Costumes


I will start by saying that I am not a big fan of Halloween. In the next few weeks you will surely get a rant from me about how much I dislike the nastiness this holiday. As much as I would like to ignore the whole sugar filled, scary endeavor I don't want to deprive my kids. Ok, back on track...

I am usually of the mind that Halloween costumes are something that can be made on the cheap or bought at the end of Halloween for a song. That is what I have done for the girls previous three Halloweens. This year I felt like it was time to let my monkeys choose. We sat down with a couple of magazines that came early and the girls mulled it over. After about two weeks of being all over the place they finally commit. Abby will be her beloved Jessie (from Toy Story) and Grace will be Buzz Lightyear.

I popped on Amazon, bought the costumes and blushed when I paid almost $50 for two costumes (last years costumes cost me $8 at the end of the previous year for two costumes from the Gap). Oh well... it was worth it. When the costumes came and they tried them on I quickly realized we had winners. They were elated with their choices. Grace ran around the house screaming "to infinity and beyond". I have to say I am actually looking forward to halloween a little bit this year. :D

Halloween costumes is one more area where the mommy wars can play out. There are the "I make my kids costume from scratch and would NEVER buy a premade one" crew and the "gotta have the best costume out there, get out the wallet" crew. I'm with you--what's cheap and what will make the monkey happy for a bit. The girls look great!

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
