Okay, the more I run errands right now, the more stressed I feel. Halloween is everywhere! There are pumpkins and costumes every place I turn. This is totally stressing me out because I don't know what my family is going to be for Halloween this year. It's late September and I have no clue what magic I will create to please my kids this year.
Usually, by now we at least have a couple of choices we're mulling over. This year, we've got zip. Nada. Nil. I really never thought I'd be in this situation. When Maia was a baby and we dressed up as Fred, Wilma and Pebbles I never thought I'd still be doing a family theme nine years later. I thought by now my kids would want to do their own things. Boy, did I think wrong.
Over the years we've done the Flintstones; the Crocodile Hunter, Terri, their dog & a croc; Veggie Tales; Peter Pan, etc; Alice in Wonderland, etc; the Incredibles; and High School Musical. What's left that has meaning to our little family and that will please all six of us? I'm sure we'll think of something. Never fear--we won't be going to the ward party naked.
