I was, Mary Poppins.
Rykert is a good sport about Halloween. I like that and I appreciate his zeal. However, his costume choices are usually a bit, for lack of a better term, adult. For that reason, he's never been interested in a "couples" costume with me (like Fred and Wilma, Herman and Lily, etc.) The morning of the party, before he went to sleep, he asked which costume Scout was going to wear. I told him that if we had thought ahead he could be a Ghostbuster and she could wear her ghost costume. I was a bit irritated, because (a) it was clever and (b) had we thought of this sooner, it would have been a very fun costume to make from scratch. But we were lucky enough to find a packaged version before the party.
|The costume also came with an unwieldy, inflatable backpack thing.|
I made monster cake pops for the occasion. Their existence is solely because Scout decided to grace us with a solid 2 hour nap right before the party.
