Charlotte had been Ariel. Not a red headed, monkey faced, princess! And Hannah was Cinderella.
Before I had kids I never would have thought that this was cute. Store bought Disney costumes. Bleh. But now as a mom of two little girls who adore princesses and believe they ARE princesses in these costumes. Cutest thing ever:)
Isaiah had been a vampire. For the second year in a row. It is a pretty awesome costume. Unfortunately I don't have a picture from this year. Mom fail. I assumed he would wear it again after school for trick or treating. Wrong. Oops. He was a very handsome vampire. Trust me.
But my real point here is this. We used fluorescent red hair spray in Charlotte's hair to transform her into Ariel. Why? Because it cost $2 and the wig cost $20. Amazing deal, right?!? Well it was a good deal until I learned why people choose a wig over hair spray for 3 year olds....
Suffice it to say, after I was done cleaning up that mess I wasn't so sure the savings was worth it. Another great parenting lesson learned!
Speaking of parenting. Today marks the 1 year anniversary of me being a stay at home mom! It seems worthy of recognizing. That's all.
