I can't NOT tell the stories and share the pictures! :)
We had a funny clown, an egyptian princess, and a transformer. Please don't ask me which transformer. Despite working with kids for 13 years, I can never keep the trains, dinosaurs, and special super heroes all straight.
My favorite part of this holiday is that I am usually pulling costumes, etc out of a box where they have been stored since I purchased them the year before at 50-80% off! :) I got so many good deals the year before last that I still have some unopened costumes and accessories to create new looks for 2011.
cheesing it up...even the transformer!
brax was so funny about it all. we had practiced with his costume a few days before just to make sure he would wear it. the material was pretty yucky and it was almost too small, but he liked it. he loved that hat and even had fun letting me put make-up on him. he liked standing on counter and looking at himself in the mirror while we worked. Can you tell he had been perfecting his "cheese"? My kids are no strangers to mommy with a camera!
headed for his first big go at raking in the loot. he was still stroller bound last year!
