Halloween is coming soon, and we are Halloween people in this house. For 3 years, I've tried to get a theme going with the kids' costumes. And for 3 years, I've had opposition from the troops.
The first year, I was able to dress the twins as Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, but Connor insisted on being Curious George.
Last year, I tried for the Toy Story gang - Connor really wanted to be Buzz. In my stupidity, I asked the twins what they wanted. Duh. I ended up with Dora and Handy Manny. Hmpf.
This year, since the Buzz costume still fit, I was pushing for Woody and Jessie for the twins.
But Connor wants to be Phineas, of Phineas and Ferb.
And the twins - well they got ahold of a costume catalog, and want to be.... everything.
Strawberry Shortcake, the Yellow Wiggle, a pair of crayons, a dragon,
a witch, 3 different princess, you get the idea.
Until Grammy brought home two costumes from a local consignment shop.
