mexican freestyle wrestling.


it was the warmest october 31st in northern utah that i can remember, for which fox was extremely grateful.  he was able to pull off the bare-chested look like a stallion, which really was essential to preserving the integrity of the ensemble.




indiana clark, auntie juice, auntie chubbs, luchador y mama.


cousin jenna was tink.  auntie chubbs approved.


cousin abby the octopus and gramma linda.

celebrating halloween with our family was not the only purpose of our trip.  fox and i also came to utah to once again lay claim to our mutt, who'd been shackin' up with my oh-so-gracious folks while we finished up our mexico city livin'.  



i love my dog, i really do, but he really put my love to the test when he copped a squat and deposited a fresh, steamy turd on the polished floor of the salt lake international airport while walking through security.  and i didn't notice until i had carried my butterball baby, my cowering dog and my wreck-of-a-self onto our flight and taken our seats that my barn door had been wide open for who knows how long.  not sure how many people i offended that day.

Oh my gosh! That is horrible! Gunther you are a naughty dog!

Fox looks awesome! I personally love the man-boobs. Becks and Fox could start a man-boob club.

You look fabulous E! I want your bangs. Seriously, mine are out of control....

I love that you have a "healthy" little boy too:) He is so cute! That first picture is classic! I love his little tummy rolls!

A and L said...

i'd classify fox's ensemble under "righteous."

Amy said...

Man boobs make the costume, for sure. Where is your costume? If I may quote you from last year, "A Burton dresses up."

melanie said...

Melanie Williams said...

Erin -- I just had to tell you that I've shown several people this week Fox's Halloween costume. I love it! Can I post a photo (with a link back to you) on my blog? If not, no worries but I think it would be fun to share since it's the world's best halloween costume.

Any luck with housing???

Awesome costume Fox! Umm...bummer about the dog. I was forgot to mention on our san diego blog adventures that I unbuttoned my pants to ease my seat belt discomfort and walked into the gas station like that...Yeah I was feeling like a million bucks when I looked down and realized I was exposing some white. Not to mention it was a pretty creepy area of LA...
Glad to know I am not alone in this world and have found camaderie with you yet again.

Utah-style Halloweenie. Love the wrestler. So hot. Great times with the fam. NICE

Brittney Rae Daniel Liechty said...

Ok this is awesome. Love it...all of it. I'm glad your Halloween was a hit. Did Fox keep his mask on the whole time? Impressive E. You have some mad sewing skills. Mrs. Hawks would be proud. Sorry about Gunther's incident.

old me.
