Contest! Go Go!!

Year 1:

Eliot was supposed to be a pea pod (didn't come home on time, blah blah). Charlie was a stinkin' cute carrot. Peas and Carrots. Minus the peas.

Year 2:


The monkey and banana
Year 3:

One of my top 5 favorite Eliot pics! Do you see her desperation? Only more pronounced given his calm confidence. (that's not even close to what's really going on but man, it looks awesome!)

Lisa and I have chosen year 4. We're painfully aware that our opportunity to choose their costumes is drawing to a close so we were very particular this year. In honor of our last hoo-rah, we're hosting a contest to see who can guess the famous duo for the theme this year! The closest guess will get a fall-related basket of goodies that, trust me, YOU REALLY WANT!

The contest will last from today until August 31st at midnight. (How very official!) You may guess more than once. You may guess on our blog or Lisa's. Jake and Russ may not participate. Purchase is not required and rules are subject to change.

Dora and Diego? Peanut Butter and Jelly? Hotdog and ketchup? Ham and cheese? Ok, now I'm just hungry.

Eliot from ET and Drew Barrymore's character. Charlie looks so much like DB in that movie and well, Eliot is Eliot! That would be kinda hard to pull off, but don't they trick or treat in that movie??? I remember the sheet, but I can't remember if that was ET or Eliot. Ok, I must got to bed, but I'm gonna keep guessing I tell ya.

Because I only have Star Wars on the brain as I hunt down Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda costumes, I'm going with Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker.

I am going to disqualify myself (this is Jake's sister Sarah) since I was there when you and Lisa were texting ideas back and forth and she was asking Jake his opinion. But I think it will be super cute, although some of these suggestions are really good too!

I just thought of another one as I was getting ready this morning and could hear the sounds of Fisher watching his favorite show. How about Handy Manny and Kelly? And don't you think they should just get together and get it over with? Everyone knows they're secretly in lo-oo-ove! ;)
