A Little Less Conversation

Tonight after dinner, Chase and I passed the time by looking through the Wishcraft Halloween Costume catalog. Upon spying this,

Chase most emphatically stated that he wanted to be Elvis this year. Even with the such tempting options as astronaut, firefighter, and Batman; he clung to his choice like peanut butter to bananas. He's so excited about being The King that when I told him we had to wait for the costume to arrive in the mail, he suggested that I give the mailman a call to help speed the process along. He ain't nothin but a hound dog...

Now Amaya, on the other hand, is not so solidly sold on any one costume. Which isn't so surprising given that she has multiple personalities, and that she's two. Plus, she's my daughter, so girl hasn't got a prayer of being decisive. So, I thought maybe you guys could help her out. I've narrowed the field down to these candidates:

A. Squiggly Piggly
This was what I wanted her to be last year, but I waited too long to order it and they ran out of her size. Drew votes for this costume as she would make the perfect pint-sized ambassador for his new business venture: I can just see her handing out marketing swag to all the little trick-or-treaters, can't you?

B: Buzz, buzz Bumble Bee

This was also a possibility last year. I think it fits her for a couple of reasons: she buzzes around the house like she's the Queen Bee & you want to watch out for her stinger.

C: Wonder Woman

Ok, so I'm envisioning matching Mother/Daughter costumes here. I've always really wanted to be Wonder Woman, but I don't think I'd look nearly as cute in my costume. I'm not sure I'm ready to be upstaged by my daughter just yet--give me 10 years or so.

D. Nurse Petunia

I'm sure after all of that candy intake, we'd appreciate having a medical professional on hand. Though since her drug of choice is chocolate chip cookies, I'm not sure she's our best bet for healing sugar-induced tummy aches.

 And finally we have Chase's choice for his sister and I quote:

E: "The Girl Elvis"

Ummm no. But don't tell Chase I said that. I plan to tell him that the Girl Elvis went on vacation to Graceland, so she won't be able to join us for Halloween this year.

So what do you think?

For RSSers:


  1. I voted for the pig. So cute!!!

  2. The bee makes me think of Blind Melon and the music video for No Rain ... or, you know, just hum the song for days now... haha

    I like the pig or wonder woman -- but I think that she's still young enough for the pig while wonder woman can be next year or the year after...(and I totally think you'd pull off matching -- so cute!)
