How’s THAT for a face? She totally is at school today with the colored hairspray in her hair. I was entirely too tired to wash and dry her hair last night. It could also have been the chocolate headache I had. Who knew a Snickers bar could take me down?
(Didn’t stop me from eating 2 more, though.)
Benjamin WAS going to be Thomas the Tank Engine AGAIN (3rd year running), but once we walked into the Halloween store he dropped that idea — FAST. He wanted to be a “thooper hee-woah”. Specifically “Fwash”. Husband was in charge of figuring that one out while I helped Leah find her Vampiress costume. Shopping the day before Halloween is an AWESOME idea, by the way. They should have an open bar at that place next time – to make it even more spectacular.
Well, “Fwash” was not available any longer, so Spiderman it was. I swear he came home and wore that costume for three hours straight – WITH the mask. That’s the part that amazed me the most.
This year we amped up the outdoor decorations a tad. There may have been a fog machine purchased. We retired some goofy flickering pumpkins on stakes to add that effect and, when combined with two little strobe lights, from last year it was a killer porch. I even got a high-five from a 9-yr old and a tween.
The Tween Stamp of Approval. I WIN.
This Halloween goofiness doesn’t come from nowhere, you guys. It’s genetic. Check it:
Yep. That’s my mom. The Great Pumpkin. That’s also my dad. He’s a sailor.
Just go with it.
