My boys have already decided on their costumes:

#1 = Steve Irwin
#2 = Oscar Wilde
#3 = a barn

That last one should be fun to make!

My daughter is going to be a witch this year. Not sure why she settled on that, but hey, its easy right? The little one, well, he will either be a pumpkin or a chili pepper I think... trying to think of the little baby costumes that we already have on hand.

Nephews (3yrs, and 4yrs old) are gonna be Spiderman, and Batman. As for me I'll be an undead creature of some kind, mingling with the dead in my front yard grave yard, but it's getting to be such a low turn out each year, that I'll probably be scaling back a good bit, and I'm really thinking of packing it in all together in the near future, and hanging with my bro, and nephews on Halloween.

My older one wants to be a Jack-in-the-box. We passed an old jack-in-the-box restaurant the other day and he wanted to know why the building was square, why it wasn't still open (um. Couldn't tell him about the people there getting bludgeoned to death). Then he suddenly said, "I CAN BE A JACK IN THE BOX!" He's very creative. Last year he was a deviled egg (egg costume with devil horns. HUGE HIT!) and the year before he and the little one were m&ms. We always make 'em home made and simple, better that way. Plus, I'm an over-achiever like that. Typically I wait until October 30 and make the costume then.

So, nows I gots to find me a square box at the grocery store. We have a jester hat for him to wear, we have a crank for the side of the box and material to make for him to poke his head through. Should be a fun one.

But I'm thinking of recycling the M&M for the younger one.

My daughter is going to be super girl and my son is still undecided. He wants to be Ben 10, but all the costumes are too small for him. I tried to make him the outfit, but I can't find a green jacket anywhere! My main squeeze and I are going to be pirates! arg!
