Winnah, winnah, chicken dinnah!

I’m here to announce the winner of the $50 American Express gift card, which was chosen by random number generator.

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 2.01.00 PMAnd the winner is… Lisa Brown! Congrats, Lisa. I’ll be contacting you with more info.

I’ve been planning Halloween costumes for a few weeks now, and we’ve finally nailed down what the kids want to be. Let’s play a fun game, yeah? I’ll show you a little of what I bought today for their costumes, and you try to guess what they want to be. Keep in mind they are 10- and 7-year-old boys.

For the 7 year old:

halloweenplansThat contact cement required that I show an ID to the cashier. What the?

For the 10 year old:

halloweenplans2These are not all the supplies, mind you. Just a few that I bought today.

Any guesses? C’mon, it’s fun!

    I’m glad to know that ‘m not the only one to make my kid’s costume. Those spirit stores are for suckers! :) Is the 7 year old going as heavy machinery?

      Ha! No, it’s not heavy machinery, but now I kinda wish he was going as heavy machinery. :-)

    OMG you make the BEST costumes! Hmmm…7 year old I would say Fix It Felix. 10 year old…I’m thinking Batman. Regardless I can’t wait to see them!

      Good guesses, Scott! OMG, now I want to make a Fix It Felix costume! I’ll give everyone a hint: the hard hat will not actually be seen in the costume. It’s party of the internal structure. :-)

    Don’t even say a minion because that is what Holden is going to be! So my guesses are a minion and Gru.

      Ha! No, it’s not Despicable Me! In fact, the two costumes aren’t related. Minion is going to be soooo cute!

    I’m going to go with something from Minecraft…

      I really wanted them to go as Minecraft guys! They weren’t buying it, though, even though they love Minecraft. I’m going to put up a progress post soon, so everyone can see what they are going to be!
