Our original plan for Nicholas' costume, of course, was for him to be a
Marine, like his brother. Complete with cammies, noisey guns, some very cool stuff we found from Phil's boxes AND a hand-made Hummer. That we had started to paint, made from boxes.
Unfortunately, when I received the letter home from school that the first graders would be participating in a scarecrow-making day, rather, half day of fun and party games; our Hummer became obsolete.
I'm not totally big on the whole Halloween thing anyways; so when our church sent out a newsletter that we were featuring a Harvest Fest on Halloween night, and games, and candy, etc.... and to dress as your favorite Bible character, I knew then, the Marine thing was going to be pretty short-lived.
So, I only had to ask him, and barely did I get the words out of my mouth, when I did; that he responded who his favorite was; Moses. We had the walking stick for his staff and I just happened to have found some drop cloth to be used for his clothing. Presto, now we have costume! But before I go there, let me just show you the scarecrow day. Because it was adorable.
Yes, dead alien, too. Pretty cool, huh. It was in the paper on Monday, and Nick was quite jazzed about it. Then it was on the news lastnight, so we HAD to take him to see it.
