OK, Son's costume: We already had the socks and shoes and black acrylic paint that I used to make the zigzag on his shirt. I just needed a yellow shirt and black shorts. Thank you, Garanimals. I found both for $3.50 each. Actually, his shorts were sweatpants that I cut off because I couldn't find solid shorts this time of year.
The zigzag was a lot easier than I thought. I used a ruler and a washable marker to make the zigzags and then painted them in. After the paint dried, I washed the shirt. presto. total cost for Son's Charlie Brown costume: under $8.
This was the closest I could get the kids to stand for a picture.
We went to a Trunk-or-Treat at church.
Charlie Brown wasn't so sure about all the attention.
But notice the peppermint in his hand. He loves them and wanted to open it as soon as it was given to him.
Daughter in a bouncy house.After the bouncy house, I was putting her shoes back on and realized she was NOT wearing panties. WHAT!?! yes. commando. WHAT. I thought I remembered her wearing panties when I got her dressed!! I was mortified that someone might have seen her. I told Husband that we had her "just in case" change of clothes in the car and there was definitely extra panties in there (this isn't the first time I've been glad I always keep extra clothes in the car!) So he marches her back to the car and when the get there, he finds her panties beside her carseat. She admits she took her panties off in the car because she wanted to. seriously.
his turn in a bouncy house (back in my day they were called Moon Walks)
Daughter going down the slide. I agreed with Husband when he said, "Aren't you glad we realized she wasn't wearing panties BEFORE this slide?"
