Was It Halloween Out There?
All our costumes were simple and low-key this year, and I liked that!
Jonas was two years ago. And the same pumpkin that Owen was five years ago. It's fun--and I feel the need for a photo montage of the three pumpkins. . .
I let him choose his feather out of a bag of multi-colored ones I had. Owen thought it needed to be red-but Jonas loved it.
I just sewed up Jeremy's Masters regalia about a foot to make Owen's Robe. He really wanted glasses, so on the day of our Halloween party Jeremy went to the mall and found a set of Harry Potter glasses and wand for like $10. (I can't argue I guess--he does bring home the bacon around here.) The sad thing was Owen had a really cool knobbly stick from the backyard for a wand, but when he saw the lumpy plastic one we couldn't convince him that his old one was way better.
For the party he wore my Griffindor t-shirt from back in the day (when I was a cool nerd) and his wizard cap. Of course three days later on Halloween night he couldn't find a wizzard hat in our house to wear--even though there are two of them. . . a mother can only do so much.
Come back next time to see what Jeremy and I were wearing (and the detailed description you will need in order to "get" what we are wearing at all!)
