Halloween Recap

In response to requests, here are the kids in their Halloween regalia. As you can probably tell, DQ was very into it. WB was, shall we say, not.

DQ as Violet from The Incredibles.

WB as Peter Pan. Sort of. Wouldn't wear the hat or the belt. But this was far better than his previous attempt, which was that he wanted to be the Grumpy Old Troll from Dora the Explorer. And he insisted for several weeks this was the only thing he wanted to be. Until Halloween, of course, when he woke up and told us he wanted to be a T-rex. No, kid. You can wear the homemade makeshift Grumpy Old Troll costume (yellow sweats, drawn on beard and spiky messy hair), or you can wear something from your dress-up drawer. Spouse managed to get him into a portion of the Peter Pan outfit. Which evidently was better than half of the parents in his class did.

DQ was the same way at that age... she was supposed to be a pirate, but refused the hat, the earring, the eyepatch, and the vest. Hence, she was in a white blouse and black pants. (K-lyn said she was dressed as a waiter at an upscale restaurant.)

And now we shal plow through the never-ending supply of goodie bags from here until Easter.

second child, age 2: wanted to be an elephant
lovingly created by mommy from oversized grey sweatshirts
wore everything except the HEAD
(so, pretty much he went as Strongsad from, yep : P)

I was so spoiled, kid#1 LOVED Halloween. Of course, I never ask any of them what they want to be until a week before at the earliest, and aim for about three days before, so they have less time to fuss about it ;P.

This year Child 2 wanted to be an "Awktwoopah"--thank goodness Daddy translated, I thought he'd said "octopus" and you can imagine if I had produced an octopus costume when he wanted to be a Clone Wars Arc(?sp) Trooper! Luckily Jantzen Beach still had the costume Halloween morning.

When Gayle was younger she refused to wear a puppydog costume that Grandma bought for her because it had a head on the hood and she thought it was a toy and it was "wrong" to wear it.
