2 Hours

I thought that I had until October 31 to get a Halloween costume. I was wrong. Jared had told me that he wanted to be a Mummy for Halloween and Seth and I had thought about some ideas. I had put it off for a while, still mulling it over in my mind so I could come up with something. On Tuesday (Oct 7) Jared was invited to a party on Friday, Oct 10. This is the first Halloween Party he has been invited to, and I think is definitely a sign he is growing up...it won't be too long before he won't want to spend Halloween with his family...

On Friday (Hello procrastination) I started on his costume. It seemed fail-proof. I had him get some thermal underwear on and I started wrapping him in a sheet I had cut into strips. 2 Hours later this is what we had:

I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Jared's comment was, "Oh, yeah. I look like a real Mummy because it is a bad job, right?" I wasn't sure how to answer.


When I went to pick him up, he was almost completely unraveled. It took longer to wrap (and sew) the strips to him than it did for him to come undone. I decided that he is going to have to be a Pirate on Halloween...we are not going through with that again.


Did I mention that he had a great time a the party? He did. Next year he wants to have a party at our house...
