So we get home and cook and cook and cook. (Cake pops are not something I will be attempting again.) And then we got into costumes. My 13 year old decides at the last minute to dress up so all he had was camo. Worked for me! And then came the question I had been avoiding all day. "What are you and Daddy dressing up as?" Apparently my 3 year old would not accept nothing. So I quickly changed into my Allume shirt and throw on my name tag. I was a conference attendee. My hubby was a solider with the full vest and all. And he was okay with dressing up UNTIL we got to the party and NO other adult was dressed up. There are normally at least 3 other adults dressed up- NOBODY this year! He was not happy. But the hostess quickly ran inside and put on a costume just for him.
This was the first year that costumes were actually an issue in our house. Believe me I will do it differently next year. Especially since I will not be at home. I will again be at Allume the weekend we tentatively have down. So I will have costumes before hand and I will not let the kids talk their daddy into dressing up.
Did you do the whole costume thing this year? What did your kids dress up as?
