Just wondering - what are the kids going as this year?

I was thinking of dressing up as a Chatelaine cover - but I might scare the children.

:frightened

My son helped make his costume this year. He's Cloud -- a character from Final Fantasy.

If he's healthy enough to go out tomorrow night, the friend he's supposed to go with is dressed as a different character from another game that Cloud is also in (but I can't remember the name of it :oops: ).

The *fun* part of making this costume was the hair. Cloud is an anime character, so all that pointy hair sticking up. I can wash and brush hair, but that about it. So, I bought a cheap wig and set the style with white glue. :rofl

~~

He's also entering a pumpkin decorating contest tomorrow (again, assuming he's OK tomorrow). DH suggested trying for the scariest pumpkin -- surround it with peanuts, and dairy products, and stick an expired epi-pen out of it. We also discussed an H1N1 pumpkin.

But, DS has his plans.....

Last year he won one of the prizes. (They award for funniest, scariest, and best in each of three age groups. DS's was the last prize awarded -- and the guy said it was the BEST he had ever seen. I'll look for the pic to post.

The baby also has a bow tied around her "hair" which is the stem in the top.

Look closely at the diaper -- it's open on one side.

Well, he didn't win this year -- but he left with a smile anyway, because he's happy with how his pumpkin turned out. I'll post a pic when dh puts them on the computer for me (he used his blackberry).

I'm glad he's feeling well now. He just has a cough. No fever, no chills, just a cough. I'm still not sure -- it could be his allergies kicking up a fuss -- all those wet leaves everywhere means there's a lot of mould in the air.
