So let me start by stating each year I want to do some kind of matchy/theme kind of costume idea for both kids. And, so far they've been cute and I've been able to talk the kids into my idea. It's like I have this standard that I'm not a great mom if I just go purchase something for them to wear. Dumb, I know! I may be rethinking my philosophy for next year already! So, this year I thought matching clowns would be really fun and adorable. I had to convince Piper to go along with my idea, but Briggs seemed pretty on board...until the costume was put together. And he kept growling and saying he wanted to be Spiderman! Looking back, I probably should have let him. But I'm stubborn so changing my mind can be tough! As soon as I put the clown costume on Briggs, I couldn't stop laughing and he couldn't stop looking miserable! hahahaha! See picture #1. He is upset! But Piper really loved how hers turned out!
Briggs mostly played on the bounce house with a slide! He had loads of fun!
Our elementary school has a pumpkin decorating contest each year. This year there were a quarter of what I saw last year. So each student that decorated a pumpkin received some kind of special award. Piper's pumpkin won the "Super Sparkliest" award! It was sparkly with all the glitter she poured on!
