Leslie and Aaron - Halloween 2002
This was at a party with Aaron's family. This was our first Halloween together. My costume, if you can't tell, is a gigantic candy corn. My Mom and I made this costume about 12 years ago.
Aaron was a superhero. If you can't tell which one, then I will have to tell you... before the party, Aaron started walking around our apartment searching for things to add to his costume... before we I knew it, my husband had been transformed into none other than...
BUM MAN !!!
Every time we dressed up for this party each year, Aaron was always something that he just threw together at the last minute... literally. I would get ready to go and tell him it was time to leave in a few minutes and that is when he would begin collecting items for a costume and throw it together. He was always something clever and funny.
Well, this year, in honor of Aaron (Bum Man), I decided that it would be fun for Aaron Jr. and me to dress up as the same characters as that first year that Aaron and I were married. So...
Gigantic Candy Corn and introducing...
BUM BOY !!!
Here are some side by sides so you can see both of them.
Bum Man & Bum Boy
Their costumes were almost the same.
White T-shirts with their sheild on the front.
Gray bottoms with a pillow stuffed into the bum part.
Electrical tape placed around arms and legs for affect.
One of Aaron's speedos that I believe he picked up in Brazil.
And, of course, the hair combed just right with a piece of hair sticking up in the back.
Here are a few other photos from this year's party:
Aaron's parents and all of their grandkids.
Sophia, Pearl, Malia, Sue, Aaron Jr, Isaac, Steve, Suzie, Grace
I was taking this photo AND spraying silly string at Aaron Jr. I didn't mean to hit him in the face. But it turned out pretty funny.
On the actual day of Halloween, we were visiting Aaron's sister, April and her family. (the next posting will show our fun trip). Here are a couple of shots from Halloween night:
Aaron Jr. in his Halloween pajamas that has spiders all over it and a hat that I bought several years ago. I bought two of these hats. The next photo is from Halloween 2004 of us wearing our hats. Anyhow, Aaron Jr. was spiderman... kind of. :)

Halloween isn't my favorite holiday, but I enjoy dressing Aaron Jr. up in fun costumes and watching him get excited. It is another day each year that Aaron is missing. Even though I don't love it, it is still something that we would have done together as a family.
We love you, Aaron...
