Addendum to the Weekend Report

A word about the costumes:

You've heard of "going green" or helping save the earth by shopping at secondhand clothing stores? Well, that cowgirl costume is about as green as they come. Blondechick wore it first in our family, but it had been passed on to us by a family of three girls...who had received it from a family with two girls...making Chicklet the 7th little girl to wear it!! I wish you could see the very authentic cowboy boots she's wearing with it, which we bought for Bantam13 back when he was about this age.

That yellow suit on Bantam3 was in a bag of clothes that was handed to us at church a few years ago and I have no idea what it's supposed to be for. It says "Baby Sea Tech" on the back; maybe it's a raincoat? Or a deep sea diver's jumpsuit? But he told everyone he was a "far-man."

Bantam9 has a name tag on, labelled "Dork Master." He came up with his whole outfit in about a half an hour. I wish his hair would have stayed parted down the middle better, but we had tremendously high winds that afternoon! Can you see the pens and pocket protector, and the tape on his glasses? What a goof ball.

We had a pair of cowboy boots (4 or 5th hand me downs) that were part of many a cowboy ensemble.

I like B9's ingenuity!

We had a little "far man" here on Halloween night too.

Hope they got lots of treats!
