The Way We Roll - Part 1

Daron and I have decided to jump headfirst into Halloween festivities this year. Our ward was lucky enough to get HALLOWEEN night at the church for our ward party and trunk-or-treat. The Young Men and Young Women are in charge of the spook alley, which we are putting together later this afternoon. The goal this year is more crying- there were only two criers last year. Those stats are way too low- especially when you have a YM president that looks forward to Halloween all year, like most kids look forward to Christmas. He and his wife typically have the very best costumes, so Daron and I decided to kick it up a notch this year. Winning the "Best Costume" award would be a stunning upset- Of course we will pretend to be humbled and awed by the honor...but we all know: We deserve it!! 'Cause Barnes' don't work this hard on something unless there is a handsome reward at the end, and/or bragging rights.

So, for your entertainment, I've posted pictures below of our costume construction for this year. Yep, we are going as Sushi and Soy Sauce. So come on Carliles!! Let's see whatcha got!!!


Look to the far left. You can see some weirdo's head inside the Sushi Roll. That's Barnes humor for ya...
So there you go. Part one of our epic Halloween saga. And it only took us until 1am last night to pull it off. Plus two trips to Wal-Mart... And no more black duct tape in ALL of Raleigh... I'll let you know how it all goes down...
