The Countdown has begun...

To Halloween... Aren't you excited too?

Every day, Lance tells me at least two or three new things that he's going to be for Halloween. This is usually followed by him telling me what Audrey, his cousins, and his friends are going to be. Funny, they probably think they have some choice in the matter. Or maybe they're actually thinking about SPRING or EASTER CANDY or something less than 7 months away..

I decided to keep a list of all the things he's going to be for Halloween. Past choices have included a knight (again), a mummy, Darth Vader, Dash, Mr. Incredible, The Incredible Hulk, a scary beast, a Power Ranger. Here's this week so far:
Monday 3/12: Spiderman, an alien
Tuesday 3/13: Batman, Syndrome (from the Incredibles), Dash
Wed 3/14: This is a new one - the Once-ler from Dr. Seuss' The Lorax. All you see of the guy is green arms, but that's enough for Lance..
Fri 3/16: Sleazo (A Space Grizzlies bad guy from the Berenstain Bears book "The Bad Dream")
As of Tues 3/27: A mummy, an astronaut, several random space creatures, a firefighter, a pirate, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz. (He said, "You'll have to buy me gray gloves, a triangle hat, and a big shiny suit!")

I seriously think he spends about an hour a day talking about his Halloween plans... The time you have when you don't have to worry about mortgage payments or global warming or losing those last few pounds of baby weight...
