This year Halloween sort of took a back seat to our trip. Being out of town for two weeks left little time for costume planning. Early on Joy had the genius idea of me, her and Katrina dressing as the witches from Hocus Pocus. We were all stoked for our costumes. Until it came down to the week of Halloween where there was lots of scrambling. Katrina and I put our costumes together the day of our friends annual Halloween party. And you know what? We nailed it.
Now for Max’s costume. We had no idea what he was going to be. We really wanted to take advantage of this probably being the last year we could control what he dressed as so we wanted it to be good. I had too much on my plate so Rob became the head of the Max costume department. He chose Hulk Hogan but we couldn’t find a yellow tank top, and for some reason neither of us were really feeling it. So we asked Max what he wanted to be. Of course we had to explain what you do on Halloween and dressing up and trick or treating. Then we gave him examples of costumes; witch, wizard, bat, robot. As soon as we said robot he was all about it. So the day before Halloween Rob carved out a couple of boxes and when I got off of work on Halloween I worked my magic with foil and construction paper and glow sticks that we’ve had in our Halloween boxes for 4 years. And Max Bot 2.5 came alive.
I’d say we had a pretty good Halloween Max loved his costume and still having fun with it, wearing it and stomping on it because after all he is a destructive two year old.
