A Barnyard of Costumes – The Ducks

Apparently giving Halloween costumes as baby gifts was “in” last year. I can’t tell you what a blessing that little trend has been for the twins. You see, I’m not exactly a Halloween enthusiast. Don’t get me wrong…my kids have always had a costume to wear, but I have to admit that Ryan was a banana at least five of his trick-or-treating years. I’m sure this is mostly because of that pesky practical side of my personality. I mean…who really remembers and I’d rather spend the money on real bananas than another ninja warrior costume. Take into account that the twins can’t walk yet (which makes trick-or-treating challenging) and only have four teeth between the two of them (putting a wrinkle in the eating of Dots) I may have foregone the costumes this year if other generous souls hadn’t felt compelled to gift them to us…well in advance.

Now I have a dilemma, though!

Which costume combo will be chosen for the glory of Halloween night? I mean, there’s no time for three wardrobe changes during the big event, so we have to choose a theme, and it’s hard.

(This is called a “First World” problem! You know…as opposed to a third world problem. And, yes! For that I am grateful!)

Anyhow, I’ve decided to give each costume a dry run and make a decision last minute based on some practicality. (i.e. Weather; Which one is clean; The costume I can find…) Our first fitting was yesterday and here’s how it went…

 

Oh…before I unveil this little photo shoot, you must know something.  Reagan and Isabella, like all other twins, have their own language and talk to one another nonstop.  I often (because I’m bored and somewhat isolated) imagine what they are saying to one another.  This conversation happened during our photo op yesterday and must be shared because I’m positive I’ve broken their code!

 

 

 

 

Hey Reagan…You look like a duck!

You think I look like a duck? What do you think you look like?

Oh my…We are both ducks?

Please God, Don’t make us ducks forever!

This is exhausting.

Make this be over!

Just smile at the camera and then maybe she’ll turn us back into babies!

 

 These girls thought the other dressed in a duck costume was the funniest thing she’d ever seen.  I can’t wait until they see the cow costumes…and the lambie costumes.  We have a whole barnyard of costumes to cover.  So…stay tuned for the cuteness!

    OMG, they are the cutest ducks ever. With my crafty nature, I’ve made most of the early costumes my boys have worn…a fuzzy teddy bear, a skunk, a pac-man ghost. I think the skunk was the easiest and the bear was my favorite.

    I think you have cracked their code. Looked like Isabella was trying to fly away in the last pic. Maybe if you dress as a milk maid, MK dresses as a cowgirl and Daddy dresses as old MacDonald you can have the whole gang- unless the boys are joining in as cowboys too :D. Looks like a fun Halloween is coming your way.

    omg Carolyn those are the cutest babies(and costumes) ever! I remember the years I chose “warm” costumes would be the day that Halloween was like 80 degrees and the times I chose the light weight costumes it would snow. Here’s hoping for a cold night!!! You are blessed. Your boys and little girls are precious!
