We interrupt this pretty irregulary scheduled catch up to give you...

...a Halloween catch up.

Featuring Nacho,


his favorite snack-corn on a stick with mayo and chili powder,

and (totally unrelated) a couple of pieces of gum stuck to the bottom of some shoes.

I had a blast last year making Max's "Max" costume, so I decided to give it another go this year. As soon as I knew I wanted to do Nacho Libre, I began my search for all the pieces. My good friend Deseret Industries always comes through for me and this...


...became this


I worried about the cold on his little bare chest, hence the Chancho (two sizes too small) sweat shirt.

I really wanted Jayne to be Encarnacion the nun, but wasn't sure if that would be offensive to some of our neighbors. So when my sister-in-law suggested she should be corn, I thought, "perfect" since Max's favorite line from the movie is, "Get that corn outta my face!" Sorry, I don't have a before shot, but I made it out of a nylon camping blanket. Only one person really got it without being told which I knew would be the case. Poor thing. One day she'll say to me, "Mom, how come all the other little girls got to be princesses and butterflies and I had to be corn with mayo slathered on it?" I'm sorry Jayne, I'm weird, but I hope one day even later on you'll look at this and appreciate it.



As for Shane and me, we weren't even going to dress up, but at the last minute saw the gum-on-the-bottom-of-your-shoe idea. It was fast and easy so we went with it. Again kind of obscure. Nobody got it and kept wondering why we had shoes on our heads. I know, it's kind of lame, but if you make fun of us you'll have to deal with this


and you may get a nice pile drive to the face

or a punch to the face

and trust me, you do not want to get caught in the anaconda SQUEEZE

Happy belated Halloween. Hope you had a good one too!

Oh my goodness-that gave me a good, needed laugh. You're killin me! I love the idea of Nacho Libre-very original! I am very very impressed with your creativity in putting that costume together-way to go! Once again-you amaze me woman! (Cause I'm pretty sure Elise had more to do with it than Shane!)

Kristen Weller said...

Wow. Awesome. Way better than a lame old store-bought (well, E-bay bought) Tigger costume!

You guys are so awesome! I love your costumes. Seeing Max as Nacho just made my day.

Jon Smith said...

Wow, you went all out in those costume designs, I dig 'em. The cape ornamentation is incredible. Max's belly looks real too, how did you make that?

Kem said...

Hee Hee, I love this so so funny great job!!!!! As soon as Justin is done with all the leafs in are yard I'll have to show him. I am almost rolling around the floor with laughter.

Our Little Corner said...

Remember last year when I didn't know that Max was Max? Well, I recognized him this year, for sure! That's got to be the cutest thing I've ever seen. He can bring me some Orphan Chips any time. :)

Angie said...

Why didn't Max's Dad wear his Nacho costume? I know Shane, and I know he has one!!! Sweet digs and I can't wait to see the Nacho photos on Max's wedding video! Wardo

Danika said...

Love those costumes! I think if I show this post to Dan, our kids' costumes for next year will be decided. We love that movie at our house and quote it more than any other!

Melissa said...

OH my gosh, you guys are HILARIOUS! I can't get over how original you are, it's awesome. I love that Max was in that tight little suit and stretchy pants, and even in a too-small sweatshirt...could not be more perfect. We need to live closer. Really. So your creativity can rub off on us and so we can hang out and you guys can make us laugh. Weekly. At least.

OH. MY. GOSH. I laughed so hard at your kids' costumes. LOVE IT. I haven't been doing very well at keeping up with my friends' blogs either, but thanks for your little note on mine today. I'm glad to know Kya has a groupie already! We really should get them together to meet in person sometime, no??
