This is the first year that the boys have picked out their own Costumes and, yes, I will admit that I think picking out costumes is fun for me too. I find Halloween to be a fun holiday - my kids will ask me "What is Halloween for?" and I will always reply, "Free Candy!" . I would like to decorate my hard a little bit but I think I need to play a little earlier for that :-/
Anyway, Nate told me he wanted to be a dragon and Josh said a ghost. We went to Party City and looked at what they had. Josh quickly changed his mind and wanted to be a Pirate (which I was glad because I didn't want to have to make a ghost costume HA). We tried on the one dragon costume but it did not fit Nate at all. Nate picked out another pirate costume but was a little disappointed. The next day I went onto the website and found a dragon costume and, so I could be mother of the year, ordered it. When it came, Nate was so excited, tried it on and seemed to like it but then . . .looked at me and said, "I really don't like this, I want to be a Pirate". Seriously? Oh well!
So, here are my two Pirates. :-)
