I bought the boys' Halloween costumes early because I need two in the right size and I'm frugal so I wanted cheap costumes that don't look cheap. I loved the Old Navy quality last year and as much as I don't like Nate and Alex matching, there was NO WAY I could get them to wear different costumes without some kind of complete meltdown. With Halloween on a Friday, I hope to go all out and let the boys gorge themselves on candy and stay up late on a sugar high so the last thing I need is a mega-fight over costumes.
Before you judge, please admit you never dreamed about this kind of Halloween as a kid. Yeah that's what I thought.
I wanted to try the costumes on for size and learned Alex was afraid of his costume. He freaked when I tried to get him to wear it the first time. But with enough patience, understanding, cajoling, and swedish fish, I present my little pirates:
I didn't put their pants on because I want to save the full effect for Halloween. IT IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!
How can you say no more candy to this sweet face?!
