Some of you may remember that at Jude's tiny Catholic school, Halloween is a very, VERY big deal. Competition is FIERCE to win the three coveted prizes given out in each grade - Scariest Costume, Funniest Costume and Most Creative. Parents often spend weeks constructing these costumes. Long, serious rivalries have developed. It's a complete costume throw-down. It has all the makings of excellent reality tv.
But thankfully, after years of crazy, complicated Halloween costumes, which involved hours and hours (and hours) of work from me (witness THIS and THIS and THIS), this year Jude decided to go minimalist.
Here is Jude as his principal, Sister Maureen...
For reference so you can see how excellent his costume was, here he is with the real Sister Maureen...
Actually, he was part of a duo, his friend George went as our school secretary, who has been a fixture at the school for at least 20 years.
And guess what? They won for Funniest Costume! Woohoo!
Here are a few more of this year's costumes that I particularly loved...
I guess I need to start thinking about what Jude's going to be next year. Hmmm. He mentioned something about the Headless Horseman, which sounds like a lot of work. Damn, better start paper macheing soon!

Since today, November 2, is All Soul's Day, the Day of the Dead, I thought it would be fitting for us to take the opportunity to remember those who have passed away.
Have you lost anyone this year? Maybe you've been thinking a lot lately about someone you lost long ago?
Here's a chance to celebrate their lives and remember their deaths. A friend, relative, a celebrity or even a much-loved pet.
Write your spin on In Memoriam, post it, let me know and I'll link it here.
