When I was growing up, we always had homemade costumes. Many times Mom sewed them, usually without even needing a pattern. I remember one year my sister and brother were Betty and Barney Rubble and I was Wilma Flintstone. I have to say that we were totally adorable. I've always wanted to follow the tradition of making homemade costumes. But, since I didn't even start thinking about costumes until a few days ago, we had to make due with a few things we had on hand and a quick trip to WalMart.
Jonathan wanted to be "an Aggie." No problem, pull his Aggie jersey out of the closet and add football player black stripes under his eyes with my eyeliner and he was done.
Elizabeth wanted to be a princess. I didn't have anything to try to pull that one off so we ran to WalMart and scrounged through the few costumes that were left and found a Snow White costume in her size. Whew!
We've always said that Gustin looks like Charlie Brown with his round head and lack of hair. So, we grabbed a yellow onesie (we've got plenty of yellow ones since we never find out the sex of our babies before they are born) and a marks-a-lot marker and, ta-dah...
We have Charlie Brown!
I hope everyone had a great Halloween!
