Halloween Update

Yesterday, when I went to Starling and Merlin’s school for the Halloween parade, Mr. Williams, Merlin’s gifted class teacher, asked me to come to his room.  I totally misjudged him, he actually seems like a really nice person.

He wanted to talk to me about Merlin’s Professor Snake costume.  Apparently I didn’t lose it, Merlin had put it in his book bag and was planning to wear it for the Halloween parade.  Mr. Williams wanted to make sure that was ok with me. LOL!  As if I actually care about that sort of thing! I let Mr. Williams know that I am NOT a controlling mom AT ALL!  It makes me laugh to imagine anyone would think that of me.

 

As a matter of fact, Starling had decided at the last minute to change her costume too!

Super Starling had changed her mind again!

Mr. Williams was wearing the Head Wizard costume and it was nice to see that Merlin seems to like him.

Very magical. right?

I wonder if he has a girlfriend.  He seems like he probably does but I can’t figure out if he does.  I hope he does because he is a very nice man.

Spooky Halloween

It has been really difficult to get Halloween costumes figured out this year.  First of all, Starling couldn’t decide so I ended up buying her a bunch of costumes and just letting her pick at the last minute.  She decided to be a cowgirl!  Adorbs!

This costume cost a fortune, but so worth it.

Merlin actually came home from school with a costume.  His class has been reading a book called Henry Potter and had voted to all dress in costumes from the story as a class.  Mr. Williams is very understanding about my busy schedule and gave Merlin a costume to be Professor Snake.  I asked if Snake was the hero and Merlin said no!  I was outraged.  I tossed the costume in a drawer or something and couldn’t find it this morning.  Luckily I had an old homemade horse costume that Karen had given me awhile ago that went perfectly with Starling’s costume.  Problem solved.  Merlin was upset but, oh well.  The tail kind of looks like a donkey tail, but let’s call it a horse so he doesn’t start crying like a baby again.

So much better than being a minor character in a book no one has ever heard of.

My costume was the hardest to find!  I really wanted to be something historical so I looked for a sexy suffragette costume everywhere.  They just don’t seem to make them.  I ended up with a slutty Puritan costume which is cute, but not quite what I had in mind.  I am looking forward to wearing it at the children’s costume parade at school.  I wonder if Mr. Williams will notice that I am a history fan too?

Hello Jonathan Edwards!  Meow! I look like a Real Housewife of Plymouth, right?
