It used to be all about me. My costume inspirations. My pumpkin carving skills. My beautifully decorated sugar cookies.
Well. This year I let the little people take charge and guess what? Halloween survived without me. Seriously. Who needs sugar cookies?
Look what they came up with all on their own...
Jake designed his own zombie costume. It was bloody. It was scary. His newly-installed oral hardware added a sinister gleam. I offered to buy any ortho-threatening candy for 5 cents a piece. But Brad doubled my offer and Jake is no dummy.
Sam was all set with a Harry Potter costume...or so I thought. Five minutes before the kindergarten bus, he burst into tears and refused to wear the robe, the lightning bolt or the Hogwarts tie.
The only costume that made him happy was this dinosaur costume which once belonged to Jake. At age 3. It was so snug, we called Sam "Wedgiesaurus." He was thrilled with himself.
Brad does not dress up. He wears plaid and denim and watches the Phillies.
The highlight of my week was meeting up with my blog buddy, Jessica. (Yes, she really is this pretty!) Next year she's going to come trick-or-treating with me and we're going to wear matching costumes and spray our hair blue.
