Going for the Gold

Don't even for one second think that I had to coax Dale into dressing up as pair figure skaters for Halloween this year. He was just as enthusiastic about bringing back the spirit of Lillehammer '94 as I was. What can we say? We love the Olympics, almost as much as we love making costumes and Gold!

To answer your questions:
1. Yes, Dale is wearing my mom's wig.
2. Yes, my mom has a wig (about 5 more where that came from).
3. We found Dale's gold lamme leggings at Savers in the "Activewear" section.
4. The leg warmers Dale is wearing are the shirt sleeves from the turtleneck he has on.
5. Yes, I knew before Halloween night that I would be a mere accessory to Dale's ensemble.
6. We, meaning Dale, made the skates out of 2X4s and painted them.
7. My skates were much sturdier than Dale's, so I did not have to walk around like Frankenstein on Ice all night...like someone else I know.
8. Dale's costume worked very nicely with his karaoke rendition of "Sara Smile" by Hall and Oats that evening.
9. My costume did not go quite as well with my karaoke versions of "Say My Name," by Destiny's Child, and "Carrying the Banner," from the Newsies Soundtrack.
10. Yes, I felt a little chubby in suntan tights and teased bangs.
11. Yes, I think it will be tough to top next year. But, I still think we can!

The following is just to prove that Dale is pretty amazing on skates in general. Check out this awesome jump at Classic Skating last week. We have an equal love for Disco Rollerskating and other stuff junior high kids like.

I'm quite sure you have a really fun life ahead of you! You are a lucky chick. And Dale pretty much won the lottery. :)
