a few weeks ago. So now we have a sad little Thomas the Train sitting in our garage waiting for their birthday.
All my creativity had been sucked out of me for the boys' costume so I didn't come up with the idea for mine until 4:30 on Tuesday when I posted this video on my facebook page. Really, it came down to me having a black dress, the little dog purse and red shoes already. The only thing I had to buy was red gloves, the cigarette holder, fake fur and white hair spray. I spent less than $20 on my costume. Score!
B, on the other hand, knew what he was going to be for weeks. He'd decided to be the Geico money man and had finished gluing the money on his costume the week before Halloween (overachiever.)
He tied for 3rd at our Halloween party, the girl who got first had a pretty great costume and there was a lot of competition this year...and our newish neighbors probably think that we're crazy. B was running up and down the street in his costume when they came out their front door. And some other neighbors came out to see what he was doing - but those ones know we're loco.
Back at home, we just chilled and cuddled on the couch most of the night. Finally, B decided to carve Peanut's pumpkin because he wanted roasted seeds.
It's a little annoying that I stayed up so late at the beginning of the week making a costume that wasn't even used, but I'm only annoyed at myself for waiting until Monday to make Thomas - I'd known what they were going to be for weeks.
I'm happy Bug feels better, although Peanut ended up with it over the weekend so our house is constant runny noses and tissues right now.
