Does anyone else find Halloween to be more stressful than Christmas? I do. Holy Snickers there’s so much to do. I brought it on myself again this year with the make-yer-own costume policy but both boys were happy and that’s what matters, right? Hiram was Jay the Lightning Lego Ninja and Eldyn was…guess. A kitty (meow). I loved that Lew insisted on being orange and white, even if it’s hard to find any kind of starter inspiration for that color combo. And, tip for next year, don’t Google “kitty pajamas.”
I think the thing that gets me every time is that if you carve your pumpkins too soon, they rot or get eaten so you wait until the last second and then people start ringing the doorbell while you’re up to your elbows in pumpkin guts. Oh and the kitty ears need to get glued on the same night as a big project is due at work. And the ninja mask gets left at kindergarten so you have to make another one and of course it doesn’t turn out as good. And. And. And. Without further ado, photos.
