Halloween Costumes!

So this year I suppose we went with the animal theme:) I had a bee costume saved for Preston from when Tanner and Logan were one...and I lucked out and found a lady bug costume at our mom-to-mom sale so I thought that would be a good match to the bee for Mallory to wear:) That was easy. Onto the boys...I had a heck of a time finding good costumes for the boys. First of that they are size 5/6 I've noticed that many of the costumes are violent, scary, or dark, or have weapons or fighting associated with them. I refuse to have my four year olds wear that kind of thing. I was looking for something "friendly". Secondly, I refuse to spend over $20 for a costume... and third...all of a sudden the boys have an opinion about what they want to be:) (how dare they!) every costume we looked at it was a battle telling them they couldn't be certain things because it was too violent or scary. Anyways...after four different stores...we finally found the lion and the horse...wasn't in love with them, but they were "friendly", warm, the boys liked them, and they were less than $20...score! I didn't love them, but they would work:) Next year I will try to plan ahead better...maybe I'll get really cretive and make their costumes...Mallory could be Dorothy from Wizard of Oz and the boys could be the scarecrow, Lion, and Tin Man??...hmmm?...Or maybe I'll just check out all the costumes next week when they are discounted at 75% off:)...yeah, that sounds like a better idea:) hehe
