2019: The Second Year of Harry Potter. If you can see this thestral, I'm sorry for your loss.
2018: The Year of Harry Potter. Buckbeak the famous hippogriff. No challenge too great for Ingrid!
2017: After visiting the totem poles on Haida Gwai, Wyatt asked his mom for a special costume.
2016: Thank goodness the Pokemon era is now past, but it did bring us Xernias, the mystical, immortal dear, Ingrid's crowning achievement to date. Just look at that crown!
2015: Wyatt wanted to be a Marine Iguana of all things. No problem for Ingrid. Here ya go, kid!
2014: Ingrid didn't make this one, but when your son wants a Hammer Head Shark costume and you find one online like this one, why would you test your luck?
2013: Ingrid's little black bear was the happiest, most cuddly bear in Montessori!
2012: This one was also a purchase. Wyatt was wild about Sea Turtles. Finding Nemo!
2011: Our first Halloween in our new house. We'd been living there about two months. We carried Wyatt around from house to house for a few blocks and then returned home. It was mostly for the pleasure of the parents.
Two years after his black bear Halloween, Wyatt still likes squeezing into his costume and getting to be a bear for a while.
