Are you wondering what the kids will be this year? I had lots of possible ideas: a rock band, Mario, Luigi, and Peach, a witch, Frankenstein, and a mummy-all of which would have been adorable but with my kids, you never know what they will actually wear when the time comes. They are VERY particular about what they will put on. While I really wanted to have them all wear coordinating costumes, I just wanted them to be happy with their costumes, so we sat in fromt of the laptop and I showed them all different costumes until they pointed out some things they said they liked.
It shouldn’t be hard to guess what Lily chose- a princess. It’s a white sparkly gown and I just need to get her some shoes and a little tiara and she’ll be all set. I do not have to worry about whether she’ll wear this when the day comes. In fact I am sure she’ll be wearing it for a long time to come. For the boys- it’s Lightning Mc Queen’s pit crew. The outfit has Lightning McQueen on the front and I think that’s enough. I can’t wait to see them all dressed up:)
Things have been very busy around here-work is picking up a lot. I got to go to my favorite Halloween activity ever this week: Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios. They transform the park into haunted houses, and have “scare zones” where all these crazy people jump out at you… I’ve done it a million times yet it still scares the hell out of me. SO much fun.
The kids are doing great.. They just got over being sick, though. Ben actually threw up the other day, out of the blue while sitting on my lap. He got over it pretty quickly though.. saying “Mommy, I threw ‘back’.. I ok now”. I don’t know where “threw back” came from but it’s funny!
They are all talking up a storm, and cracking us up every day. They are way too observant for my liking though. Benjamin is like the clean-police; if there is a spot or a stain anywhere on your clothing, he will come up and point it out and ask you to go change. Lily is a little diva, and asks for her Cinderella dress every day.. sometimes throwing a fit if she doesn;t get to wear it. That’s fun to deal with first thing in the morning. And Cameron is still my little mama’s boy.. he’s a loving, sweet little cuddle-bug when he isn’t whining, of course. He’s the only one who doesn’t give me a hard time about what clothes I pick for him.
We are all off today and I am trying to find something fun for us to do- we may go to the zoo, or the farm, but I’ll post pictures later tonight!
