Since Guppy 2 is 13 and in 8th grade, this will most likely be the last year that she officially goes out for "trick or treating" on Halloween. Knowing her, this won't be the last we see of Halloween costumes as I'm sure there will be Halloween parties in the future. But the traditional door-to-door-asking-for-candy thing is done this year. Maybe that's why I am a wee-bit (cough cough) freaked out she hasn't decided on a costume yet. That and possibly because, hey, we are out to Fright Fest tonight AND she has a birthday party during the day on Halloween! The only saving grace is she wants to do a "homemade" costume since that's what her friends are doing!
So far, the group is going as....
An Alien &
Two bank robbers (think cartoon style NOT thug)
And then there's G2....who can't decide! Here are the ideas we have come up with...
A pageant girl
Carrie - yes THAT Carrie from the Stephen King book/movie
Lilo & Stitch (she would carry a Stitch stuffed animal)
I told G2 she needs to decide right when she gets off the bus after school since we only have an hour or two before we are picked up to head to the amusement park for the evening. If I have to pick up any items needed for the (finally) chosen costume, I will do it on Saturday while she is at the birthday party.
It was so much easier (and more fun!) when they were little and I could pick out their costumes myself. It could be worse though. She could want one of the more questionable costumes at the Halloween stores that leave a LOT of skin exposed and not much to the imagination....if you catch my drift!
