I should start off by saying that Brynt and I are not really big on Halloween. Don’t get me wrong, it is tons of fun and who doesn’t like candy? but we aren’t big fans of anything scary so Halloween gets a little neglected around here. This year we have Camberlyn though and we wanted to make sure that she had a wonderful time.
So we started getting in the Halloween spirit by carving pumpkins for family night last week. She loved it!
And finally the day came, and it was time to get dressed up!
I am going to give a little back story on our costumes. Brynt’s favorite movie in the whole world is “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” ( the old one with Gene Wilder because that one is the best), He can pretty much quote the entire thing with out missing a line, especially if it is a line from the Candy Man himself. So to say it has been a life long dream of his to be Willy Wonka is kind of an understatement. And if Brynt was going to be Willy Wonka that meant Cam had to be an Umpa Lumpa, and I needed to be the candy! I had so much fun putting our costumes together and we all had a great time being the Wonka Family 🙂
