This photo makes me crack up every time I look at it! So this was our Cartoon and Video Game Character costume party. My two brothers came as Mario and Luigi just by coincidence. My wife and I were Ninja Turtles, my son Link, well he was Link:) My son Noah was Steve, my daughter Ave was Rainbow Dash. It was the blissful mix of childhood and pop culture personified.
I think this is the year that we solidified the costume party as a tradition. Everyone had a blast and you could tell that everyone put a lot of work into their costumes. You’ll see how it’s grown when I post the more current years.
