Every year we dress one of our children for our friend Chris. Chris has no kids of his own, doesn't want any kids, but loves our boys. Or at least he does a pretty good job of pretending to really like them! Goose has been Dwight from The Office and a Mexican Wrestler. This year the Hulk got to be Don Draper from Mad Men, the best show on television. We focused so much on Baby Hulk's costume that Goose's costume came from the pretend drawer. Don't feel too sorry for him though, he was more than happy to be a doctor. The baby was an army man, sort of. He was supposed to be a monkey, just like all his brothers have been at his age, but I lost the costume. Yes, ME, Nicole, the most organized person around, lost a monkey costume. Oh, and I realized it the day before Halloween. Squirt decided that Kobra should be an army man so he painted his face and gave him a headband, which Kobra promptly threw off his head. Squirt even dressed up to hand out candy.
Is there a doctor in the house?
He looks like he was in battle, right?
We ended up having a blast. My mom came to check out the kids' costumes and Hulk got extra candy from some houses for his clever portrayal of Don Draper. I even got wine from one of the houses! Like everything in our life, the night felt rushed, but the kids really enjoyed their time and are already looking forward to next year.
One of Draper's many women! Jessica was going to Homecoming. Doesn't she look beautiful?!
