Historical Halloween

It was a historic, politically incorrect year for us. Not quite sure how it happened, but that’s how it went down.

So, may I present Sacagawea…

Ane as Sacagawea

… and her baby, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau.

With baby Jean Baptiste

She was accompanied on her trick-or-treating trip across the North end and Eastside by Davy Crockett…

Davy Crockett

… who had issues with wearing his coonskin cap, but was willing to wear it in exchange for handling his father’s .22 rifle.

Armed, but not dangerous

The rifle was unloaded. I don’t think we actually own any ammo for that particular rifle yet.

Anyway, together these two traveled the wet hills of the Northwest in search of candy.

Happy Halloween!

And they found plenty. The expedition was a success and will resume again next year.

    Tad didn’t take the rifle with him while trick-or-treating did he?

    I find historic figures completely politically correct! Good job!

    I loved the pictures! I’ll bet they’ll prove to be some of the favorites years from now! Maybe Ane can use the same costume next year and have a REAL Baby Charbonneau! But maybe not on her back!

    WOW, great costumes!! Talk about twin cuteness. And now I’ve got “Davy Crockett” singing in my head.
