If I had plans to be sitting around my computer all day, I might start a “discussion” on whether or not Christians should celebrate Halloween and how. Maybe another time…
We do the trick-or-treat thing, but seeing as I am a.) a cheapo and b.) not crafty, my girls’ costume options are generally limited to a.) whatever they can find in the dress-up box in the basement or b.) a soccer player.
As it turns out, when it comes to Halloween, I get my Mother of the Year tendencies from my own dear mom.
Meet Pluto and Wonder Woman (a.k.a. my brother Josh and me). Aren’t our costumes incredible?
EDIT: So, more than one geek has kindly corrected me. I AM BAT GIRL (hear me roar!), not WONDER WOMAN. Where was my head?? My sincerest apologies to all you comic enthusiasts (freaks)!
And here we are a couple years later when, apparently, I took over the costume design myself. This is my friend Ronda, me, Josh, (and Bethany as the trick-or-treat loot). If my memory serves me, that’s red lipstick all over our faces (but I have no idea where we found it, as my mom is not the red-lipstick-wearing type).
The sad thing? I have more where these came from.
What was your best/worst Halloween costume?
