Connor has wanted to go as his hero, Buzz Lightyear for a couple years now. I always try to avoid the store costumes but when we let him try it on a few weeks ago, he made the cheapy costume look way too adorable to pass up. His wings were killing me though. He'd had them on for 5 minutes at the house and managed to knock over a frame and a cup of milk. Once we got to the school, he grazed the many cups of popcorn and then several bowls of chex mix. Disaster, but cute. There was a costume contest and Connor won Most Original - it makes no sense that a Buzz costume from Party city would win this category, but perhaps I'm overthinking it. A win's a win.
We didn't know what to do for Noah. I thought it would be hilarious to have him dress as one of the Pizza Planet aliens but we just ran out of time to be creative with it. I randomly saw a Charlie Brown picture somewhere and was inspired. Simple and perfect. He looked adorable. I struggled trying to get yellow socks for him for weeks. I shopped and found nothing. I decided to try and dye them and the color looked amazing until I washed them and it came completely out. I gave up and decided the tell-tale Charlie Brown shirt would carry the costume.
Jeff & I dressed up too, though as usual I'm not in any of the pictures. Jeff went as Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang and I don't think anyone knew he was actually dressed up. I went as a deviled egg. random? Yes. did anyone know what I was? No.
even charlie brown throws temper tantrums when he doesn't want his picture taken
Sheldon Cooper & Charlie Brown
"to infinity & beyond!"
we were thrilled to see a painting of Charlie Brown so we had to get a picture!
Each of the classrooms had a different project and ways to get candy! In the baby room, the boys got to decorate little pumpkins with foam stickers. I was thrilled that they had owl stickers :)
