It's Almost Halloween!!!

Okay, so I am only posting this b/c I don't want to leave a sad blog entry up as the most recent. So, I decided before I head off to bed and face a mere two hours of uncomfortable sleep before I need to get Albert up for work, I would post something fun. Halloween sounds like a good one. The boys are getting excited.
The boys love to dress up. Each year, Drew and Emanuel say that they are too old and are not going to dress up again, and each year they still do. However, they have scaled back. Instead of buying the store bought typical Halloween costumes, they like to buy cool accessories to add to their regular clothes...sort of like half dressing up...more "cool" I guess.
Anyhow, Drew is dressing up as a Hippie. He is wearing some ripped up jeans and a tee shirt that he tyed dyed over the summer at Camp Rainbow. He bought a long black wig and is going to make a poster with some sort of Hippie slogan on it.
Emanuel is going to wear normal clothes and then add a hat we picked up for him that is a basic black beanie with an ax through the top and blood spilling down. We also grabbed a tube of fake blood for him to paint his face with. So cool.
Brandon is wearing a long, black velvet cape we've had for years and pairing it with a scary mask we got at Walmart. It really is a great mask . It has long hair comming down the back and is super scary. Plus he may carry a cane to lean on to look even scarier...he says he isn't sure if he wants to mess with the cane whilst trying to manage his bag o'candy.
Jackson is the scary dude from Scream. I swear every third year, one of our kids wants to be the scream guy. We picked up his costume at a resale shop called "Once Upon A Child" I have come to love that store, espicially for things like Halloween costumes. Can you imagine if we paid full retail on costumes for 8 kids???? That would be insane. So now, I try to hunt the resale shops for the little ones. We picked up Jackson's costume in primo condition for $6
Brice is a puppy dog. We have had this costume for many years and its fabulous. It is warm and fleecy, and has held up great, even though its been worn by three kids (or more). I guess when each kid only wears it for a day, it tends to stay nice! Next year it will be passed down to Isaiah. One less to buy.
Isaiah is a bumble bee. Another resale shop find. His cost $4.00. It's adorable and also really warm. Can't wait to see him in it!
Alexandria is a witch. Yet a third resale shop find. I paid a whopping $6 for her costume. The hat is the cutest part! She loves hats now so I have a reasonable chance of having her actually keep it on!
Sydney is a flower. We borrowed that costume from my friend Ora, whose little girl Sara wore it last year. It was so absolutely adorable of Sara last year, that I asked (way back last year)if we could borrow it this year for Sydney. It's been hanging up in her closet all year long waiting!!! If the new baby is a girl, we might ask to borrow it again next year. It really is adorable.
Anyhow, tonight admidst my bad mood and yelling at the kids for several various infractions, Brice asked me where was MY Halloween costume? I told him that I was dressing up as a mean Mommy. He then looked at me....and suggested....that I go as....the HULK!!! Thanks Brice. Such a self esteem booster! Albert told me that he had probably gotten this idea from my wild, outbursting behavior while rampaging at the kids! He might be right....lets not forget that last year about a month after Sydney was born, Brandon announced "Mom...I'm so glad you aren't pregnant anymore....you are SO much nicer when you aren't pregnant!"

Angela- I can imagine that halloween in your household is quite the production! You define "grace" to me. The pics of your kids with the pumpkins are too cute- I can not believe how big they've all gotten! Hope you and Al are doing well. The Colias send our love from Boston -ALI
