No, it's not been a huge secret . . . . . It's just that I delayed finalizing the costumes.
I use to be so good at doing Halloween. I handmade costumes for the boys for years.
Until . . . I burned out.
Now we do Halloween last minute. And frankly, it turned out okay!
Here's Emma as Princess Jasmine.
I'm still eeking out use to cover the $100 we shelled out for costume, makeup and hair when we were at Disneyland.
I am practically Mother of the Year with Ethan's costume.
After denying him the opportunity to be Link (from Legend of Zelda) for the last three years, I finally caved. And it worked out great.
Ethan thinks I walk on water now . . . . . .ah! Success!
Costumes for 13 year olds gets a little difficult. But we took home the gold with Josh's rendition of Michael Phelps. He wouldn't go shirtless and low rider with his jammer. Still, it worked pretty nicely.
Enjoy it while it lasts, because they are selling Christmas in the stores as we speak.
