Costumes... check!

Adam loves Halloween. He gets crazy. And it's totally my fault. Halloween is my favorite, and I have always gotten all crazy, and have in turn, passed it on to him. In the past, we've had fun making his costumes together, and as a result, his imagination has been allowed to run wild. As it should be. He's been a Dalmatian, a cat, and a dragon. All homemade. Last year he was determined to be blood, then a white blood cell, before finally settling on a 'superhero bat.'

This year he had envisioned some creature from Star Wars that has 4 arms. I was game to try and make it. We had plans. But then, all of a sudden, my already busy life became extraordinarily busy (more about that later). And as much as I wanted to make it, I knew I really wouldn't be able to find the time to make such an elaborate costume.

I didn't want to disappoint him, though, so I didn't tell him. I just started asking him about other possibilities.

Anyway, we headed down to D.I. today, and I casually mentioned to Adam that he might find a costume he liked.

He did:

Darth Vader.

He is one screaming, happy boy. I'm screaming happy, too, because a) I didn't let him down, and b) the entire costume cost $2.50. And after I cleaned and cleaned it (I may be cheap, but I'm still a germaphobe) he has worn it non-stop, and has determined he will wear it until he's 20. We now have Halloween costumes done.

D.O.N.E. Done.


This makes for Halloween happiness.

I'd post a pic, but he has forbidden me until Halloween. :)

(Oh, and lest you think I forgot about Miss Grace, she was taken care of last year: we got her costume clearanced at Target... she's going to be a pink cat. But, it didn't stop me from getting 2 totally adorable dress-up outfits today at D.I. for her, either).

Isn't she a doll?
