This is probably the last year that I can dictate what Rachel and Claire are going to be for Halloween. They’re starting to form those pesky opinions of their own. But I went ahead and chose something for all three of them.
As the holiday neared, we talked about dressing up. They were excited about their glittery butterfly wings and tutus, flying all over the house and the backyard. Claire loved the headgear. Rachel, not so much.
I tried to incite conversation, asking them what they were going to be for Halloween. The answers?
“I wanna be a pumpkin!”
Because they are obSESSED with pumpkins this year.
To which I answered, “Well too bad, you’re being butterflies.”
But this year? Halloween was a family affair. Mainly because we had a Halloween party to go to and I would feel lame next to my friend’s family Pac Man board costume.
I introduce you to the Torres Family Butterfly Farm!
Never mind the fact that I can never get my 3 kids looking at the camera at the same time.
And yes we ARE going to rock this entire ensemble to go trick or treating tonight.
What are your little goblins dressing up as for Halloween?
