Okay, I warned you- the holidays are my thing.
Want proof? This post is going out on August 1st (though, to be fair, I should wait until Starbucks starts selling Pumpkin spice lattes in a month) but the day that I am writing this is July 17th.
We have our costume’s picked out for Halloween. And it’s 106 days away.
Do you want to know what our costumes are going to be? SIKE! I can’t tell you that.
What I can do for you though is show you some of our costumes through the years:
2005: Veah was a turtle (purchased)
2006: Veah was a bat (purchased)
2007: Bre was a cat (purchased), I cannot remember what Veah was. Sadly, I just remember that it was purchased and I didn’t like it. The picture is lost in space
2008: Bre was a fairy (dollar store purchase for wings), Veah was a puppy dog (I worked at a dance studio so this was a FREEBIE that we borrowed)
2009: Bre changed costumes several times because we went to several events and she had a closet full of dress up clothes, so purchased but not for Halloween specific. Veah was a fairy and her costume, like Bre’s, came from our dress up bag.
2010: Veah was Rosetta from Tinkerbell (made), Bre was Jesse from Toy Story (clothes she already had and a wooden horse that was already a toy).
2011: Veah was one of the aliens from Toy Story (you know… “The CLAW”) (Bought for super cheap at a thrift store, won funniest costume at a costume contest), Bre was a witch (purchased at the same thrift store)
2012: Veah was Perriwinkle (purchased at Kmart while on a trip), Bre was Tinkerbell (purchased at same thrift store as last year’s costumes for fifty cents).
2013: Veah was Rainbow Dash Equestria girl (made/purchased [shoes $2, leggings 50cents]), Bre was Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz.
2014: Veah was Elsa (bought), Bre was Doc McStuffins (made). The Doc one was fun…
2015: Bre was a rockstar, Veah was a wolf. We were bad this year, having a plan to do something else but waited until the night before to try to get costumes. The girls were pros though and found stuff in their closets.
2016: Veah was Linkette, Bre was Princess Peach. Both costumes were made.
2017: Bre was a cat (for the second time. Pants were purchased but are still in use, everything else came out of her closet), Veah was a Jedi (daddy made the vest, the clock was bought for 50 cents at Goodwill. Sword was already at the house).
That’s it, folks.
