Getting Ready!

Since Halloween is just around the corner, my son and I went out costume looking tonight. I usually have my costume picks for the family decided upon months in advance, but I don't think my choices are going to work this year.

For years I have wanted to do a Willy Wonka (1971) theme with my son as an Oompa Loompa, my bro as Wonka, my hubby as Grandpa Joe, and me as Violet Beauregard. But, I don't think it's going to work since I would have to put sooo much work into it. I would probably have to make my blueberry suit and then get together all the necessary pieces to make each of our outfits work. It's just not going to be possible. Oh well.

So, I think we are going with Star Wars this year. There quite a few costumes since Episode III just came out a few months ago. And my son is the perfect height for Yoda!!! Or he could be Anakin...I'm not sure yet. My hubby is talking about being Vader, Chewbacca, the Emperor, or just some Jedi knight...again, we're not sure! There are a lot of options for all of us, but it's all about how much we want to spend. I've found a Yoda outfit for $25, but that seems a little steep for just an evenings use. So now I am looking through eBay. I hope I find something soon since Halloween is only 42 days away!!! I'm soooo running out of time!

(Btw, can you tell this is my fav holiday?! Heehee!)

Sounds like fun. I like the idea of everyone having a common theme in the costumes.

My daughter chooses what she wants to be way in advance. This year it is Harriet Potter. I have knitted her a Griffendor scarf and aquired glasses and a wand. I just need a robe. I think I'm gonna have to sew it.

WE were gonna have my son be a dragon but the costume didn't fit. He is temporarily a monkey(on clearance at Sams), unless we find something better.

Hey there Trinity dear, feel free to post the info from my blog to your if you want. You really should check out the pdf report for the GLBT supporting companies. It goes into a lot of detail that isn't on my post.

Yeah, there are other brands out there just as good or better than Johnson and Johnson and the others. How quickly our country is going into the toilet with the voices of the minority overshadowing the voice of the majority b/c nobody speaks up.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Emily wanted to be Ariel so I got her the Ariel costume, then she wanted to be Pocahantas. I told her too bad. She'd have to stick with Ariel. She wants red hair but I'm not going to buy a wig. I think I'll dye her hair with red koolaid. Anyone know how to do that?

It would prob be better to use red spray in for her hair. If you use koolaid, it will leave red spots on your daughters me, I know! Heehee!
