It's Costume Time!
So this week, we kicked up the Halloween costume planning.
Princess is going to be Dorothy again. (Wizard of Oz) and I am going to Glinda. This was a last minute change of plans, but I think it will be great because Princess really wanted me to dress up with her last year, but the cost of a costume or the aggravation of sewing one won out and I was a football player (In Superman's old jersey).
The older boys have no idea what they want to do. MVP is torn between feeling too old and...really wanting to trick-or-treat. I told him to go for it while he still can!
Sugar decided to wear his first Communion tux to be James Bond on the condition that I dye his hair black. You know what I said: "Rock on!" But now he is worried that's not scary enough and is looking at some of the Marvel villains.
Turkey is going to be an elephant because MIL made the sweetest elephant costume for MVP when he was little and I cannot stand how adorable they are in it. It even has ears and a soft trunk made of stuffed felt. Seriously, there is nothing cuter! Check out the picture of MVP in it. Notice the sweet giraffe too. Also courtesy of MIL. That woman deserves a badge!
As for Superman, well of course I would love for him to just go as Superman, but I don't want to make all the ladies at the church trunk-or-treat go crazy at the sight of him in his tight garb, so I think I am going to fix him up with a black shirt and a mask and let him be Zorro. I heart Zorro!
Can you tell we are CRAZY for Halloween around here? Seriously. We cannot wait! I'd love to hear what you all are dressing up as. I can always use some inspiration.
