But its time to be prepared, so I googled ghost costumes. Sure ghosts are easy, just a sheet, and two holes. But I wanted some extra ideas. I like to have a visual, and I have never once paid attention to ghost costumes. Not to mention I'm worried about my son's visibility. I'm not convinced two holes in a sheet is very safe. But my son wants the most simplest ghost costume, two holes for eyes, and a round hole for his mouth. But his dad and I have different ideas, we don't think they are safe.

Overall I'm not too excited about facepaint, I don't like it, never use it, but I would rather face paint then no vision.
I have dreams of my children in the same theme costume. I think it would be great if my son was a pirate and my daughter was a parrot. Even thought my son likes pirate stuff, he doesn't wan to be pirate. So since this will probably be the last year, my daughter can't tell me she wants to be a princess, I'm thinking a ghost costume for her too. So I can have at least one year of cute matching kids. Should I do the same ghost costume, like that one from the MNN. Or, slightly different, I don't know if she'll let me put that type of costume on her. I was thinking a white hoodie and a white tutu. I know not so ghost like, but she is pretty picky and pretty girl, and I think she would really love something like this or this, minus the headbands.
He once mentioned being Spiderman a few weeks ago. But I brought up the ghost again, and he said oh yeah. I hope he sticks with the ghost, one day I expect him not to want me to make him a costume, but I thought I would at least be allowed to until after kindergarten. I'm not quite ready to buy a costume. Plus I'm not dressing Nan up as MJ, so he needs to stick with something I can make so they can be matching just one year. I did find a pink spidergirl costume but I would rather die than put my almost two year old in that.
Now what my daughter really likes to do is pretend she is a mommy, so for Halloween, maybe I should just put her hair in a pony, dress her in a downeast wonder tee, yoga pants, and put her baby doll in a sling. Would anyone guess what she is?
One last thing, an actually ghost pattern
I might have posted this on the wrong blog? I'm confused?!
I have seen invested three dollars in a white queen sized sheet, it will give us lots of wiggle room.
