Every year, we go through the same thing. Drew comes up with several ideas that he wants to dress up as for Halloween and changes his mind over and over again. He has wanted to win the town costume contest ever since I can remember but unfortunately, we aren’t very clever and some of the costumes other people come up with are far more creative than anything I can ever come up with. It doesn’t help that I am not very artistic so I don’t do well making costumes either.
He does have an idea for this year…I am forbidden to tell “in case someone steals it” from him. Well, it is Tuesday night -three days before Halloween and we don’t even have
all any of the materials we need for his idea yet. Dave’s assignment tomorrow is to head over to Costco to see if he can find the main part of the costume. He’s already been to Home Depot and Lowe’s without any success.
Drew does have a backup plan, two actually, but even those require some talent to put together and materials we don’t have laying around the house. He’s clever. His ideas are good ones, if only his parents had some artistic ability to put help bring them to fruition!
At least we know he’s got a hockey helmet, stick and uniform he can throw together last minute. It might not win a prize, but at least he will be in a costume, (and warm enough) to go trick or treating with his friends.
