So I think this year I wanna dress up for Halloween.
Growing up, my parents never let us celebrate satan's Holiday, aside from handing out tracks to pissed off candy seekers, about hell. But rather than keeping my kids in, and explaining to them all of the intricacies of the occult, I let them trick or treat, and just tell them Halloween is all about candy! In your face satan.
This year E's gonna be Michael, the Archangel:
(just about the only thing that coulda made this picture more 'Christian Right'-ish would've been a billowing American flag behind the cross)
And, no, we didn't tell him he had to be a Bible character. I actually wanted him to be 'Max' from 'Where the Wild Things Are' so that I could tease out Eiffel and Eddie's hair and make them monsters. He passed. He said Eiffel was already monster enough.
So, Eif will end up being a princess (might try to talk her into be a dead princess AT LEAST, just so I can break out the spirit gum) And Ed will be a Walmart baby, if the weather allows - This costume involves a diaper, some dirty feet and a bottle full of Mountain Dew...but that still doesn't leave any obvious pair ups for Abe and I.
What do you all think we should be?
