Annie finally figured out what she wanted to be for Halloween:
She’s Sue Sylvester, of course.
She wasn’t impressed with Mike or me. We went as members of the Glee Club New Directions:
We are TOTALLY going to Nationals this year!
Halloween was fun. This year my nephews and niece joined our usual crew. For the pictures, I put Annie in her Toy Story costume so she would match my friend Tara’s kids and my nephew.
She did not like that costume.
It was sweet to see Annie and Michaela together:
But I loved seeing Madeline’s friends love on Annie the way they did with Maddie two years ago:
We did a little bit of trick or treating, it was more fun for me to watch the older kids get excited than to carry Annie to a front door to get candy. So I hung back and watched them all squeal with joy, and it was wonderful and bittersweet.
And, Mike already ate all of the little bit of candy I managed to procure for Annie’s awesome costume. He’s so busted.
I have been waiting to see what Annie dressed up as for Halloween (along with my coworkers, who also adored Annie and Rigby’s Halloween video). This must be why I couldn’t sleep tonight. Totally worth it to see your cute photos at 1:30am
Hey, I just realized that I’m the 1st person to comment. Hooray for insomnia
Kate @ UpsideBackwards says:
LOVE the Sue costume! And all the kids look so adorable dressed up! I hope Mike gets you a whole lot more candy to make up for eating what was *clearly* yours
love love love love. the end.
Her Sue costume is awesome and the wig is priceless. Great choice Annie! Love her expression in the second pic. I really can read, honest, but when I saw the last photo, I thought it was Annie in a sock monkey costume. Madeline made a rockin’ sock monkey, so sweet.
Great choice! All of the kids were adorable!
That was my thought, what a great looking bunch of kids You three as adorable as ever of course
Michelle W says:
well that explains why I had no clue who or what she was. All the same I loved it because it was just so amusing, that wig is too much
Adorable. and I miss that little sock monkey
catherine lucas says:
Lovely… I laughed at the idea of Sue Sylvester, grin…
Annie will never be the next Sue!
Adorable too to see Maddie in the last pic… I only saw her when I skimmed the pics for a better look! Great photographs that show us that photographs are so important…
Lynn from For Love or Funny says:
Your creativity never fails to amaze me. I love your Sue Sylvester/Glee family getup!
Oh my GOD that Sue Sylvester costume is the BOMB!!! You guys look great! Wow, look at those eyes on your monkey Maddie, just stunning.
Love the costumes, both of them!!! The kids all look so cute in their costumes! Loved seeing the last one as well. Sweetest sock monkey ever!!
You guys look terrific! Most of the Glee actors are on twitter, you should send these pics to them.
Loved what you picked for HALLOWEEN!!
Annie is so adorable!!
We are HUGE Gleeks… awesome costumes!
Hiding the candy you procure is totally in the spirit of Hallowe’en Heather, I’ve already stashed my favourites… you know, for the safe of the kids. I hear too much candy is bad for them.
Four Gambel Girls and a guy - documenting the adventures we call life says:
So glad you keep leaving pictures of Maddie for us to see. If I have a lump in my throat…..I can’t imagine what you go through everyday. They are both precious and just know that we are always rooting for you!
SUE SYLVESTER. I love it. Great costume!!!!
Adventures In Babywearing says:
That is genius.
Sue Sylvester, perfect. You guys made the perfect Glee cast.
Too cute! I love seeing the pictures of Maddie as well.
Sarah R says:
Aw, she’s adorable!!! Love the pics and different costumes. Also, sweet pic of Maddie.
I wondered what the famous Annie would be this Halloween!! She is sooo cute and funny!!!
I’m sure yesterday was a very bitter/sweet day for you guys. I know how much you loved having Halloween with Madeline. I am so sorry Maddie wasn’t able to be with you in person but I’m KNOW she was there in spirit.
When I looked at last yrs pictures and compared them with THIS year’s picture, I couldn’t help but cry! As I looked at both pictures of all the kids, I could helop but noticed how much they had all grown and changed!! And, like you I wondered how Maddie would look lke now.
Any ways, I guess what I just wanted you to know is I’m
here for you and Mike during this most DIFFICULT time for you all. Sending you warms hugs, endless friendship and unconditional love. Thinking of yourf and wishing you all well.
Maddie was the cutest little sock monkey ever! Her little sis is adorable too =)
Best. Costume. Ever.
Awesome costume, good choice Annie!! You all look great and glad everyone had a good day!
Lisa @ early morning run says:
Aww! Such an adorable crew and sounds like a ton of fun!
Jen L. says:
Also, I’m sure people tell you this all the time, but you and Mike are so absolutely perfect for each other. It’s nice to see.:)
love love love … sounds like so much fun!
Once again, you have made my day. Best costume EVER!!
You guys are so hilarious! I can’t wait to see what next year brings…
Love it!! Youngest Gleek ever, best Sue costume I’ve seen, all in all a great first Halloween!
LOVE mini-Sue. Funniest costumes I’ve seen this Halloween. I am so sending this like to all of my Glee friends!
Damaris @Kitchen Corners says:
why didn’t I think of that? I know, because I’m not as awesome as you! Best costume ever. Annie is so adorable.
ps. please please please make a movie of you and Mike acting like Rachel and Finn.
You guys are amazing. I love the way you dress Annie up and I can’t wait until you do a wig day and you try all the wigs on Annie. I want to see her in the regge wig.
OMG !!! SUE SYLVESTER !!! You guys were great as the Glee cast !!! Annie looked SO great in the Sue costume, and Maddie was adorable in the sock monkey outfit ! SUCH great pics !!
I have A LOT of candy that my girls will never be able to finish. I’m more than willing to send you some!
The Sue Sylvester costume is so creative!
OMG…best.costume.EVER!!!! My tummy hurts from laughing so hard
Ah! I love it! Annie and I clearly think alike. This year I’m super preggers, and I tried for months to find a Cheerios costume! I thought going as super pregnant Quinn would be hilarious. Sadly, it didn’t work out, so my goal is to find a costume for next year and go as Brittany and our daughter can go as Sue. Where’d you find the baby tracksuit?
Ok, I think we need a post on how Mike is in nirvana now that the Giants have won the world series. I hope that you got photos.
That is the cutest costume idea ever. That little wig is cracking me up.
Liz Baker says:
Mike is one good husband/daddy for going along with this one. You should definitely keep him around.
I love both of Annie’s costumes! How adorable!!
Annie’s costume makes me wish I would’ve dressed up this year, man! I think she may have the coolest costume I’ve seen in years. My kiddo was sick this year, and he keeps asking me when we’re trick or treating…so I’m gonna have to rally the troops and ask them to put on a faux Halloween this weekend. He’ll never know the difference, except that we went to Target today and the Christmas stuff was up, with Halloween nowhere to be seen.
Annie’s just the cutest alien! Excellent idea on Glee! LOVE it!
Brilliant. Wish I had thought of that! You guys rock.
Rumour Miller says:
Your Annie and my Quinn (and errr, myself) dressed as the same Toy Story character! Super Cute.
Our entire family was the Toy Story cast.
Great choice of costumes!
Love both of Annie’s Halloween costumes! =D Especially the Sue Sylvester one. Beautiful photos of Annie & Maddie’s Halloween. How beautiful of Annie to be surrounded by Maddie’s friends and now hers.
