Well.. my camera is still lacking a memory card.. (although I have the old one, which I barely remember how to use- for tomorrow) so I have a real lack of pictures around here lately. But, as an extra scary Halloween treat, I thought I would share a photo of one of the scariest people I have ever, ever seen:
So, I came up with (and by came up with, I mean, heard of someone else doing this and thought it was a good idea) the idea to have the kids be Skipper, Gilligan, and MaryAnne for Halloween. I was very conflicted about what to have them wear, as it’s really pretty hard to get them to wear anything on their heads, and I didn’t know if it would be hot (although, it’s a safe bet), and I really didn’t want to spend a lot of money on costumes either. I actually was able to find most of the clothing for Skipper, Gilligan, and MaryAnne in their current wardrobes (wait.. what does that say?) I feel bad because we have an adorable bee costume for Lily that was passed on to us.. but I have a feeling it will still fit her next year since it’s a little big now. So, the Gilligan’s Island crew it is. We did a test run of them in their costumes tonight before bed and they are downright adorable. Wait till you see Cameron in that Skipper hat! The only downside, is that none of the kids (mine, or other kids) will have any clue who they are. That show has been off the air for so long now! They will look back when they are grown, and ask me what the heck I was thinking, dressing them as TV characters that were popular 40 years before they were born!
I didn’t have to buy anything for my costume either.. I am going as a tired mom:) I think I can pull that one off really well.
The au pair search is going well, mostly. I have a few really qualified candidates to interview, but it’s hard to find time to talk when we are in different time zones! It looks like we may have an au pair in time for the holidays, which would be great. We’ll see..
