But seeing all the costumes in the stores and talking to other kids always brings on the fascination and creativity of costumes.
So today the younger two kids were at Grandma's house so I let the older two watch Edward Scissorhands with me (we had to skip over one section...love that feature on the DVD players). Right now they are fascinated by all things Johny Depp since Pirates of the Caribbean came out.
And after the movie they decided that if they ever had somewhere that they had to have a costume, they would all go as Johny Depp Characters.
Elijah said he wanted to be Edward Scissorhands
Allegra wanted to be Jack Sparrow
They decided Malachi could go as Willy Wonka.
But they were stumped as to what 5 year old, tiny little Gabe could be...until the lightbulb went on over Elijah's head.
"He could be an Oompa Loompa!"
