The Kids Costumes Are In

Yesterday, UPS delivered my kids costumes and they fit perfectly!  Now, that the anticipation of waiting for the costumes - wondering how they would look, if they would fit, if they wouldn’t fit, did they make the right choice about which costume they wanted, etc… - is officially over.  The “wondering” is over and now the excitement begins!  Twelve more days until they can put those costumes on, apply makeup to their faces and become their new character for the night.

It was a lot of work getting my two oldest to decide between all the great costumes on our website.  I didn’t think they’d ever figure out what they wanted to be!  My backup plan of cutting two eyes out of a white sheet and throwing it over their heads was looking pretty good towards the end.  Ok here’s what costumes we finally decided on

Caden (my 9 year old son) - Pirates of the Caribbean Jack Sparrow Deluxe Child Costume Jack Sparrow Deluxe Child Halloween Costumel   plus it wouldn’t be complete without the Jack Sparrow’s sword  and scabbard. Pirate Sword   This costume is unbelievable!  The pirate hat with attached black beaded braids add the perfect touch.  Caden loves pirates and has since he was little, so this costume was perfect – plus Jack Sparrow is his Idol.

Sydney (my 6 year old daughter) – Monster Bride Child Costume Monster Bride Halloween Costume  and of course she had to have the stitched glovettes  Stitched Halloween Costume Gloves    I wasn’t too keen on this costume at first only because I wasn’t sure anyone would know what she’s trying to be, but Sydney loved it and kept coming back to it when we were looking at costumes for her.  However, I’m so glad we ordered it because it is probably one of the cutest costumes I’ve ever seen!  Sydney looks adorable in it!  (I ended up buying her white tights and drew on the “stitches” with permanent black marker).

And last but not least,

Olivia (my 4 year old daughter) – Lil’ Mermaid Toddler Costume  Mermaid Toddler Halloween Costume The Seaweed Boa wrap looks so cute with her costume we just had to have it. Boa Wrap for Halloween Costume  The Little Mermaid has always been a favorite around our house.  Sydney and Olivia love Ariel and all her underwater adventures.  The costume looks darling on her.  She wanted to wear it to bed last night so I can see that I’m going to have a hard time keeping her out of it until Halloween night.   

Well that’s it for our costume charades for this year!  Now the kids can’t wait for Halloween night so that they can put their costumes on and have fun trick-or-treating.
