Let me start with last Halloween. Catie and I decided that she and Buck would be Bat Girl and Batman! It was going to be great (or gweat in Catie words). Then a costume magazine showed up and Buck saw the Transformer on the front. That was the end of Batman, and what I thought would be the end of couple costumes for my children.
This year I took the babes to a Halloween outlet store so they could pick out their costume and it would be done with. I let Catie go first and she gravitated to the pink Super Girl costume. No problem. Buck was next and after looking through some zombies, Harry Potters, and Ninjas he spied a Superman costume. "I want to be Superman, Mommy!" Alas, my kids are keeping the couple Halloween costume dream alive for me! How comforting!?
Now, if I can only get my darned Halloween yard ornament horse to stand up!!!!
