Angel Baby and Monster Man had a dance at their school yesterday. It wasn't just any dance, though. It was a pre-Halloween costume dance. I usually buy their costumes on clearance after Halloween for the next year's Halloween. I hadn't done this with Angel Baby, since she's been growing so fast lately, but I had with Monster Man. Unfortunately, he decided he didn't want to dress up like Darth Vader after all. So I told them they could either make due with the costumes they already had (Angel Baby had a couple of costumes that fit), or they could create something new.
Angel Baby decided that she wanted to be a chef, wearing an apron that my mom made along with a chef's hat and a blond curly wig.
Monster Man decided that he wanted to be a nerd. He didn't have glasses (and you can't see his pocket protector in the photo since the photos turned out dark), but he did a pretty good job with the costume.
While they were at their dance, I took Little Man to a fall festival at a local grocery store. He was thrilled that I'd bought him a Batman muscle-suit costume after Halloween last year (and for only $3!).
