I Feel the Need...

Well, I got one more year out of coordinating costumes and I MIGHT have scored an additional year in 2018 just because they realized what fun it was to have a theme! HA! This year, we started going through all of the "what can brothers be for Halloween?" ideas and landed on Top Gun characters, Goose and Maverick. James and Will haven't ever seen the movie Top Gun, but we explained a little about it and let them watch a few clips from the movie just for fun.

These were the easiest costumes we've ever had before. Literally hopped on Amazon and clicked and ordered. They were a cinch. I did buy Will's first one too small so I have an extra, but other than that I didn't have to lift a finger.

The boys realized this year what FUN Halloween costumes can be and that you can have a super clever costume that people think is really cool. Some friends of ours (who are a little older at almost 9, 11, and 13) were Lieutenant Dan, Jenny, and Forrest Gump. People went CRAZY when they saw their costumes, but they were so simple and just fun! It lit a fire under James and Will and they have already declared what next year will bring. We'll see if they stick with it or not, but if they go as their current idea, it will be pretty fun!
