The boys’ Halloween costumes this year. I don’t really like store bought costumes. They are pricey with crappy quality. You spent $30 for something they can wear once. So I decided to make my own…

I brought red long sleeves from Target ($8 each). I downloaded and printed “Thing 1” and “Thing 2” images on a sticker sheet. After use, I can peel it out and re-use the shirts! For their hair, I couldn’t convince them to spray it blue, wig or even a cap. So I bought blue winter beanies for them to wear on that day! I was dressed as Dr. Seuss’ cat in the hat. The boys were resistant with their homemade costumes in the beginning.  After getting so many compliments, they wanted to do something just as fun next year.

Today I am thankful for a smooth morning…”
