Halloween 2009, better known as "I can't decide what I want to wear for Halloween 2009"

Decisions, decisions.

What to dress up as on Halloween is one of life's greatest decisions when you are a kid.

For the past week, the kids have decided between:

*a farmer
*a princess
*a cowboy
*a racecar driver
*a fireman
*a tractor
*a cheerleader
*a dinosaur
*a pumpkin
*a horse
*a unicorn


About 30 minutes before trick-or-treating, they had finally decided upon a dinosaur and a racecar driver.

5 minutes before trick-or-treating? Little Miss was changing costumes. Again.

The final decision? A princess and a racecar driver.

Nevermind the fact that the Little Miss wears this dress nearly every day.

What's important is that they had fun, got loads of candy, and were home and in bed by 8:00 p.m.

Now that's what I call a Happy Halloween.

Pin It!

Thank you.

Try to redo the whole decision making process and get pics of each outfit! That would be fun, for us to see. I do love the race car driver and the princess. Bet they got lots of goodies.

Becky said...

How in the world you got them in bed by 8, I will never know!

My kids were on their 80th piece of candy and swinging from the rafters!

Well...Halloween doesn't come on a Saturday all that often, you know:)

They looked great!!! As a dinosaur AND a princess:)

Noah would've LOVED that race car driver costume!!!
Better than the plan I last heard. ;)

Brenda Eason said...

She was a doll in both,but that dinasour did look hard to carry lol. What a special time for little ones to make great memories.
Love both of your "treats"

Rhonda said...

Wow! Glad you had all the costumes ready to go! My kids had to make do this year. They actually didn't even complain.

Cute! Cute! Cute!

Emily said...

That is a happy halloween...especially if you dove into the candy afterward! :)

pam said...

8 PM, I am so impressed, we didn't get home until 11PM!

Cute costumes!
Happy Halloween (a day late)

pam said...

Oh, I forgot to tell you...when we got to my uncles house his JD was sitting out by the driveshed. You know Matthew's love for JD, he asked my uncle if it was his favourite too? He answered not really he goes for orange.

Matthew was appalled!!

Rhea said...

Adorable! Too funny they kept changing. I'm impressed you had so many costumes on hand.

*Noelle* said...

Christy (Columbia Lily) said...

is there really any other option for that little girl? =)

Blarney said...

They were cute in those! Time to start planning for next year!

Carrie77 said...

bahaha to the dinosaur costume, and love the race car pic!

Beth in NC said...

Those pics are cute! My daughter was a Peacock and thankfully didn't change her mind (ha).

Joy said...

They sure looked cute even with last-minute decision-making!

Stopping by from the SITS Halloween Parade! :o)

Susan said...

Glad to know that my kids weren't the only ones who couldn't decide on costumes this year - well, my girls couldn't decide - the boy wanted to be a cowboy and a cowboy he was!

Just say Julie said...

I thought I got lucky this year when the young un wanted the same ninja suit he had last year. I neglected to notice that he had grown 2.5 inches since last wearing it and we had to make an emergency run to goodwill for black pants.

Little Miss is adorable in either costume, and that race-car driver is hip!

ShaRhonda said...

Very Cute...that dinousaur didn't look very comfortable to walk around in!

Jennifer Juniper said...

Oh, my gosh! That is so funny that they changed their minds at the last minute! She is really cute as a princess, and I totally understand looking at a closet full of clothes feeling like I have nothing to wear...oh, a girl is born.

Let's just call my caramel apple post a PSA for teachers, shall we?

Cathy said...

The racecar driver costume is too cute! My daughter wanted to be a princess, but she settled for a cheerleader!

Queenie Jeannie said...
