Burke decided on this year’s Halloween costumes over a month ago and has been absolutely unwavering in his decision since then. He requested a Squid costume for himself and an accompanying Ocean costume for Piper Jane. We threw out several alternate “Squid pairings” (a fish, a shark, even Ink) to no avail.
Luckily, my blue tutu/blue headband/blue shirt/blue leggings has been given Burke’s ‘Ocean’ stamp of approval (and Piper’s ‘pretty’ stamp of approval as well- I think she’d wear anything fluffy and princess-like).
While I must admit that I doubted the wisdom of the Squid-and-Ocean idea, I have seen the light. I love the way it turned out; Burke’s a Halloween genius (the man-with-the-yellow-hat-and-Curious-George plan last year was also his idea!).
Also, I can’t wait for you to see the Keadryn-dreamed-up costumes that Jord’s family are wearing this year. Hilarious.
