I tried this first two years ago when Lydia was just a squishy, immobile little tot. It worked better that time.
I can’t believe I convinced everyone to coordinate their costumes this year. It was funny… some people figured it out right away and then some were like, “Oh, are you a tiger? And you’re a princess!”.
Next year I am going to try and convince them to go as the Von Trapps. It will take much bribery, I’m sure. But, wouldn’t we win Halloween? What if Mr. Darcy trained them to step forward and introduce themselves after his whistle? And we could sing Do-Re-Mi at every door?? Seriously, this is the best idea I’ve ever had and my kids are refusing to play along. Sigh.
I said, “Put your arms down, Kitty.”
I said, “Put your arms in your lap, please.”
I said, “Okay, now look at me. Look at the camera, Kitty.”
“Don’t point, just look at me.”
“Come on, Kitty, hands in your lap and look at the camera.”
Kitty for the win.
