I am trying to be proactive (the adjective, not the acne treatment) about Halloween this year. This way if the kids want to be something weird, I will have weeks to find Ebay and thrift store deals to piece together their costumes.
Luke wants to be an In-n-Out employee. That's fine as long as it doesn't turn prophetic of what his life career will be. I found this one online and actually got excited about how easy it will be.
Next, I asked Charlie. Since he is 2, he screamed his answer at me -
"TALKING FRENCH FRIES!!"
What? Not only is that dorky, but he's going to have to wear a name tag for anyone to know what he is. I found this one online from the Pottery Barn for only $100 -
It's cute, but not $100 cute. I just checked Ebay and people are actually bidding $100 on this costume. Silly people. If I'm going to spend $100 on my child's costume it better be for something like Darth Vadar with a real light saber. Charlie wants Erik to be "ketchup and mustard" and me to be a hamburger. He laughed for a long time at himself.
Don't hate me, but I'm trying to talk my kids into being Woody and Buzz this year using borrowed costumes. I know it's generic, but I'm tired and it sounds easier than making a french fry costume out of yellow pool noodles.
