My Creative Kids

I really am not too fond of Halloween. I never got into the costume thing as a kid once my mom stopped making bunny suits and between living overseas and the un-Halloweeny crowd I tend to hang out with, I just never got into it with the kids. So when they said we were going to have a Halloween party at school, my reaction was, yawn, whatever, as long as I don't have to do anything, much.

But I guess the boys like it more than I knew. And thankfully, they are creative enough to come up with ideas at the last minute. When someone said they would just be a ghost, Caleb had the brilliant idea that he could be a Ghostbuster (we have seen the movie a couple times - classic for their age- they love it). So here he is. Notice the badges with the logo....

We've been reading Phantom Tollbooth in school, and Jared is always a whiz in Math, so he decided to be the Mathemagician - you'll have to read it to find out if you don't know the book. The picture doesn't really show how his cape is covered with mathematical formulas and equations. But here he is:
Quick, easy, original, cheap. Once again, they amaze and amuse me.

Yeah! Tomorrow is a holiday and I get to sleep late and relax. Did I mention that this job has kind of taken over my life?

I didn't grow up participating Halloween, for the most part. It wasn't until last Halloween that I really cared for the day; I used to always call it Reformation Day. Anyway, last year, I went to a Halloween party; I went all out with my costume. It was quite a commitment.

Anyway, you guys look like you're having fun. I really like the Ghost Busters costume. I didn't get to go that particular Halloween party this year; I was in Manhattan playing a rugby. My friend dislocated his shoulder in the game, so we had to take him to the ER.
