This halloween I wish I could say that I made the kids costumes, but alas I did not. It turns out that I am not actually 'Supermom', Newsflash! But I do think that they look darling! I cannot wait for the next year or so when we transistion over to the kids coming up with their own costumes from scratch. I will of course help the execution until they are old enough to do it themselves. It's just that this year Kent and I were reminicing about when we were kids. Your costume was a hodge podge of old dress up stuff, or made by your mom, but NEVER bought! My Mom encouraged us to think up our own most years. I seem to remeber my sister being the most inventive. Nicole was a paper bag princess one year, AUTHENTICILY ! I don't think she wore more then her undies under those safeway paper bags and I do believe that a stapler was a great aid several times thta day at school! Those are the things I can't wait for. To see my kids use their imaginations fearlessly! But for now I will just love their cute little selves in their chosen, store bought costumes. Evan was so excited to be this giraffe you could hardly contain him! Vienna Was a bumble bee. And bee's don't say "buzzz" they say "beeezzz" according to her! And then there is Seger!! He is so cute walking with those chubby thighs in this penguin costume I just couldn't get enough!! The two were just a perfect fit. The little tail on the back was pricless with his little chubby guy waddle.
