As we were discussing costumes, Nate brought up the fact that I "forced" him to be a Pirate two years in a row. I told him he was wrong that he was only a pirate for one year and I could prove it so I went digging through photos and thought I would share.
Josh -2009. A Sock Monkey
Nate - 2010. A Giraffe
Josh 2010. An Elephant (Seriously, this is my favorite "Josh" costume ever even though he wouldn't keep the head on because the truck covered his face!)
Josh- 2011. A Train Engineer
Nate- 2011. A Scarecrow. (This is my favorite "Nate" costume. If I could dress him like this every year, I would HA!)
Josh - 2012. A Fireman
Nate 2012 - A Race car Driver
Nate 2013 - A Pirate
Josh 2013 - A Pirate
Nate and Josh 2014 . . .Pirates (Do you notice something . .. Nate has a very good memory. He was a pirate two years in a row!)
Nate - 2015. A Dinosaur
Josh 2015. A Vampire
Josh - 2016. A Power Ranger
Nate - 2016. A Power Ranger
Yep. I was wrong and Nate was right. As we looked at the photos I remembered the story (except I remember it slightly different than Nate does!). Nate wanted to be a dinosaur so I ordered him a dinosaur costume but he did not like it. I returned it so I could get a full refund prior to Halloween. He couldn't decide what he wanted to be so he just ended up being a pirate again. Josh, on the other hand, wanted to be a pirate two years in a row.
Have the boys decided what they want to be for 2017? Josh is pretty much set and Nate is still thinking. Either way, I won't reveal it until the first Halloween Activity at the end of September!
