Here's how I feel about Halloween.
It's spooky, dark, and decidedly disturbing - for the most part.
Here's how I feel about dressing up.
As such, we dress up on October 31st (and on a lot of other days throughout the year too).
We don't do creepy costumes (witches, vampires, devils, etc.), but we do like to try on clothes and pretend.
In fact, one day I hope to have a handmade wooden chest just for dress-up clothes (scarves, hats, glasses, props, old-fashioned dresses, and other fun stuff). A full length mirror and natural lighting would be nice too - for photographs.
Here's a sneak peek at what you'll see us in this year.
The littlest will be a "future doctor." Dr. Q.T. Patootie, to be exact. I betcha she could cure any ailment in about five seconds flat - with that super sweet smile. It's the best Rx out there.
Our oldest will be none other than Little Miss Muffet (who sat on a tuffet). The costume even comes with a bowl of "curds and whey" (ewww), a fabric spoon, and a spider bag for collecting candy.
And, as you can see, I'm a 50's girl...all ready for the nearest sock-hop. I kind of like wearing a poodle skirt and a ribbon in my hair actually. Now all I need is a convertible to drive around in.
YOUR TURN: What will your kids be this year? Do you dress-up too - or do you leave all of the fun to your littles?
