Just kidding. You know I can't quit you.
Anyhoo, I loved loved LOVED Josephine's costume because:
1) I made it
2) It was adorable (see reason 1)
3) I was the same thing at her age, and I'm nothing if not vain (see reasons 1 and 2)
4) JEREMY was the one who decided she should be a cave girl/Pebbles
So, all in all, blue ribbons and gold stars on that costume.
"Luckily" is the right word to use there, right? Yes. Right.
So, I pinned some winners onto my new Halloween Costumes board (because, why did I NOT have one of these before?), and even though I might need to pop out a few more babies to make these Halloween dreams come true, I'm totally committed to that.
Here are my top picks:
1. Cabbage Patch Kid
Oh my god oh my god oh my god -- if you have a kid whose cheeks are always getting pinched? Some yarn and a Cabbage Patch t-shirt, and you have an awww-worthy costume.
3. Wayne and Garth
i.e., another reason for me to wish for twins. Or just kids really close in age, I guess. No, twins. Sorry, Jeremy.
4. A Rockford Peach
Although I'm sure Jeremy and I would spend the entire night asking each other "Can you read, honey?" and shouting "THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!" I think this costume would SOOO be worth it.
5. Tiny Lucy
I actually have a feeling we might be able to do this in a few years with Josephine and use her natural hair. :) Now we just have to practice that look.
6. Where the Wild Things Are Cast
Even though this would require cooperation on Jeremy's part, and those wild thing heads look a little past my DIY skills, I still have high hopes for this one. Also, I'm pretty sure my little sister just had a stroke when she looked at this, so she might be willing to help.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: How could you NOT love Halloween?
