we're off to see the Wizard...

Halloween is right around the corner and I have nailed down a theme for me and my boys:


Our Cast:
Mama - Dorothy
Big A - Scarecrow
Moose - Tin Man
Squirt - Cowardly Lion

My mom is helping with the details (and costumes). She found a lion, a gray sweatsuit for our Tin Man, and raffetta for our Scarecrow. She is planning on making me a skirt & apron for my costume OR I'm hoping a friend comes through with an outfit (her friend has one I maybe could borrow).
I'm very excited!! I've wanted to do this since Moose's first Halloween when I saw another mom do this with her kids. :) And my mom has a small dog we may take along as Toto (or at least get a photo with) and my older sister may go out with us as either Glenda the Good Witch, the Wicked Witch of the West, or a Munchkin (I say one of the first ones but she said - I think jokingly - the latter).

What are you (or your family) going to be this year?

My family will be as follows.

I will be a nun. (I always wanted to be a pregnant nun!) Husband will be a priest and we will have 2 little angels with us. I like mine the best and then just decided on their costumes after figuring out mine. Because i do things backwards like that!

Its so different over here, it's not such a big deal although it's getting bigger, and people assume you have to dress up as something scary. You would be looked at quite strangely if you turned up to a party as dorothy...
Over from SITS happy halloween - sounds fab!

You guys are awesome!

My 3 year old wants to be Buzz Lightyear, so we are going with the Toy Story Theme. I am dressing up his little brother as Woody. Then I am dressing up like Jesse and Honey Daddy is going to be Zurg. It will be such a hoot!
