Happy Halloween

It's time for my first ever contest! 


We've always dressed our kids up as literary characters.  I  know this migh change next year when my son will be old enough to figure out what this holiday is about and make up his own mind but for now we're having fun. 

So the contest.  The first person to correctly guess what our kids are dressed up as wins.  The prize: $20 gift card to Barnes and Noble or Amazon.  Your choice.  We took our kids to a church halloween party on Saturday night and no one had a clue.  Don't people read anymore? 

Anyway, here are the pictures.



I did not paint their faces blue as at this age face paint is a Really Bad Idea. 

Some fun facts about my kids. (yes I'm a proud parent and honestly believe everyone wants to know about them.)

Son's current favorite food: Tortillas.  Followed closely by waffles. 

Daughter's favorite food:  Broccoli.  What kind of 18 month old loves broccoli?

Let the guessing begin.  Good luck.

  2. I *love* it! Since I don't remember Jamie being painted with woad, I'm guessing some William Wallace tie in. (Crossing my fingers)

  3. Oh my goodness. I know when you tell us, it's going to be totally obvious. I'm going with the "blue" clue and still not guessing it. Hmmm. I will be back after some contemplation. They are adorable!

  4. Braveheart is my first guess because I can't remember smurfs wearing kilts.

  5. Um . . .

  6. Zan, you're right, no outlander tie in but no William Wallace either. You can try again though, no limits to guesses.

  7. Abby, blue is a good clue, as is the red hair and the kilts. And the fact that they're small, though not as small as the actual characters.

  8. J.L.Murphey, Lol, no not smurfs, or Braveheart.

  9. Jolene, No, don't feel stupid. I thought people might have a hard time since it's a British author.

  10. Well now I feel silly that I don't know. But that is an adorable photo!
    I'd guess Sir Terry Pratchett but I hadn't heard that he had Alzheimer's...

  11. Don't feel silly. And all hints about the author are to point you towards the CHARACTERS my kids are dressed as.

  12. Duh! [forehead slap] But I'm afraid I'll have to bow out - haven't read the books (yet!) and don't want to Google...

  13. Really? Even though I've yet to read any of these books? Google gives me the answer The Wee Free Men. How cute!
    Also, when I google Crivens!, you're the fifth or so site that comes up [g]
