TT # 16
I am SOOO not a planner. I can't stand to think of things ahead of time, and then I can't stand myself when I get down to the last minute and have to come up with so
mething. I JUST came up with the Monkey's Halloween costume YESTERDAY. Yes. Yesterday. I told you ... not a planner.
My mother and I were talking yesterday about the possibilities, and how she always hated it when she told me to pick out what I wanted to be for that year. It always had to have a tail. Didn't matter what it was, as long as it had a tail, I was happy. One year, I was a mouse. The next year, I was a Siamese cat. I tried to get the Pink Panther out of her (she sewed all of my costumes) but I was not successful in the endeavor.
Then my mother said "well you could send them as two tree and the Man could be MacBeth." Or Hamlet ... or something. You Shakespereans can explain that one to me later. She commented that she was always ahead of her time when it came to Halloween costumes. She dressed my brother as Friar Tuck when he was in the fifth grade. She used a stocking and had a piece of flesh colored felt on it, and shoved it down over his head. I am certain my brother was mortified, wandering the halls of Lincoln Elementary in that getup.
So here are....
|Thirteen Costumes I Thought About For the Kids For Halloween1. Napoleon Dynamite for the Door Man|
2. Deb for Queen Bee
3. Pedro for the Monkey
4. A punk rocker for QB
5. A University of Ketucky cheerleader (this is a go for QB)
6. A scarecrow (a go for the Man)
7. A University of Kentucky football player (still up in the air on the Monkey ... yeah. TorT is Thursday night)
8. A fairy for the Monkey
9. A monkey ... for the Monkey
10. Cat in the Hat (the leftover cotume from last year for the Man; I was surprised that he said no)
11. Mork and Mindy .... for the older two, but wasn't sure what we could have done with the Monkey. We love themes at our house.
12. A Tbird and Two Pink Ladies. That might be next year's theme
13. Well .. I ran out of ideas. So only 12. Maybe you can give me an idea of what I should do next year.

I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
The nine-year-old who seems to be growing older every minute, has an opinion and a comment for everything, and has a true servant's heart.
The seven-year-old who loves the organization of things, will someday be someone's therapist because of his kind soul, and will more than likely be living with us until he is 40 years old.
The five-year-old with the 13-year-old attitude, who has a dictator's personality, asks you to watch her all the time and say "hold on" to keep your attention, and will someday come home on the back of some dude's motorcycle with 10 tatts and a body piercing or two.
The man of the house, the fixer of things, the winner of prizes, and the only person in his family to escape the South.
