This will be a post heavy with pictures. I've been unintentionally stockpiling. It's a busy costume-y time of year!
First, we got an amazing present in the mail a couple of weeks ago! Ann Wyse made this...
amazing clown costume and sent it to us! The boys LOVE it, and the little ones can't wait to get big enough to wear it. Little Elvis requested a blue and gray clown costume (a combo of his two favorite teams' colors) and she picked fabric with stars, which Bob loves, too!
Isn't he cute? He had his face painted at school that day, and it just happened to be a gray and blue star. Very appropriate!
This is Red Ribbon week at the boys' schools. They have to wear different things each day. And none of their costumes match up. It's been fun. On Monday, Cheese Puff had to dress like a scarecrow to scare drugs away. Or something like that. He told me this evening that, "You can't eat drugs, but you can eat bugs!" I'm not sure he's getting the point of this week. Anyway, here's what we came up with -- cutting up a paper bag. I think he looks pretty cute.
Here are their costumes for Halloween. Little Elvis is a touchdown. Cheese Puff is Scooby Doo wearing pajamas. Baby Plum is the Roadrunner, because why not?
We were trying to show off his tail. I thought the Roadrunner was purple, but he might be blue. Our Roadrunner is purple.
You can see his face better in this one.
Easiest. Costume. Ever! Thank you, Cheese Puff!
This was pretty easy, too. Although it does go against my rule of not buying costumes. It's an adult costume, and it was so perfect for him (and half off) that we had to get it. He loves it.
Ok, one final costume. Cheese Puff had to dress up as what he wants to be when he grows up. He wants to be a weatherman. We do not have little blazers his size. I was not buying one. So, he's an "every" weatherman. He's wearing his Lightning bolt shirt, a rain jacket, a toboggan and swim trunks. That's pretty much every weather. He LOVED it. I'm sure the folks at his school are used to our crazy family, and thought nothing of it.
