Nightmare Before Christmas

This turned out to be such a fun theme! Halle found an amazing Jack Skellington dress that kicked off the whole thing. I think in the beginning only Halle was really excited about it. But by Halloween we were all fully on board! I think everyone looks amazing. And it was so much easier to…

September 2020 recap
