Happy Halloween! We love this holiday because it’s just fun. Usually we come up with outfits at the last minute, but every once in awhile they are well-thought out in advance thanks to friends. This year some friends decided to raid Erica’s old closet full of ice skating uniforms from her days as a professional back in high school. These early 90’s outfits were amazingly constructed by her mother. There were sparkly crystals, soft velvet, and outrageous patterns, not to mention lace and see-thru gauzy fabric. Yes, most people thought we were gymnasts from the recent summer olympics, but we had a great time anyway! Although we thought it would be great for Erik to join in and wear a uniform based on the movie Blades of Glory with Will Ferrell we decided it would take more than 24 hours and expertise sewing skills which neither of us possess. This meant he got to be our coach! We think he liked bossing us around.

We had to do individuals, it was too fun!
Colleen’s husband, Evan didn’t really match our outfits, but we thought it was such a funny costume we had to include it!
