Remember that I said I was going to be be the Chiquita Banana girl?
And TEN was going to be this Mexican of sorts?
Well, my costume arrived Friday. I found it on my neighbor's porch for some reason, but was pleased it had arrived in time. I ripped open the box, and pulled out the skirt. It was fabulous! The basket for my head...awesome. The maracas...100% authentic. The shirt....
Seriously. No shirt. Great. I almost cried, but I didn't. I told myself I really didn't care about Halloween anyway. I'm too old to care. I would just go to the party as T. So there!
Saturday morning TEN and I went to a few places to find some extra accessories for his Mexican costume. Along the way we found a witch's hat. And a plastic cauldron. I've never been a witch before. And so....
(me & Marilyn Monroe...witchy women)
And this wig:
Along the way, TEN found another costume. He's saving the Mexican until I can get my Chiquita Banana gig together.

Even Louis' Halloween costume had a bit of an issue. This year TEN insisted that Louis be something "manly". You may remember that last year Louis was this girl bumble bee:
Personally, I liked the girl costume better than the boy costume.
This year TEN picked Louis' costume. We ordered a Small, but apparently Louis is an extra small. I had to break out the needle & thread. It was the best I could do, and he wouldn't let me snap a photo with his ears on, but....

I giggled the whole way to day care today. I hope he wins :)
Happy Halloween friends! I hope your Halloween has more treats than tricks.
