloween costumes. In my head, this whole thing looked a little different. Why I expected anything else with three kids, I’m not sure. I will measure this a success because we are all in a photo, looking at the camera, and wearing some form of a costume. (I accidentally left the clown costume I was supposed to borrow in the closet of our roller derby practice facility.) Huge thanks to Rob’s mom for sewing on teeth and eyes and finding the clown noses! (Here’s where I got the hoodie inspiration.)
Wondering what our inspiration is? This lovely (and maybe terrifying) video from Rhett and Link.
Did you try any family Halloween costumes this year? Share links in the comment! I’d love to see your ideas!
