The Way We Roll - Part 2

As I post this, I'm reflecting on some bittersweet moments- Moments like the one when you realize that you bragged A LOT about your costumes, only to be outdone by the Carliles ONCE AGAIN. Bittersweet, because I DID WIN best female costume, but Daron came home empty-handed... After all, he was sushi! And I was just a side of soy sauce. Albeit, I was the cutest, sauciest soy sauce there that night, but oh well. We took the trophy and ran, and will re-launch our assault next year. (Well, I ran..Daron couldn't run anywhere)... We had a blast, and the rest of the ward did too... Did I mention that the kids had fun punching the sushi in the stomach?
(Although I had many people tell me this was the "cut" for me (for real?), this is NOT my real hair, or color..)
Our biggest tactical error was underestimating the "cute factor" of working a baby into your costume strategy. Having the Carliles position their spawn as the "Slimer" to their "Ghostbusters" was brilliant...

Kim isn't pictured here, but her costume was exactly like Ken's. Nice job Carliles!

Notice the ridiculous amount of detail in the "pack"..... Is that a Sprite bottle?

These are our friends, the Rabideau's and the Lung's. Let me tell you, there's nothing funnier than a mormon kid throwing gang signs in the church. West Siiide!

In closing, I've got a little riddle for ya: If Japanese people eat Sushi, what does Sushi eat?? Hot Dogs apparently..... Who knew?

You're costumes came out GREAT! Too bad Team Barnes didn't over take Team Carlile...maybe next year!

Very 'saucy' costume! (groaning at my own pun) But actually I loved it! (And secretly Ken was a Ghostbuster once before in the Singles ward - so I say you win for total creativity!!)

Kim and Ken Carlile said...

I'm not sure if he was a ghostbuster in the single's ward, actually. These were brand new costumes though. Anyway, I think you both looked awesome! We had a great time.
