You may or may not remember our costumes from last year.
I had a lot of fun making them, and had hoped to make it a tradition. However, last year I started in early September and didn't finish the last costume until the morning of October 31st. That means, if I'm going to make good and make it a tradition, I'd better get started yesterday. Or at least by next week.
I was struggling to come up with a fun sort of theme. The kids (coughcoughBRIAcoughcough) aren't too hip on the whole theme idea, anyway, and all have pretty definite ideas of what they would like to be this Halloween. But I thought of a way to make them all work together in a sneakily thematic sort of fashion, and I don't think even Bria will mind too much.
Bria wants to be Susan/Ginormica from Monsters vs. Aliens.
Chloe wants to be a cowgirl.
Sophia wants to be a skunk. (No idea where she's getting this idea, but there you go.)
So, we're doing a kids' movie kind of theme. We've got Ginormica. Then we've got Jessie, the yodeling cowgirl from Toy Story 2, and we even have Stella the Skunk from Over the Hedge.
Now, what will Joel and I be?
That is the conundrum.
