Riley adores Halloween. She reads her Halloween books constantly. She likes pumpkins and candy of course, but she really has a thing for "mon-ters." It's adorable the way she'll point to herself exclaim "mon-ter" and "rar!" in her sweet little voice. Both kids love Halloween. Mike and I have a lot of fun with it. This year I decided to start early picking and procuring costumes.
I still get most of the say in Riley's so she'll be Rainbow Brite: It's just the dress so I'll be getting a proper violet hair ribbon and these. Viola! Rainbow Brite.
Isaac's pick is MUCH more difficult (of course). First he just said he wanted to be a bug. Visions of pipe cleaner atennae and face paint and general cuteness filled my mind. After a moment of reflection though he refined his request to a praying mantis. Hmmm...Lime green attire no biggie, but distinctive arms and jaw will be trickier. You never know though I thought last years Marty McFly was going to be a challenge, but once I had the orange vest we were golden.
