It's Official!

Sheep, 2005
Lions, 2006

I don't know about the rest of you with young children, but with Halloween being less than six weeks away, the *C*O*S*T*U*M*E* decision is looming large around here. This is the first time that K & O really have a handle on what Halloween is all about. They seem to forget the candy part (strange little three year olds, aren't they?!!), but they definitely remember the costume part. They are old enough now to decide for themselves what they want to be. And, over the past couple of weeks they've been unequivocally consistent. So, as of today, it is OFFICIAL. By their own choosing (I really don't remember how they got this idea into their head), Kyle and Owen are going to be... Thing 1 and Thing 2 from The Cat in the Hat. They are also clear and consistent on this: Owen will be Thing 1, and Kyle will be Thing 2. Costume figuring-out has begun. The only thing the boys are adamant about: They say that they need new Crocs to wear as part of their costumes (?? where they got this idea, I have no idea). The only thing they've been wavering on: what color the new Crocs will be (red seems the obvious choice to me, but they're all over the map--- yellow? blue? purple?). The last two Halloweens I've thought that it could not possibly get any better (K & O have been soooo into Halloween both years)... but I have a sneaking suspicion that at age 3 Halloween might be even more fun this year!

Your boys are so cute! The Thing 1-Thing 2 thing (as it were) has captivated my twins, too. That was their costume last year, and they've announced they want to do it again (they are also three this year). I have a pic of the costumes I made on one of my blogs but I can't figure out how to give you a direct link -- go to and scroll way down to the Halloween entry if you're interested. You'll be posting pics of yours, of course, right?

I cannot wait to see this!! And my girls are going to go nuts for it! Are you going to make them? I did the last two years but this year I'm only making one and buying the other. I just posted about this last night. BTW, Summer and Aubrey were sheep their first Halloween too :-) said...

We haven't done the halloween thing because the girls were petrified of all the funny customes last year. I'm going to try it again this year. Maybe I should involve the girls in the costume choice?! What do you think?

Oh my Gosh!! They are going to be waaaaay too sweet in those! Are you going to spray their dreds blue with that washable stuff? :)
I saw the CUTEST little skunk costume and might dress Mal as my littel "stinker" :)
