Last year, I posted a quick look at how to make Mummy hot dogs. I made them for my husband’s co-workers (I wasn’t working full-time. I had a lot of time on my hands.) For my first time making them, they were kind of fun. Ironically enough, we have hot dogs this week and I’m thinking of making the mummies again.
And that got me to thinking back on Halloweens of past and our son’s costumes. This year, he’s getting into the costume thing, but wants to be sure we know that he’s really Lucas and not Elmo.
Our first Halloween as a family of 3, we were the scarecrow, Dorothy and Toto. Lucas was just about 7 or 8 weeks old and slept through the Halloween party we attended (at a neighbor’s house.) (For some reason I canNOT find the photo of us! I know a couple were taken.)
Second Halloween and our boy was a dinosaur! He was the cutest dinosaur. I loved the costumes from Carters and wish they made them for big kids.
His third Halloween, he was Winnie the Pooh. I found the costume on consignment and it fit perfectly. (We have an Eeyore costume now, that my aunt gave us, but it’s still too big for this year.)
I bought his Elmo costume a few weeks ago and it’s already a little short. Hoping we can make it through Friday evening with the costume intact. Or maybe we’ll put him in the too-big Eeyore costume. He hasn’t been trick or treating yet. We’re going to a fall festival on Friday evening and then may take him to a few neighbor’s houses. I’m not sure how he’ll handle trick or treating. (He may love it and totally surprise us!)
Do you have a favorite costume your child has worn – or that you’ve seen on kids? I still think the dinosaur is my favorite…
