The Halloween Costume Tango

- Conversation at the dinner table -

Estee: Breuklyn, don't you want to be something a little warmer than a princess? All of the costumes are so flimsy, you'll be cold.

Breuklyn: No way. I want to be a princess.

Brad: You should be something scary. Like a ghost!

Breuklyn: Dad. That's not funny. I want to be Ariel. Mermaids are the best.

Estee: Haley is going to be a cat, you should be a cat! Or what about a witch? I found the cutest witch costume. It has a hat, that's cool... right?

Brad: You should be a vampire. Vampires are awesome.

Breuklyn: Vampires are not cool. They live at baseball games, that isn't cool.

Estee: Ok, wait a minute... what?

Breuklyn: I don't even like baseball.

- Blank stares between me and Brad, then... -

Estee: An umpire?

Breuklyn: That's what I said. Umpires don't wear tiaras. And I don't like baseball.

Brad: You really can't argue with that.

OMG how cute!!! Thanks for the smile so bright and early this morning. Oh BTW I made that amazing meatloaf the other night and it was awesome. It will definitely be on our list of favorites. Thanks!

That is priceless Estee. Vampires live at baseball games. LOL Poor Maddux, you'll have to get him some boy costumes. I was thinking about getting Brandon some after Halloween when clearances start. I would buy them at Disney like I buy the girls', but everything is so expensive, and he'll just rip them being a boy. LOL I bet Brad was thrilled when he demanded boy costumes. Ronnie is convinced that we are damaging Brandon because his favorite accessory is a Hannah Montana purse that belongs to his sister.

Ha, ha...funny! And it's usually the opposite here. It's always still so hot by Halloween and the kids want to wear costumes with long sleeves or furry, hot ones! LOL Then they are just sweating up a storm!! LOL

hee hee on the umpire. My kids are going to be Dorothy from Wizard of Oz and a Star Wars storm trooper. I'm gonna try and see if I can get everyone to dress up as the other Wizard of Oz characters. That'd be way cute;)
