Frankenstorm: The Windy Night

Doesn't that sound like a silent horror film from the 40's? 

We are back in DC for the week and boy oh boy is it windy and rainy here. The trees are blowing all over the place and the wind is zipping around the windows. Not to be a pansy here, but while Steven's showering and it's just me and KJ in downstairs since Gage is asleep... the wind sounds eerily likes ghosts (or ghost-es as Gage says). 

We still have power and no damage to the house or anything else, thank heavens. But we're sending prayers up north and down south, too, for those who aren't so lucky. 

On a happier note, the storm should be cleared up by Halloween (or so they say) and we are so excited for Gage to trick-or-treat for real this year. 

He has three costumes (both of his grandmas have been spoiling him like crazy) and since we want to do a family costume theme this year, we have the following combinations according to Gage's costumes:

Option 1:
Gage: Captain America
Steven: The Hulk
Brooke: The Black Widow
Kjel: Thor (just put her in a monochromatic outfit and give her a toy gavel to chew on)

Option 2:
Gage: Spider-Man
Steven: Spider
Brooke: Aunt May
Kjel: MJ

Option 3:
Gage: Dinosaur/Dragon
Steven: Knight
Brooke: Princess
Kjel: Fat pumpkin fairy (because she has an adorable pumpkin costume given to her by... you guessed it. Grandma).

I'm thinking we'll go with option three, but you never know.

I'm kind of sad we didn't think of anything as witty as last year. My entire family (minus my brother and his cute family) were "Identity Theft" (11 Dwight Shrutes from The Office).
The Schrute Sisters: Sierra and Azure
 And Gage was a blueberry because he was OBSESSED with Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. His idea.

Are you dressing up? Gage has been asking everyone he sees, "What's your toss-toom for how-ween? You have to have one for trick-or-treat."


  1. Can't wait to see pictures! Stay safe through the storm ...

  2. Great Blog! Would you like to follow each other?

    Much Love,

  3. I'm so glad you guys are okay! And I hope you've continued to have power! Crazy how much damage has happened back east...prayers!

    Can't wait to hear about your Halloween. :) Loved all 3 of those family themed costume ideas. The spiderman one sounded adorable. But I would LOVE to see your dinosaur Gage and little pumpkin fairy Kjel. :)
